be.group, one of the nation's largest nonprofit providers of senior living communities, has launched a new website geared at providing tips and resources for aging adults, families and caregivers. MySilverAge.com is a robust collection of articles, guides and other resources encompassing relationships, healthy aging, retirement, senior living, entertainment and much more."We are excited to be able to offer this important resource to serve the informational needs of older adults and their families," says John H. Cochrane III, be.group's president and CEO, in a press release issued by the company. "Every day, we're inspired by seniors living amazing, rich lives. Our commitment is to grow this site over time and open a window on a positive side of aging we believe needs to be shared."
A realistic, yet enthusiastic, approach to aging
MySilverAge.com provides expert-written content and commentary on a wide range of lifestyle and health considerations facing today's older generation. The site has a strong positive vibe, with a clear emphasis on living life to the fullest--regardless of age. Through videos, frequently-asked questions, blogs and social media networks, older adults and those who care for them can connect with others undergoing the same phase of life, facing the same challenges and experiencing the same joy that life has to offer.
The website's About Us page outlines their mission clearly: "MySilverAge is not about denying your age. It’s about living the life you want to live, regardless of age. It’s about living long and living well. It’s about putting the wisdom and clarity that comes with age into action—and doing all of the things you dream of doing. It’s about truly being yourself." It's not about being delusional about the realities of aging, but facing those realities with a positive attitude and an enthusiastic approach that helps many seniors take the downsides of aging in stride, while maximizing those joyous experiences that make life worth living.

It's not all about the seniors, either. Caregivers will find MySilverAge.com a valuable source of information on navigating the obstacles that come with balancing children, aging parents, careers and life overall.
