During this time each year my husband and I scour catalogs, browse the internet, and actually look at the retail flyers we receive each Sunday in search of the perfect meaningful gift to get our parents for the holidays. What to get for those that need nothing, have the means to purchase what they want, and have way more sentimental gifts than necessary — “Living Agelessly” is the answer. You are given answers to your most common questions about aging gracefully.
Covering topics such as: Hitting the Road, Volunteering, Food as Potent Medicine, Move that Body, Safety on the Road, and Age-proofing Your Home, this all-inclusive guide will help you move into the golden years. Retirement is a lot different now than it was in times past and you really need to prepare for exiting the workforce just as you prepared for entering it. No longer do you exit the workforce and sit on your porch swing drinking iced tea and counting cars that go up and down the road. Retirees often volunteer, travel, or conquer a new career. There are so many options, so many things to do, so many places to go. Great planning can make anything possible. Life is not over when you retire, it is just beginning.
This book, “Living Agelessly,” is extremely easy-to-understand and down-to-earth. Linda Altoonian has created a means for the everyday person to make the preparations they need to begin thinking about for their years to come.
