Dr. Sabrina Scott talks about recent research that shows human lifespan is continuously expanding and as a result people must be more proactive in tending to their extended health care needs through financial planning that takes into account potential longer lifespans.
DECATUR, GA, August 26, 2019: Dr. Sabrina Scott, co-founder of Red Feather Financial, has posted a new blog on the firm’s website entitled “Increasing Lifespan And Health Span.” Dr. Scott tells readers planning for long-term health care must become a priority as lifespans continue to increase.
Dr. Scott writes, “According to Stanford researchers, “Human lifespans are increasing by approximately three years every generation and this trend is likely to continue, at least for a while.””
“According to an article about the above-mentioned research,” Dr. Scott continues, “it was stated that, “The researchers looked at birth and death data for people above age 65 from 1960-2010. They found that the average age of death in those who live to be older than 65 increased by three years in every 25-year period, which means that people can expect to live about six years longer than their grandparents, on average.”
According to Dr. Scott, “What this information means to me is that people need to become even more proactive in preparing to extend ‘health span’ since our lifespan is naturally increasing. Part of preparing for a longer health span is having a solid financial plan that covers long-term healthcare. And, it’s important to tend to that bit of business before any signs of mental impairment become obvious.”
