In our daily lives, we invest in good surroundings, good cars, good food, good clothes, and so on. Good health is more difficult, especially for a person with a chronic health issue. Sometimes the reason is financial; sometimes it’s just poor choices. There are temptations galore for enticing, rich foods, and a thousand fun ways to spend time sitting in front of the television or a computer instead of actively living. Making good food choices is the first step – portion sizes as well as quality. Choose movement over sloth as often as possible. Good home care for healthy living is an important step. Choosing good home care enables a person with ongoing health problems to stay healthy and independent for the longest possible time. It’s not a good idea to wait until a person weakens to get assistance. A small investment now stretches active living farther into the future. It’s all about choices: investing now in order to obtain better and longer health returns. It’s called ‘paying it forward’.
