Presbyterian Villages of Michigan is committed to serving seniors and communities. It’s our goal to be a first-line provider of resources, including information. Aging should be an adventure, not a scary trip!

In the PVM Blog, the experts at PVM will regularly publish articles and information. Topics may range from smart ways to age in place in your long-time home, to tips on how to shop for a senior community. We will have articles on transportation, wellness, nutrition, technology, activities, outlook-on-life, and more.

I am asking all of our readers to help in getting rid of excessive use of voice mail by companies and organizations with which we all do business. The following comments are ones they need to know. If everyone takes surveys and writes letters expressing our dismay it could make a difference. Here are some of my comments to consider:

This month we have a special guest columnist, Caitlin Hempton. Caitlin is a student at Oakland University in their Wellness, Health Promotion, & Injury Prevention program who is interning with PVM.

There is something intrinsically human about laughing. Regardless of nationality, race, religion or creed, if someone in a crowd starts laughing, most of the crowd will end up laughing. It is built into us.

This year on October 21st the National Community Pharmacists Association, along with their sponsor Consumer Reports, will be rolling out a brand-new wellness holiday, National Check Your Meds Day.  On this day consumers are encouraged to bring their medications and supplements to their local pharmacies for “brown bag” medication reviews.

As the weather starts to change we are reminded that fall is in the air. To some, fall reminds us of crisp cool air, warm delicious drinks and the color change. To others the word fall might mean something entirely different. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), every 11 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury. As we begin to age a fear of falling can become a part of our everyday lives, dictating the things we do and places we go. Luckily there are easy ways to manage your risk for falling!

How exciting it is to report that a major magazine is echoing my message of many years. The term anti-aging is out, and the notion of aging well is in! Allure Magazine has announced in its latest issue that they are making a resolution to stop using the term anti-aging. They state, "changing the way we think about aging starts with changing the way we talk about aging."
