Philips Lifeline recently launched its exclusive YouTube channel, which offers videos for seniors and their loved ones on topics concerning senior health, safety, and advice. You and your loved ones can watch the videos together, which may provide a good way to broach the subject of an older adult’s plans for the future, such as independent living and health concerns. It can also help educate you and your loved ones about aging safely.
