ACTIVE AT EVERY AGE - Exercise is the key to healthier retirement years
Seniors who exercise can look forward to the rewards of active living: longer, healthier lives and fewer threats of serious illness.

Retirement is supposed to be the beginning of a more carefree stage of life, as the responsibilities of career and raising children give way to freedom and free time to pursue favorite hobbies, travel to new places and devotion to grandchildren. But retirement reality often turns out quite different; many seniors spend more time with their doctors than their grandkids as they deal with frequent health problems, bouts of depression or declining cognitive abilities.

Nothing escapes the aging process, the brain included. The brain’s normal aging process means the older we get, the more memory lapses we experience. We can also expect the brain’s speed and sharpness to continue their gradual, normal decline. But forgetfulness that affects a senior’s daily activities may be a sign of the more serious medical problem known as dementia.
