Paths to Healthy Aging is a workbook for readers of all backgrounds, about maintaining one's health throughout the aging process. Geriatrician Dr. Mehrdad (Mike) Ayati discusses the critical importance of nutrition and a balanced diet, mental health concerns, ways to minimize problems with increased frailty, the problem of overmedication, how to find a reliable geriatrician, and more. Black-and-white photography demonstrating simple yet recommended physical exercises complements the medically sound and practical advice in this "must-read" for anyone approaching retirement age, as well as the adult children and/or caretakers of elderly individuals. Highly recommended!
