Health & Wellness

Should we recommend clients do crossword puzzles or walk briskly for 3 miles when trying to preserve brain health? What about falls—what are hospitals doing to prevent falls in the hospital or upon a patient’s return? Do nutrition supplements actually work? And why do most physicians shy away from addressing sexual issues with patients? Do insurance company wellness programs reward or punish employees? Stories about elder health and wellness appear often in the mainstream media, but this content doesn’t always offer in-depth and constructive information about how to forge strategies, solutions and models that would best serve older adults. When you browse the stories on AgeBlog, you’ll find a wealth of ideas and—best yet—people to connect up with who can discuss their first-hand experience in this topic area.
