Old Is the New Young: Erickson's Secrets to Healthy Livingby Matt Narrett
Synopses & Reviews
Empowering adults to live healthier, happier, more active lives
I . . . commend Erickson Living . . . and acknowledge its leadership in promoting healthy aging for its residents and, with this book, the wider population. In doing so, Erickson continues to show the way.”
—From the Foreword by Horace Deets, Former Executive Director, AARP
George Burns once remarked, You cant help getting older, but you can help getting old.” With twenty-five years of experience working with seniors and studying aging, the Erickson Corporation has amassed a wealth of insights that support this maxim. In Old Is the New Young, leading specialists take the latest clinical research findings on aging and how to improve and maintain health to produce a one-of-a-kind book—a book replete with easily accessible tools and simple steps that all those over fifty can apply to their own lives. They approach aging as a three-part process: keeping whats intact; recovering whats been lost; and compensating when necessary. Weaving in inspiring life stories with plenty of laughs from seniors themselves, the book comprises four sections that address the key aspects of life—mental, physical, social, and financial—and how to keep them thriving as we grow . . . young.
