Congratulations, Massachusetts seniors! You live in the fourth healthiest state in the country, according to a new study just released by the United Health Foundation. The Senior Report—issued for the first time by the UHF—determines state rankings on the health of seniors (those age 65+) based on overall health, well-being, social and economic measures. Information from the Foundation’s site says that “34 different measures of health, ranging from smoking and obesity to ICU usage” are used to compare the health of seniors in each state.
Your father protected you when you were young. He helped you shoo away the scary monsters under the bed and chased away the tears after those endless rounds of childhood shots. More often than not, he probably put your well-being ahead of his own.
