The CommonHealth of Kentucky

(#112) Aging

Health issues related to aging and caring for the elderly are increasingly critical as the number of Americans living to the age of 85 and beyond continues to skyrocket. Louisville's Staying Alive: How To Be an Effective Caregiver program helps reduce the mental and physical strain of caregiving while also seeking ways to keep the elderly in familiar surroundings. The Living Well Workshops: Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, also in Louisville, offers a six-week series of free workshops on diet, exercise, meditation, and other techniques for dealing with chronic conditions and aging. And at the University of Kentucky, Nun Study researchers work to determine the causes of Alzheimer's disease.
