Generations columnist for The Herald-Palladium

Walks are great. You not only get exercise, but restlessness and worries seem to fade, and often you run into friends for delightful little chats.

On a recent walk I crossed paths with a friend who complimented the Area Agency on Aging on recent events, and also mentioned he was about to turn 65. He’d started getting a lot of mail from Medicare and varied insurance companies and joked that maybe he should see a counselor to sort it out. My quick reply? Absolutely he should!
