Health & Wellness topics for Baby Boomers

Back when we Boomers were kids, there was a television commercial that proclaimed, “When you’ve got your health, you’ve got just about everything.” Doubtless, even though we heard it a hundred times, few of us understood just how true that slogan would prove to be.

But now we deal daily with the health challenges of aging. Age is a risk factor for many chronic conditions, including diabetes, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and COVID-19 to our list.

Which is why we cannot overstate the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. After all, the youngest of us are now in our late 50s. And even if we’ve already aged into Medicare or are well into our Retirement years, we still want the good health that’s needed to maintain our active lives.

Giving Your Frail Aging Parent “Space”—How Dangerous Is That?

Let’s face it, some elders are not just stubborn, they’re flat out dangerous to themselves. They insist on independence. They refuse when you offer to step in and help.

They refuse when you offer to step in and help. They think they are fine when everyone around them can see they’re not. And the aging parents who live alone, have poor balance, falls, and still refuse to move or let someone live with them are the worst. Is there anything concerned family can do to prevent disaster? Sometimes yes, but sometimes there is no option but to wait for the inevitable crisis. When you can, you can let the aging parent know that if something goe…

It’s an irreversible condition and it can cause gradual and total loss of sight. This could include your own aging parents. Many elders learn to get by, adapt and manage with some kind of help. What if they could just call a number and ask someone to find something for them? Now they can. Yes, there’s an app for that.

Frustration For Families: Law Enforcement Isn’t Pursuing Financial Elder Abusers

When someone thinks a person is taking financial advantage of an aging parent, the public message is an urge to report to Adult Protective Services, or equivalent. APS, sometimes called by other names, is a local government entity tasked with investigating complaints about elder abuse and neglect. After I hear families describe their distress over the abuse itself, they complain of another frustration. No prosecution of the perpetrator happens. The crime of financial abuse of elders is rampant and growing. People are living longer and they become more vulnerable with a…

Now that thieves can spoof the recipient of a call by showing a “real” number on caller ID, it’s easier than ever for them to intimidate your aging parent. The way this evil game works is this: the caller has your aging parent’s telephone number and knows your parent to be at least of Social Security age. They buy this data. The caller immediately tells your loved one in an authoritative voice that her Social Security number has been blocked. Of course, this draws the expected reaction from most people. What should I do?
