Health Conditions | Aging

Getting older can be a natural process but can also present challenges. How can you age gracefully? One way is by knowing how to prevent common problems associated with aging. Maggie Kuhn, an activist for elders’ rights, said, “Old age is not a disease—it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.” The information in this section is geared toward helping you to survive and thrive throughout the years.

Annual wellness exams are more important as we grow older. Wellness exams include a comprehensive assessment of body systems, screening physical exam, personalized additional screenings and address prevention for age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis, diabetes and arthritis. Call 206.834.4100 to schedule an appointment and ask about senior discounts on wellness exams and other appointments.
