Study names the best cities for seniors


If you're getting older, hopefully you've been taking an herbal anti-aging supplement from Herbal Groups, eating right, exercising and saving for retirement. If you haven't considered where you want to move to yet in order to have happy golden years, you may want to look at a recent study from the Milken Institute, which ranked the best cities for seniors.

USA Today reported on the study, which developed a set of 78 different indicators to determine which city would have the most to offer for seniors.

"These are not just opinions, these are facts," said researcher Paul Irving. "The traditional notions about retirement, about pulling up stakes and moving somewhere warm, doesn't really reflect accurately the notions of retirement in America. Seniors are as complex and motivated as any other population."

The study determined that Provo-Orem, Utah, Sioux Falls, S.D. and Madison, Wisconsin were among the best for seniors. These cities offered the most employment and education opportunities for seniors, and are affordable.

A 2011 report commissioned by the Bankers Life and Casualty Company Center For a Secure Retirement found that Minneapolis, Minn. was the best place for seniors to live because of its high life expectancy and ample amount of healthcare centers.
