Taking care of your health after 50 is an art requiring you to maintain your body weight, avoid chronic illness, and battle age-related issues simultaneously. There are many simple and proven ways to balance this so you can stay as healthy as possible as you age.
1. Use IV therapy
IV therapy helps replenish body energy faster than oral supplements and supports a nourishing diet. IV drips loaded with various nutrients can help those over 50 recover from an illness, fight fatigue, or feel energized. NAD IV therapy Palm Springs offered by Drip Hydration helps boost your immunity and strengthen your body enormously. Their IV infusion helps fight age-related issues such as sagging skin and brain fog. Mobile IV medics, My IV Infusion, and the IV Doc are other companies offering similar therapies in Palm Springs.
Many aging boomers and seniors in the Lehigh Valley who live in row homes, townhouses, colonials, and other multi-level homes in Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton are asking how to best fund a home stair lift. Despite having trouble “doing the stairs” they are determined to remain living in their homes and determined to find the money to install a residential stair lift.
Most seniors and others are surprised to know that Medicare does not pay for a home stair lift. In fact, only a small percentage of new stair lifts installed each year are paid for with major insurance money or other programs run by the government. Government funding stair lifts are usually done through a Medicaid program for low-income individuals and those who financially qualify. Similarly, depending on where one lives, there can be a state and/or local program available to fund or finance a home stair lift for those who qualify.
Most older adults, especially women, can remember slathering on baby oil and baking in the sun for hours in pursuit of that perfect tan. Other seniors who worked in construction, farming, and other outdoor professions, never considered applying sunscreen in their youth. At that time, it was considered harmless — even healthy — to soak in the sun’s rays.
