For the past twenty years, the month of September has been recognized as Healthy Aging Month, an annual occurrence to raise awareness about the positive aspects of growing older.
As the numbers of people age 45 and older grows every year, the focus of September’s Healthy Aging Month is to inspire these adults to improve their overall health and well-being.
Healthy aging includes more than just one’s physical wellness; rather it also encompasses a healthy mental, emotional, social, and financial state.
It is a great reminder of how vital it is that we care for ourselves and our aging populations. As we age, we all experience changes and it becomes increasingly important to prioritize our own wellness.
