Old age is not too difficult if some precautions are taken. Most of the accidents like falls and injuries happen at home. As the body and mind slow down due to age, the reflex actions become slower, the mind finds it more and more difficult to think quick, remember and act. Any new house in which the senior citizens are going to live must be age-proof and conducive to them. If not a new house, the old house can be changed as per the requirements of its senior residents. This book offers some practical precautions to be taken at home to live and avoid old age accidents. After all, prevention is better than cure.

<b>The first authoritative and comprehensive guide to "aging in place"--a burgeoning movement for those who <i>don't</i> want to rely on assisted living or nursing home care--which allows seniors to spend their later years living comfortably, independently, and in their own home or community.</b><br /><br /> For millions of Americans, living in a nursing home or assisted living facility is <i>not</i> how they’d prefer to spend their retirement years.

A necessary resource for seniors, their adult children, and eldercare professionals, <i>How to Age in Place</i> is both a practical roadmap and inspirational guide for the millions of seniors who want to make their own decisions and age well.

<p>Not long ago everyone knew what the word “retirement” meant. The expectation was that you worked until age 65—and then coasted through your golden years courtesy of a comfortable nest egg.</p><p>Today, when living to 90 is common, when savings are slim, when people work longer and change jobs frequently, clinging to an outdated concept of retirement gets you nowhere. The changes ahead require an incremental approach to planning—and you better begin now.</p><p>The new After 50 Lifestyle calls for more than money: it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. <i><b>How Do I Get There from Here?</b></i> helps you plot your direction for the coming decades. The first step is to acknowledge where you are—reviewing your assets, both the tangible (e.g. finances, health, relationships) and intangible (e.g. unfulfilled ambitions and new intentions). Then self-reflective questions and exercises walk you through imagining your future, identifying skills you'll need, and preparing for inevitable twists and turns along the way.</p><p>A retirement of nonstop leisure is not just unreachable, but for most, undesirable. <i><b>How Do I Get There from Here?</b></i> guides you toward a dynamic future...designed just for you.</p>

<b>“The book you hold in your hands is the distillate of a quarter century’s teaching. It is my attempt to answer, ‘What next?’ for students who are embarking on their ‘second act.’”</b><br /> <b>—Julia Cameron</b><br />  <br /> Julia Cameron has inspired millions with her bestseller on creativity, <i>The Artist’s Way</i>. In <i>It’s Never Too Late To Begin Again, </i>she turns her eye to a segment of the population that, ironically, while they have more time to be creative, are often reluctant or intimidated by the creative process. Cameron shows readers that retirement can, in fact, be the most rich, fulfilling, and creative time of their lives. <br /><br /> When someone retires, the newfound freedom can be quite exciting, but also daunting. The life that someone had has changed, and the life to come is yet to be defined. In this book, Cameron shows readers how cultivating their creative selves can help them navigate this new terrain. She tells the inspiring stories of retirees who discovered new artistic pursuits and passions that more than filled their days—they nurtured their souls.  <br /><br />This twelve-week course aimed at defining—and creating—the life you want to have as you redefine and re-create yourself, this book includes simple tools that will guide and inspire you to make the most of this time in your life: <br /><br />-  Memoir writing offers an opportunity to reflect on and honor past experience. This book guides you through the daunting task of writing an entire memoir, breaking it down into manageable pieces. <br /> -  Morning Pages—private, stream-of-consciousness writing done daily—allow you to express wishes, fears, delights, resentments, and joys, which in turn, provide focus and clarity for the day at hand.<br /> -  Artist Dates encourage fun and spontaneity.<br /> -  Solo Walks quell anxiety and clear the mind.<br /><br />This fun, gentle, step-by-step process will help you explore your creative dreams, wishes, and desires...and help you quickly find that it’s never too late to begin again.

Today is the first day I've had the desire to write. I've thought about it for months, even years, but this is the first time I feel the need. I want to write of the struggle she's going through with this horrific disease; the everyday living. I want to write how the caregiver loses herself along with the victim. Victim--first time I've used that word. But there is no other word that best describes it. Carol is a victim of time. <br /> <br />I've lost any thought that she'll get better. I've come to the conclusion I'm living alone, even though she's with me in body. She doesn't talk to me in understandable conversation. We play charades to discover what she wants. I've stopped all walks and exercise. My agoraphobia is back or has it just been hiding? I don't want to go to the store because I'm alone, even though she's at my side. I hate life, eating fatty foods, hoping to have a heart attack and die. Then I won't have to face her dying in front of me, inch by inch.
