ife expectancy is on the increase and many people are living into their 90s and beyond. This means that planning for aging is of vital importance for everyone. People remain healthy as when they they have day to day social intercourse, eat well and get plenty of exercise. This is why the whole range of senior living from independent living in apartments to assisted living, nursing care, memory care and hospice are things that we need to think about. Our Senior Lifestyles section presents a variety of living situations for seniors from apartments to total care, where people can be safe, live according to their abilities and have a sense of community. Aging can be done purposefully and with dignity in the Bucks County area. Living situations are now staffed with professionals who offer rehabilitation, recreation and medical care. Diet and lifestyle can make a difference, so it can never be too early to think about these things for ourselves and those we love. Aging does not have to be something to dread, but can be another step in our development.
