St. Luke’s Doctor Gives Advice on Senior Health & Fitness Day

DULUTH, Minn. – Wednesday, May 30 is Senior Health and Fitness Day.

It’s a day to remind all it’s always the right time to get active.

Dr. Addie Licari, a St. Luke’s Family Practice Physician, stopped by FOX 21 to give tips about staying on top of your health in your later years.

  • Stay active and keep the “I’m gonna do it when I retire” promises.
  • Get socially engaged – volunteer, pick up a fun part-time job, connect with friends.
  • Figure your healthcare finances out beforehand.
  • Get on the same page with your partner regarding what you want your lifestyle to be.
  • See your doctor annually, ask questions, request known covered medical tests and services prior to a big life change such as a move or retirement.
  • Be your own advocate. Do your research on medical covered services and costs.  Get to know your physician’s office business staff and use them as a resource.
