In America, age is a big deal. We are a youth-obsessed culture that is always looking for the next best thing. This can be seen in the way we talk about aging.

We often use words like "elderly" or "senior citizen" to describe older adults, as if they are a different species.

This othering creates a sense of distance between us and them, which can lead to negative attitudes and stereotypes.  Ageism is a form of discrim...

Imagine for a moment that you are watching your loved one slowly deteriorate.

They can no longer remember your name, what they did yesterday, what to do with their keys, or even how to brush their teeth. As the disease progresses, they become more and more withdrawn, until eventually, they can no longer recognize the faces of their loved ones. It's a heart-wrenching experience that I wouldn't wish on anyone.

This is the reali...

We all hope to live long and healthy lives. But as we age, our bodies change and we may face new challenges. This can be difficult to accept, but it's important to remember that we still have rights and choices - even as we get older.

For example, did you know that you have the right to choose how you want to be cared for if you become incapacitated? Or that there are options for long-term care that can help you stay in your own...

Imagine for a moment that you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Perhaps it's diabetes or heart disease. You know that if you don't take care of yourself, the consequences could be severe. So you diligently follow your treatment plan, checking your blood sugar levels or taking your medication every day without fail.

But then one day, life gets in the way. You miss a dose of medication, or you forget to test your blo...

For thousands of years, humans have been aging. And as our technology has progressed, so has our understanding of aging. We now know that while chronological aging is inevitable, biological aging is not. That's why it's so important to understand the biology of aging. We can reduce our risk factors for disease and improve our quality of life by making conscious choices about how we live our lives.

Researchers have focused on how music can benefit those with Alzheimer's. Anecdotal evidence shows that music can tap memories and reduce anxiety, pain, heart rate, and blood pressure. It can help accelerate healing, boost learning, improve neurological disorders and increase social interaction.

Musical memories are often preserved in Alzheimer's disease because key brain areas linked to musical memory are relatively undamag...

Before the pandemic, the idea of aging in place was becoming more popular. Some baby boomers are now wary of nursing homes, where at least one-third of U.S. Covid-19 deaths have occurred, so they are interested in aging in place. The trend is making home shortages and prices even worse for younger buyers who want to get a piece of the real estate wealth.

The Silent Generation (born before 1946) had long owned the majority of real es...

Here are a few of the concerns that seniors face as we live longer: Memory loss, Dementia or Alzheimer's dise...
