As we all know, esp. if we are over 50, 60, 70, or 80 and beyond ... we are the preferred target for the Corona Virus.
What can we do?
Obviously being a bid older, we may have sub-optimal levels of health and therefore will have more complication than younger people. - Know that, also makes it clear that we should do everything to keep us in top condition. - Sadly, and all to often, for anyone living in an old age home or similar and relies on food being served, the food may not deliver optimal nutrition. Over 30% of people in home care have a sub optimal nutritional status. - Vit D, B12, Zinc, Magnesium, just to mention a few are in short supply. - Knowing that may give you the opportunity to compensate.
What else can be done? As restriction are being relaxed, it is more important than ever, to be vigilant with your personal social distances. - Even consider to wear a mask in situation like a bus or train journey.
Age Care has been a term mainly used for providing the ageing population with suitable age care facilities. However, with our forever increasing ageing population this term has become much more broad, encompassing now everything that is recognising the "needs" of anyone over the age of 50.
Obviously, there is a huge distinction to be over the age of 50, be totally fit or on the other side of the equation, be incapacitated in one way or the other.
This distinction is important, as healthy positive aging may mean for some people to be capable of anything they put their mind to.

Gardening, can anyone beat gardening as an positive ageing activity?
I don't think so, here is what you get:
An activity with a purpose, grow your own food, grow your own flowers to decorate the table you will eat the food from.
How much better can it get? Much better actually, gardening is the perfect exercise, it costs nothing and is available most of the time. It trains you to carry right, for weight lifting, it encourages stretching, bending, kneeling, digging, raking ... all your muscles will get their fair share of exercise. In case you find the activity to challenging, you simply get some raised no-dig garden beds.
It's a great activity to share, and have you ever seen a garden without a garden shed? Could be a great meeting place... while chewing some carrots :-)
What are Antioxidants?
