Based on the positive feedback I heard about the assessment tool in my book about healthy aging, Right Place, Right Time, I have created an online version with a few simple questions to help you discover whether the place you live is the best fit for today and into the future.You will be presented with a series of statements covering five dimensions of life: Place, Purpose, Social Connection, Physical Well-Being, and Financial Well-Being. For each statement, please indicate on a scale of 1 to 5 how much you agree or disagree.
Place encompasses country, region, state, metropolitan area, neighborhood, and physical dwelling. Place directly and indirectly impacts one's well-being.
People with an articulated purpose, particularly in regard to a cause greater than themselves, live longer and healthier lives. Purpose is one of the best predictors of happiness and people with a sense of purpose are 2.4 times less likely to develop Alzheimer's.
A key part of successful aging is developing and maintaining relationships. Loneliness has been found to be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and can increase the risk of premature death by as much as 30%.
Exercise has been shown to have an impact on our physical well-being in a plethora of ways, from strengthening muscles to improving heart conditions to sharpening minds. Our diet and sleeping patterns can matter, too.
Being financially prepared for a long life is critical. Living longer introduces uncertain costs, especially around healthcare. For example, 1 out of 3 people 65 and older may never need long-term care support, but 20% will need it for more than five years.
