What you can do to Age Well

There are things you can do to stay healthy and independent as you age. The good news is - it’s never too late to start!

Get your health screenings

Preventive health screenings are important because they can find diseases early when they are easier to treat and can help prevent some diseases from occurring. Your doctor can tell you which screenings are right for you. CarePartners of Connecticut members have $0 copays for most preventive health screenings!

Stay active

Being fit can help you to avoid many problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Exercise can also help you maintain your independence longer by improving strength and flexibility.

CarePartners of Connecticut members get a SilverSneakers membership at no additional cost! Whether you play tennis, swim laps, do yoga, or lift weights, SilverSneakers has you covered. For details, visit SilverSneakers.com, or call SilverSneakers at 1-888-423-4632 (TTY: 711).

Eat a healthy diet

A healthy diet can help protect you against heart disease and certain types of cancer. Fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, protein (from tofu, beans, and quinoa, etc.), and whole grains are part of a well balanced eating plan.

CarePartners of Connecticut members can use their Extra Discounts to save 50% off the subscription rate for DASH for Health, an online program dedicated to helping you eat better by using the DASH Diet!

Stay sharp

Research shows that stimulating your mind through active learning slows cognitive decline. Keep learning and mentally challenging yourself. CarePartners of Connecticut members can access memory fitness programs from Posit Science through BrainHQ. A subscription to BrainHQ is covered for all plans!

Stay engaged

Social connections are important to your overall health. Having a friend or family member who shares a hobby or interest can improve your mental well-being. Your local senior center is a good resource to find social events and meet new people. 

Get your sleep

While changes to sleep patterns are a normal part of the aging process, you still need a good night sleep as you get older. Not getting enough sleep can lead to trouble learning, solving problems, and remembering. Use these helpful tips to improve your sleep habits

Reduce stress

CarePartners of Connecticut members can use their Extra Discounts to save on programs that can help with stress management, such as Meditation 101 and Ompractice, services to reduce physical stress such as massage therapy through ChooseHealthy, and services to reduce environmental stress such as LifeCycle Transitions!
