“Getting old ain’t for sissies,” that’s what my neighbor used to say.
The good news is there are many small things we can do daily to slow down the aging process.
Keep moving. Seven thousand steps or about 30 minutes of daily exercise seems to essential to staying healthy and aging well. A little bit of exercise daily goes a long way, we don’t need to go crazy working out.
Engage with others. Saying hello to others we encounter during daily errands or reconnecting with friends and family can provide a huge boost to our mental health and help us to enjoy life and to live longer.
Use your brain. Read books, listen to podcasts, do puzzles, try out a new recipe for jalapeno cornbread. Changing your routine and doing new things will improve your cognitive functioning and it could slow down the aging process.

Today I want to talk about the importance of medical ratings for providers.
Whether you are receiving home health care, or you have a family member in a long-term care facility, or you would simply like to know the ratings of the hospital where you are going to receive an outpatient procedure, you have options.
I am attaching a link to the Medicare.gov website where you can find the ratings for hospitals, home healthcare providers, long-term care facilities and medical service providers.
If the ratings for a provider is lower than 3 or 3.5 stars, you may want to consider other providers.
Ratings can change monthly so do your homework. Here is the link:
If your medication’s have changed, if your doctors have changed, or if you’re hearing a lot about new plans and you’re just curious, book a time on my calendar pull out and I’ll be happy to review your options.
