Beat Aging Challenges

Aging in Place

Aging brings with it certain challenges. Whether you find yourself "aging challenged" or are taking care of someone who might need some help, you can beat aging challenges by becoming aware of them and taking action to make things better. From physical changes to financial scams, be prepared to prevent and manage the common challenges of aging.

Longevity Calculators

Longevity Calculator

Longevity calculators are a fun way to see where you stand. Not only do you get a prediction of how long you will live, you can see the impact of your choices and behaviors on your life expectancy. Try out multiple life expectancy calculators and see how much they agree on the number of years they predict you will live. Make a few changes and give these life expectancy calculators another try.

Mind Games for Brain Fitness

Brain

When it comes to mental and brain fitness, use it or lose it. Games are a great way to use various areas of your brain. The key is to make sure that your brain is in problem solving mode - learning how to do or accomplish something. That is what helps the brain the most. If these games get to be predictable or automatic, then it is time to find a new activity.
