Welcome to Healthy Aging

In the first part of the 20th century, average life expectancy was only 45 years, with century, average life expectancy increased to 78.6 years. With the added 33 years to our life expectancy, we need to work toward a new image of aging, one that includes active, productive, vital years that are full of love, laughter and intimacy.

Some scientists tell us that 70% of the characteristics of aging are based on the choices we make every day - our personal lifestyle choices. Our attitude and our sense of control over our lives is the key in determining whether we just add years to our life or we add life to those years.
