Kaye Publishes ‘A Man’s Guide to Healthy Aging’

Lenard Kaye, director of the University of Maine Center on Aging and professor in the UMaine School of Social Work, and Edward H. Thompson Jr., have published “A Man’s Guide to Healthy Aging: Stay Smart, Strong, and Active.” The Johns Hopkins University Press publication provides a comprehensive guide to healthy aging from a man’s perspective offered by the authors in collaboration with other medical experts. The book offers information in four parts. “Managing Our Lives” describes the actions men can take to stay healthy; “Mind and Body” considers how physical health and state of mind are connected; “Bodily Health” examines how body systems function and what changes may occur as men age; and “Living with Others” shows the importance of interacting with friends and family. The authors describe the book as helping men reinvent themselves by managing their health, creating new careers and contributing their skills and experiences to their communities. The book is available on Amazon.
