senior-ladies.jpgLaugh lines. If you're over the age of 65, you've probably earned a few. Should you view them as a sign to slow down? Or, should you embrace each and every one?

We all know someone who is over the age of 65 and living life to the fullest. It may be your mom who is always up for a game of hide-and-seek with her grandchildren, or your uncle who travels the world.

So, what does a senior citizen look like in today's world?

Soon, the first of over 75 million baby boomers will begin to earn senior citizen status. On the next episode of HealthSmart we'll talk to baby boomers about the future. Are they planning to slow down? How can they stay sharp as they age? What should they know about Medicare?

Join us for HealthSmart, as we explore Aging in America.
