Overview

The 50 Plus Wellness Program by Harris H. McIlwain, Lori F. Steinmeyer, Debra Fulghum Bruce, R. E. Fulghum

Growing older can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience—if you're prepared to meet your changing physical, emotional and financial needs. A complete, no-nonsense guide to health care and emotional well-being for mature adults, it will help you keep control of your life, suggesting a step-by-step program to help you stay very active and very healthy for many years to come. Shows you how to identify and eliminate risks and explains along the way how to plan a sound, nutritious diet (even for special needs), and how to handle emotional ups and downs that often accompany aging. It even provides tables and charts on everything from cholesterol-level recommendations to disability benefits—with questionnaires that help you hand-tailor the wellness program to meet your specific needs. Features a special section by a medical economics consultant on the financial aspects of health care for the elderly as well as checklists for determining medical risks, keeping track of expenses and more.
