            When We're 64 is a practical guide to what to do before we grow older to have a great later life. This book includes all the essentials on working longer, how to fund retirement, volunteering, where to live and what kind of house you'll need. It covers how to stay healthy--and st...ill live a full life if you develop a health condition--and reveals how your attitude towards aging could actually increase your lifespan. There are sections on relationships with family and friends, as well as caring for older relatives and how to navigate the system, plus a sensitive look at loneliness. You're likely to live longer than you think--and I can tell you now, you're not prepared for it. Today's fifty-year-olds are likely to have an astounding 36 or more years to live. So if you're approaching later life, you need to think very differently about what those extra years will hold. Filled with expert advice and new evidence and tips on how to age well, When We're 64 is an eminently readable light-hearted look at how to plan and prepare for what could be the best years of your life. When we're 64, will we be wasting away, as the Beatles once put it, or will we be healthy, financially secure, and leading full and happy lives?

            The Ten Steps of Positive Ageing: A handbook for personal change in later life (EPUB ebook)

            By Robertson, Guy

            Ageing is inevitable - but getting 'old' is optional! We can make a difference to our ageing process - just as we have to learn to grow up, so we have to learn to grow old. Here is a route map we can all follow to find a way through the changes we face as we age, and a toolkit of... exercises to help us follow our chosen path and fulfil our potential. Ageing has got a really bad press but is it really as bad as much of the media make out? And is there anything we can do to make our later years happier and healthier? In this handbook Guy Robertson assembles the case for the defense and explodes some myths along the way. Getting older is not all bad! Indeed the reality is much more positive than many of us could imagine. Find here ten steps that anyone can take to improve the likelihood of living a happy and satisfying life in old age. Research shows that how we think about ageing can have a very significant impact on our health and wellbeing in later life. Concentrating on the psychological and emotional aspects of ageing, these clear practical exercises will empower the reader to engage in a programme of personal change.

            From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been tr...eating mature patients for most of his career. He knows that everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age-but enjoy the benefits of youthThis groundbreaking book holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the diseases of aging we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well-one that is based on supporting the health of the oldest parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies.Our gut bugs-the bacteria that make up the microbiome-largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver's seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.The good news is, it's never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them-and you-thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.

            No one wants to think about getting older. It's true. At any age, when things are moving along normally day to day and everyone seems fit and well, there seems no reason to think about future problems that your friends and relatives might (and probably will) come across as they a...ge. In fact, it might even seem a little morbid to think such thoughts, or possibly even tempting fate? Yet there will come a time when you must raise these issues and, ideally, this should be before any problems arise. The Essential Family Survival Guide to Caring for Older People is the ultimate source of information and help for families with care responsibilities. Deborah Stone draws on her extensive experience working in elder care to offer practical advice on every aspect of the field indepth. Topics range from how to get help immediately, legal information, care funding options, a guide to useful technology and advice on the main physical and mental health issues that affect older people. Plus guidance is given on dealing with social services and ensuring you choose the right care for your situations. Crucially, the book also offers help on how to cope as a carer with practical advice on juggling family, work and your caring responsibilities while looking after yourself.
