LONGER LIFE 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

Rumor, or a study in the UK rather, has it that the secret to a longer life is exercise, eating better, moderate drinking and NO SMOKING. Really? Not at all surprised to read that – but the interesting part of the study was that someone doing all of those things, lived on average 14 years longer! So if these are important factors to quality and quantity of life, how are long term care facilities incorporating exercise, healthy food etc into the lives of their residents? Anyone know of any examples, I would love to learn about them. Sadly, the facilities I see don’t often take the time or the money to treat a “resident” as I wish they could!
