While reaching retirement brings on many new opportunities to enjoy your free time, there are also new considerations to be addressed. You may choose to downsizie and sell your home or need to create or revise legal documents which may be critical in the event of an emergency, or begin taking care of a spouse who may need some additional healthcare assistance.
Fun Suggestions from the Team at Wesley Enhanced Living
You dream of long, relaxed vacations, easy mornings, slow and elaborate dinners. That’s the beauty of not having to get up and go, go, go! Don’t let words like retirement, aches, pains, nursing homes intimidate you as you grew older. Times have changed. With retirement, you are in the best years of your life, and you are never too old to learn new things or have new adventures.
As we age, our metabolism slows down. Those fries, pizzas, and chocolate shakes you could eat in your 20’s only cause the love handles to grow in your later years. It is possible, however, to take back your health and manage your weight as you grow older. You have what it takes, and we can help. We support our seniors by helping them stay fit mentally, physically, and socially through various opportunities for growth.
Helpful Advice from the Team at Wesley Enhanced Living
As children, most of us went through a regimen of shots to protect us from various childhood diseases. As you grow into adulthood, your body can ward off many illnesses because of these vaccines. Upon reaching the age of 50, you may notice that you do not recover as quickly as in your younger years. The senior population, like children, become very susceptible to complications from preventable diseases. Protect yourself from unnecessary suffering by staying up to date with your vaccines, including getting an annual flu shot.
