Strategies to Help You Stay Independent
Surveys suggest that about 90 percent of older adults want to live independently for as long as possible. But independence requires a level of physical function that can be difficult to maintain if you have a disability—and a recent U.S. National Institute on Aging (NIA) analysis reveals that 40 percent of Americans over age 65 fall into this category.


Your 3-Point Plan for Stronger Bones
Falls among older adults are on the rise, according to recent research (JAMA Internal Medicine). Analysis of national data on people age 65 and older revealed that the number of seniors with at least one self-reported fall during the past two years rose from about 28 percent to about 36 percent in a 12-year period.


The New Diet That May Preserve Your Memory

A recent study suggests that a new diet known by the acronym MIND could more than halve your risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) even if you don't follow it meticulously. The eating plan cherry-picks from the Mediterranean and DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets, both of which have been found to reduce the risk of cardiovascular conditions such as high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.
