"I'm just not cut out for a nursing home!"

Dear Customer,


      I have nothing against nursing homes.IL cover


      In fact, I have friends and family members who are glad they made that choice.  


      But I've decided that I want to stay in my home as long as I possibly can.


      My husband Frank agrees with me.


      Odds are you want to stay in your home, too — even if it means finding someone to help you in your later years. 


      If you are like me, and you want to stay in your home, then you need Independent for Life: How to Stay Healthy, Keep Active, and Live WellInto Your 90s and Beyond, our new step-by-step guidebook to aging in place. We walk you through all the medical, financial, and emotional decisions you'll face if you want to say "no" to a nursing home.


      For example, you'll learn ...

  • The one thing you MUST do to continue living in your own home as you age. And there's free help to do it! Page 131.
  • This simple movement can keep your joints flexible and decrease your risk of falls. Page 328.
  • The first thing you should do if you are considering an in-home caregiver for yourself or a loved one. Page 146.
  • What every older American should drink every day to protect their memory. It’s delicious! Page 316.
  • The 3 most important things you can do to stay healthy and independent for life! Page 162.


      Independent for Life explains how you can afford to stay in your own comfortable, safe surroundings.


      Plus, it’s loaded with healthy tips and smart ideas for protecting your independence.

Plan Now, While Youre Still Healthy!

      Take a look at this checklist, and make sure you’ve thought about these potential issues.


      Any one of them could determine whether you’re able to stay in your home as you grow older ...  

  • Medical history. (Any chronic illnesses?)
  • Mental sharpness. (Any signs of decline?)
  • Financial status. (Can you afford it?)
  • Support system. (Who could you call in an emergency?)
  • Health and legal documents (Power of attorney, etc.)

          Of course, it’s best to discuss all of these angles with your loved ones now, when you’re healthy, and before you’re facing an immediate decision.

      We give you all the crucial information you need to know about these topics and many others in our new book, Independent for Life.  

  • How to fight off frailty as you age. Staying strong and healthy may be easier than you think! Page 345.

Prevent Falls by Making Your Home Safer!

      If you fall and injure yourself, it can be devastating for your independence.


      That’s why a few basic safety upgrades are essential if you plan to stay at home as you age.


      As you’ll learn in Independent for Life, installing grab bars near toilets and tubs should be one of your first changes.


      And it’s always a good idea to remove clutter and even throw rugs that could cause someone to trip and fall.


      More expensive and complex jobs might include widening doorways and installing ramps for wheelchairs, installing more accessible appliances, and replacing old doorknobs with lever handles.

How to Make Your Money Last!

      Lots of seniors worry about their savings. But it’s even more important to control expenses.


      The good news is, most people spend a lot less than they expect once they’ve stopped working.


      In fact, reducing costs could make it even easier to enjoy your later years in your own home, instead of in a nursing home!

      Why? Because, with more money in the bank, you can afford the in-home care you need — should it be necessary — which is often cheaper than paying expensive nursing home costs.


      To help you save money wherever you can, Independent for Life includes some valuable secrets on CUTTING everyday costs, AVOIDING unnecessary expenses, and SAVING money in unexpected ways ...

Paying for Healthcare

      While most expenses will go down as you get older, we all know that healthcare costs always seem to climb higher.


      Independent for Life, can help with that, too!


      For starters, be sure to review your Medicare plans and supplements every year, to make sure you’ve chosen the right plan and that you’re getting the MOST for your money.


      Also, always be on the lookout for ways to save on your prescriptions.


      It often pays to shop around instead of using the same pharmacy all the time.


      And double-check your medical bills for mistakes: You’ll be surprised by how many billing errors you find.


      Plus, follow these smart tips ...

  • If youre over 62, you maybe eligible for a plan that could put thousands of dollars in your pocket now ... that you’ll never have to pay back! Page 16.
