Try Keeping Up With this Senior

Home Caregivers in Solana Beach Marvel at Local Senior’s Achievements

If you live in the greater San Diego area, there’s a chance you have heard of Alan Mindell. In recent years, he has accomplished a list of things that amazes seniors, their families, and their home caregivers. In Solana Beach, Mindell’s adopted home town, you might find him writing a new novel, taking the stage for a motivational speech, or winning another gold medal in the San Diego Senior Olympics.

Staying Busy

Calling Alan Mindell busy is somewhat of an understatement. Building a successful senior bus tour company wasn’t enough for him; after selling the company he took up a dream that he had set aside many years ago. Shortly after his milestone 70th birthday, he got his first novel published. Writing isn’t the most active occupation, so Mindell complements that activity with another lifelong interest: running. In fact, he is so athletic that he has won six gold medals in the San Diego Senior Olympics

How Does He Do It?

Mr. Mindell has, understandably, become a popular motivational speaker in the San Diego area. He encourages people to keep pursuing their dreams, even if their fulfillment takes some time. His high levels of both mental and physical activity are an inspiration to local elderly folks who might be tempted to take things easy and allow their strength to fade away.

Home Caregivers in San Diego County Try to Keep Up

Even young, energetic home caregivers in San Diego County might have a hard time keeping up with Mr. Mindell as he trains for the next Senior Olympics and travels to his various speaking engagements. His good health and exciting life illustrate what geriatric experts say: Seniors who maintain an active lifestyle are able to ward off mental and physical decline much longer than most people think possible!
