An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

By Catherine Campbell

As we start fresh in 2023, there is no better time to start living the best quality life possible. No matter who you are, this means waking up each day with a sense of purpose, feeling hopeful and having something to look forward to. Whether you believe in making resolutions or not, creating the right circumstances for enjoying life to the fullest should be a priority. Being in charge of what you can control gives you the power to truly improve your life. For older adults, retirement living at The Berkeley could be the perfect preventive solution. Don’t wait until it’s too late!

Age aside, the foundation for living the best quality life is having good health. As we age, our health naturally deteriorates, our needs change and being proactive becomes even more important. Eating well, sleeping enough, and getting regular exercise are all crucial to maintaining good health. The motivational importance of belonging to a community - for mental and emotional health - cannot be denied. Community naturally creates a sense of purpose, routine, and accountability, with peace of mind for personal safety as a bonus.

Losing sight of these basic fundamentals leads to an unnecessary decline in one’s health. We continue to feel the weight of our current health care crisis, worrying about getting sick and needing to access health care services. Never has it been more obvious that some of the responsibility lies with us. Taking care of ourselves and those we love is the priority. Being proactive is the key and, by moving to The Berkeley, you take an important step in maintaining your health and wellness so that access to health care professionals is only required for acute needs. By caring for ourselves properly, through proper sleep, regular exercise, good nutrition, routine, and consistent connection to others, we can stave off illness and create a lifestyle that is healthier and more fulfilling.

This year, take the opportunity to get back on track and maybe even consider charting a new course. A move to retirement living will allow you to regain your independence. It requires that you take action to be in control of your health and your future. Consider calling Jenn today to book a tour and see for yourself all of the benefits of retirement living
