G’day and welcome To my website for Seniors sixty plus…

MaddyEven if you are still sixty “minus” a year or two, please feel free to join us at Maddy at Home, your home from home on the internet, where we will be commenting, reviewing, venting, whingeing, remarking and generally yacking on about life after sixty. Like many of you, I never believed I would get here, especially not so quickly. Yet here I am . . .

In the coming weeks, months and years, we will discuss the many changes that have taken place over the course of our lifetime. How have we have dealt with them? And how do we expect to benefit from changes that may happen in the future? As well, we will meet with other retirees from around the world who will be our guests from time to time. Visit my Blog HERE.

Friends online

I hope you will sign up and join our group of friends. We will liberally intersperse our chat with humor, positive thinking and strategies for becoming more successful at this “living” business. You’d think we would have got the hang of it by now, but we always seem to need a little bit of help as we face new challenges, especially now we are growing older. 

Making life easier

My website exists to bring you some ideas to help you plan your life ahead as you “age in place”. For many of you, this will entail making decisions about where to live, how to live and how to age with dignity and grace. Looking at the bigger picture, we can all help each other to maintain our health and happiness in these later years.

My focus is to provide information and resources that will help to make life more enjoyable in retirement. Like it or not, many of us will have to slow down a little bit. We may even need outside help. Are there some activities that we can still participate in? What are our capabilities? How can we continue to do the things that make us happy? No matter what disabilities, ailments or troubles you may be dealing with, I hope that you will be able to find some online support here. Let’s make life easier for each other whenever we can.

We all need to keep up our social connections, and make new ones as well. Socializing, whether in our neighborhoods or online, will help us to stay interested in life. Loneliness and isolation can see older people become bored, depressed, and unable to care for themselves. Engaging with others helps us to stay independent for as long as possible. Try my Friday’s in the future series of posts which take a look at some of the latest developments that might help us as we get older. And don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the posts. That is how we get to know each other, over time, in the “Blogosphere”.

“Old age is not for sissies” – these guys are the survivors!

I did find some other great Senior blogs along my way which I highly recommend, and you can find them on our Friends page

If you’re feeling a little bit nostalgic for times gone by, take a trip through memory lane with my Memories category.

And of course don’t forget about your health – I’ve added some pages with information about the most common diseases and conditions in the aging population. However, be sure to note – no medical advice, I am not a doctor. Please make sure you see your doctor if you have any of the symptoms mentioned in the info-graphics or linked websites and blogs.

Help is at hand

There is a world of discovery on our Resources page. There you will find links to some other very useful websites.  I am still developing these resources, so if you know of a good website that would be helpful to other subscribers, please visit my  Contact Me tab and let me know about it.

The rest is just for fun, so enjoy!

Thanks for dropping by – don’t be a stranger, sign up in the box at the bottom of this page to make sure that you don’t lose my address.

Stay safe, take care and come back soon!
