Aging is a lifelong process that includes several transitions along the way. Younger people make difficult decisions after their teen years on how to begin their transition into adulthood. Young adult’s transition to middle age with varying paths to take. Older adult’s transition to retirement and then later years of life. Planning out your life is a good start to ensure you provide yourself an opportunity for healthy aging. MSU Extension’s mission is to provide education and research-based programs to assist people with a healthy transition across the lifespan.
