Discussion Points
Use these discussion points for each question as you talk about each aspect of healthy aging with your employees.

1. Nutrition strategies to help ensure healthy aging include:

  • Eating foods from the basic food groups in healthy amounts
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Taking vitamin and mineral supplements, if necessary
  • Eating foods with sugar, fat, and cholesterol sparingly
  • Getting about 45 percent to 65 percent of daily calories from carbohydrates
  • Getting 10 percent to 35 percent of daily calories from protein

2. Physical activity requirements for healthy aging include:

  • At least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity most days of the week
  • At least 30 minutes of high-intensity activity at least 3 days a week
  • Strength training with weights or an exercise machine a few days a week

3. The appropriate schedule for medical exams depends on a trainee’s age, sex, and physical health. For the younger ones in good health, once every few years might be enough. By middle age, people should generally be getting a physical every couple of years. And once a person is over 50, he or she should be examined annually.

Trainees with diagnosed health problems should be getting regular checkups—generally every 6 or 12 months. Screening for various diseases generally depends on a person’s sex and age. Trainees should check with their doctor about such things as breast and prostate exams.

In addition to seeing the doctor, trainees should be seeing a dentist twice a year for cleanings and checkups. They should also get regular eye exams as well and have corrective lenses changed as necessary. And if they work in a noisy environment or experience hearing problems, they should have their hearing checked regularly as well.

4. Lead a discussion about medications and how they can help keep trainees healthy and improve their chances of healthy aging. Remind trainees that they should always take medications properly, following the doctor’s instructions.

5. Remind trainees that smoking cigarettes is the single most preventable cause of disease and death in the United States. People who quit smoking begin seeing the health benefits almost immediately and improve their chances of living a longer and healthier life. Moderate alcohol consumption in most cases is not deemed harmful by health professionals. However, alcohol abuse can lead to serious health conditions, including liver and heart disease.
