As we age, it is so important to continue to learn about our health and new ways to manage conditions such as diabetes or congestive heart failure. Of course, when your doctor gives you such a diagnosis, they will go over it with you, but there is still plenty to learn!
Take advantage of health classes offered at your local hospital, or in your community. Many senior centers offer classes taught by a nurse that you can take advantage of. Here at Village Lake Inn, we offer a new Healthy Hints program twice a month where we cover different subjects on senior health. We encourage all our guests-and you-to come!
Often, learning about how to manage your condition and putting those tips into practice can lead to a reduction in the amount of medication you have to take, which is always a plus. It can also help you feel better and improve quality of life.
So take advantage of every learning opportunity you can, and make your life better!
