Healthy Aging

As women age, they will have to face a number of health-related issues, including preventing illness, maintaining mental health, paying for care and avoiding falls, as well as many others. Aging exposes women to a great risk of diseases and conditions, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Fortunately, many of these illnesses can be prevented through lifestyle changes, regular screenings and good health habits. People who prepare early for healthy aging stand a great chance of being rewarded with a higher quality of life when they get older.
