Good health is important at any age, but staying healthy is especially key in later years. That's because as people age, their bodies start to wear down, making them more prone to illness and injury, and slowing the body's ability to heal. Today, WPS Health Insurance, Wisconsin's leading not-for-profit health insurer and top provider of Wisconsin Medicare supplement plans, recognizes World Health Day–which this year spotlights healthy aging–with free resources available at the senior health page on the WPS Health Center.
"Growing older is a part of life, and the choices we make today will have a big effect on how healthy we will feel in later years," said Dr. Marvin Wiener, Senior Medical Director at WPS Health Insurance. "Even if we feel young at heart, we need to take good care of our bodies and learn positive ways to deal with stress now, so we can delay or even prevent the physical aches, pains, and problems that often come with age."
WPS' senior health page offers an array of resources to help Wisconsin seniors stay healthy and learn to manage the special health concerns of older adults. Topics include hearing loss, osteoarthritis, memory loss, sexuality and physical changes, and dozens of others. In addition, helpful interactive tools enable visitors to make better choices about exercise, medications, treatments, tests, and more.
"Good health is key to a good life at any age," said Dr. Wiener. "Our goal at WPS is to help Wisconsin residents protect their health and financial security so they can live the happy and healthy lives everyone deserves."
WPS encourages individuals and families looking for more valuable health tips and strategies to check out the WPS Health Center and the WPS Learning Center for free articles on preventing illness, making wise health decisions, and other timely topics.
