Happy to 102

Happy to 102 (Available on Amazon.com) is the first book in our senior wellness series and focuses on healthy longevity, which we define as remaining healthy, active, sharp and happy throughout an extensive lifespan. We are living longer than ever. Centenarians are the fastest growing segment of our population. Before we know it, 102 just may become the new 75. As lifespan increases, we also want to see health-span increase. Happy to 102 lays out all those factors-diet, exercise, sociability, mental challenge, sense of purpose-that make the difference not only in how long we live but in how well we live. Based on groundbreaking scientific research of the longest living people on Earth, Happy to 102 spells out precisely what it takes to delay or escape Alzheimer’s and other chronic diseases, slow down the process of aging and enjoy better health in our senior years. With an emphasis on aging in place with in-home care, Happy to 102 unlocks the secrets to longevity and inspires us to live happier, healthier lives at any age.

The Five Senses

The Five Senses (Available on Amazon.com) is the fourth book in our award-winning senior wellness series and provides information, insights and practical advice to help older adults cope with these changes in sensory awareness.

Managing this decline is a crucial component of happy and healthy aging. The Five Senses provides a detailed overview of the changes we experience in our senses as we age and offers practical guidance on managing this evolution for improved quality of life. Armed with this knowledge, older adults can maintain independence and live comfortably in their own homes as they age.
