Living and Aging Well

Dr. Stacie Stephenson, Leading Lifestyle Medicine Doctor and Vibrant Doc Founder, Launches New Book

In a world where so much of the health and wellness conversation is fragmented and myopic, focusing on the symptoms of poor health instead of the underlying causes, Dr. Stacie Stephenson stands out for her “whole person” approach.

There may come a time when you or someone you care about needs help at home. One choice is to hire a private caregiver and agree on hours and a price.

To comply with labor laws and alleviate financial and safety risks, it is best to weigh the benefits of hiring a licensed home care agency over hiring an independent caregiver.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected. Happy life events—marriage, a new child/grandchild, starting a business—evoke hope for the future.

Relying solely on a spouse’s current income can present a high level of risk.

Estate planning is an important process that every adult should address, regardless of net worth.

A comprehensive estate plan that is tailored to your wishes and personal circumstances will provide peace of mind to you and your family.

The real danger we see so often is the caregiver losing sight of self-care.

Choose to act when dealing with the changes in your life.​

By choosing to take action, change is manageable, and we enable ourselves to work through tough times.
