Living Well

Taking Care Of Yourself In The Middle And Later Years, 4th Edition

Advances in medical care allow us to live longer, but to enjoy life we need to stay healthy. Completely revised and updated, Living Well presents a thorough but manageable program for keeping in good mental and physical shape as we grow older. In Part I, Dr. James Fries includes the most up-to-date medical information about how many diseases associated with aging-such as osteoarthritis, diabetes, and atherosclerosis-can be avoided or put off with the latest medication and alternative treatment options. Part II addresses many other challenges that people in their middle and later years face-from planning for retirement, to keeping your mind active, to maintaining a healthy sex life, to writing a will. Finally, Part III provides easy-to-use decision charts- on everything from hip pain to incontinence to diet and exercise-that quickly help determine whether professional intervention is necessary or whether home treatment will suffice. Comprehensive and accessible, Living Well is the essential reference for promoting a long, happy, and healthy life.
