My Elder Home Share housemate who will be 90 this summer is quite a find. She without having consciously chosen too follows good practices for aging well and protecting brain health. Something I have become passionate about myself since starting this business and becoming more aware of the importance of taking care of my own brain health as we age.
She has a diet rich in healthy fats and low in processed carbohydrates, avocados are a key feature. She does the crossword every day and plays bridge regularly, has good social contact with family and friends - she still meets up with a school friend from her childhood. She gets a walk in most afternoons, has a regular sleep pattern and a positive upbeat attitude.
As her home share companion, I am there to fulfil a specific need of providing security at night. I must say I feel really lucky to be living with this bright bubbly lady who has lifted my spirits and shown me that the proof really is in the pudding when it comes to aging well and following some key principles to bring it all together.
