Aging can be associated with limitations and a loss of independence. That’s why I’m thrilled to witness an empowering movement in senior health care in which patients play more active roles to improve medical conditions and truly take control of their own destinies.
Senior health care doesn’t have to be a matter of strictly following doctor’s orders. In fact, when patients set specific goals, overcome obstacles and meet objectives, it can be a powerful experience, beneficial to both their confidence and health.
By taking ownership of one’s health care, whether it’s learning to cope with a medical condition or trying new strategies to improve one, patients become the CEO of their care, invested and committed to the most important business – their health.
