Q: What are some ways I can maintain an independent lifestyle?

A: Regular check-ups, staying active, and eating well all contribute to your quality of life. Adding safety features to your home can help ensure your living environment is more suitable should your needs change. Beyond safeguarding your physical health, keeping a positive mindset is critical. Remain purpose-driven and active in your community; older adults who stay socially engaged live longer, experience fewer chronic illnesses, and enjoy better mental health. Whatever keeps you connected and participating in society (religious groups, volunteer opportunities, or classes) will keep you happier, healthier, and living more independently.
