Healthy Lifestyle May Lead to Longer Lifespan for the Elderly
A new study from the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Aging and Population Health found that seniors who exercise regularly, eat healthily, avoid smoking, and basically practice healthy lifestyle tend to be free from disability during their aging years. With this, those practicing healthy living also end up 80 percent of their lives without disabilities, as compared with those not into healthy lifestyles with at just 55 to 60 percent of their lives free from disabilities.
Considering that this is also paramount to quality of life, the elderly who practice such healthy habits can be deemed as role models to other seniors today. With the widespread nursing care options, home care services, and other provisions available today, these seniors can take advantage of the best quality of life and care they can get as long as they can.
