Who are the happiest and healthiest seniors?

Eleven keys to looking forward to tomorrow

1. GOOD VISION

Do I have the best correction possible so that I can see effectively? (Are my glasses cleaned every morning?)

2. GOOD HEARING

Do I have the best correction possible so that I can communicate effectively? (Are my hearing aid batteries checked every morning?)

3. MAXIMALLY AMBULATORY

Do I have the best possible durable medical devices to achieve my potential ability to move about in my living environment? (Is my walker and/or wheelchair checked for safe operation?)

4. MAXIMALLY MOBILE

Can I reach my maximum potential to come and go from my living environment to satisfy my desire to run errands? (Are there clear cut travel arrangements, and do I know about them?)

5. APPROPRIATE LIVING ENVIRONMENT

Am I living safely? (Can I get around successfully in the space in which I live?)

6. HEALTHY AND SATISFACTORY MEALS

Do I like eating what I get to eat? (Can I have successful input on the selection of meals that I eat?)

7. SUCCESSFUL STRESS REDUCTION

Can I find acceptable or reasonable solutions to what worries me? (Are there people available to help me accomplish this?)

8. SUCCESSFUL DIAGNOSIS & TREATMENT OF ILLNESS

Am I taking care of my medical problems promptly and thoroughly? (Are my family members helping me to get healthier?)

9. MEANINGFUL ACTIVITIES

What do I like to do, and do I get to do what it is that makes me happy? (Are there people available to help me accomplish this?)

10. REASONABLE DEMANDS

Are my demands on my family reasonable; are my family's demands on me also reasonable? (Are we working to meet each other half way?)

11. TRUSTWORTHY ASSISTANT

Have I selected, and am I successfully interacting with, an individual who can help me make decisions and manage my finances? (Who is the best person(s) to select for this role?)
