GET UPDATES FROM Lifetime Daily
 
Over time, there have been fundamental changes in the way we age.

Age is no longer determined solely by genetic factors, but by how well we live our lives: through exercise, diet and attitude. People are not only living longer; they’re wanting to live better.

To date, however, there has been no comprehensive resource to meet the needs of the burgeoning 55+ population. Until now.

Lifetime Daily was founded by Rainer Müller and Louisa Flinn, who have decades of experience in retirement living, finance, health and housing, and a passion for helping people 55+ live their lives to the fullest.

While creating the Lifetime Daily concept, we conducted extensive research and development to determine the issues most relevant to mature adults. As the idea grew, we brought together a group of colleagues and experts – active aging specialists, medical practitioners, writers and website developers – with the aim of creating a comprehensive online publication that helps people 55+ get quality, trustworthy information on active aging.

Launched in June 2016, Lifetime Daily provides engaging, informative articles on specific topics, including health and wellness, medical trends, mental agility, financial comfort, eating well and enhanced lifestyles. We carefully curate our stories to provide relevant, timely information and fresh perspectives, created by journalists and practitioners who are experts in their fields.

We believe that as we grow older, life should keep getting better. Lifetime Daily was created to help you do just that.
