Welcome to the new Living Younger Blog. Brought to you by the geriatric medical team at MetroHealth, this new blog will cater directly to our senior patients and their families. Here, our doctors and physician assistants will be sharing frequent insights on living life to the fullest during one’s senior years.
As medical providers, one of our great joys is the interaction that we have with you, our clients. Over the years, we have gained a keen sense of the issues that matter most to seniors, and we will talk about those issues here. We hope to inform you, inspire you, and occasionally make you laugh – because laughter makes us all live a little bit younger.
Whether you are entering your senior years or caring for someone who is, we hope that this blog will serve as a resource for making the most of this phase of life. Here are the main categories of our blog:
- Diet and Healthy Eating for Seniors
Treating your body right starts with eating right. Your diet directly affects the way you feel and how your body functions. We will keep you up-to-date on the best diet practices to adopt and which ones to avoid during your senior years.
