Healthy Aging: Every Day Counts

Our minds and bodies evolve throughout our lifetime, but knowing what is normal and what is not can be important for preventing negative changes and embracing the positive ones. As you get older, you may experience drops in energy, strength, memory, oral health, and libido, and you will likely get wrinkles, gray hair, and gain weight.

You are not alone. Today, older adults (people aged 65 years and older) comprise about 13% of the U.S. population. This number will more than double to about 71.5 million people by 2030. People are living longer now than ever, but aging can be a challenge.
