I would like to take a moment to tell you why I, Grandma Betty, developed this site with you in mind. Why GrandmaBetty.com will save you time, frustration and aggravation. We all have enough aggravation. The Internet should make you more productive.
First of all I am a real life Grandmother and my name really is Betty - thus - GrandmaBetty.com. In February of 1998 the company I was working for moved. I was not able to make the daily commute to the new location so I effectively was forced into retirement at the young age of 68. Being a relatively youthful person who still wanted to contribute to society I sought out a way to add value to people’s lives.To read the complete story please click here, GrandmaBetty Story, or if you’re looking for any specific service and product visit GrandmaBetty.com, the most comprehensive source of information for boomers and seniors.

Healthy Midlife came about when two couples met over dinner and started to discuss the challenges we’ve experienced since entering midlife. Our personal stories seemed to mirror much of what we hear in the media.
Between the four of us, we had a clichéd checklist of health related issues: Weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol. Midlife crisis and depression also had visited some of our group.
