GoodLifeLinks

Desireable GoodLifeLinks:

We have some very good links, compliments of The Senior Source listed here for your convenience.  GoodLife is more focused on prevention, symptoms, tips, signs and new information on the varying changing aspects within the health and medical fields.  See Health, Safety and Tips section under Senior Resources.

This site is for you: the Seniors and their adult children-the Boomers-and others who assist aging adults in many parts of the transition process.  If you know of an exceptional site we should consider listing here, please email us. For example, two of our favorite sites, not listed below, are:

http://www.theseniorsource.org/pages/resource.html 

www.mayoclinic.com 

Mayo clinic gives the definition, the symptoms and the description of many diseases or health issues to educate all family members. We wish we could have provided the information here, but you will need to go to their site for more information that interests you. 

We hope GoodLife's website and our "Health, Safety and Tips" page will help people become aware of how to possibly deter certain health issues or accidents.
