Older Americans Month gives us all an opportunity to reflect on both the contributions of seniors as well as their needs. Older Michiganians Day is also celebrated this month on the lawn of our state capitol on May 15. If you are interested in attending reach out to your Area Agency on Aging or COA for more details. If you're not sure where to start call us at Senior Times and we will direct you.
Fitness is a key focus of this issue and each of us should seek to find ways to incorporate movement into our daily lives. It is suggested that our bodies were designed to move five miles a day as part of our regular activities. Not surprising is the reality that active individu- als experience increased energy, sleep better, generally recover more quickly from injuries, and so much more. Regular exercise can also decrease the risk for significant chronic conditions, including dementia. Two events to support local dementia programs include the Cinco de Mayo celebration on May 4 and the Rock-A-Thon on May 17. See pages 12 and 13 for more details.
Do not forget about your hearing and vision health either. When these are functioning at their optimal levels, overall health is better. Local dollars are available to assist those with financial need.
