What Could Be the Secret to a Long Life?
This month, in conjunction with National Older American’s Month, Stein Assisted Living will celebrate seven individuals who are all centenarians — individuals who have lived to at least 100 years old, more than 20 years longer than the average life span.

Words of Wisdom
With age comes insight. “To live to 100, live with a clear conscience and treat others as you would like to be treated,” says Stein resident Myrtle Levy, adding, “and don’t forget to exercise and have some chutzpah!” Mickie Mintz, another Stein centenarian at 101 years old, suggests that “someone up there is taking care of me!” and stresses the importance of having good relationships with family.

Family, friends and staff have learned life lessons from these older members of the community, and have learned how to best support them in return. Stein resident Roz Levy offers a piece advice to take to heart: “To live a long life, eat your fruits and vegetables. Try to get along with everyone. Stay around happy people and stay away from people and things that make you unhappy.” Bobby Rosenstrauss suggests, “Live a quiet life, and when something bad happens, try your best to smile.”

Celebrating Our Centenarians
At Stein Assisted Living, the goal is to help residents remain as independent as possible in this phase of life. Throughout our community we celebrate our centenarians and the life advice they share that can be inspiring for all ages. As Stein resident Faye Bradus so wisely counsels, “Make the most of each day. Enjoy the blessings of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren — they will sustain you.”
