Don’t Let Retirement Dreams Be Dashed: Assess Your Bone Health Now

Don’t Let Retirement Dreams Be Dashed: Assess Your Bone Health Now

Financial experts will tell you it’s never too early to start saving for retirement. Many Canadians take that advice to heart, dutifully contributing to RRSPs, TFSAs and other investments. Their goal: to one day enjoy a comfortable retirement and the flexibility to do things like travel, spend time with family, pursue new hobbies, volunteer or enjoy a different pace of life.

After decades of diligent saving, many Canadians can finally clock out for the last time and enjoy the retirement they’ve been working so hard for so many years to achieve.

But what if you haven’t been investing in your bone health in the same ways you’ve been investing in your RRSPs? All that hard work can be for naught.

In fact, only 44 percent of people discharged from hospital for a hip fracture ever return home. Imagine spending a career preparing for an active retirement, only to have those carefully laid plans devastated by brittle bones caused by undiagnosed and untreated osteoporosis.

As with retirement savings, with a little bit of planning and foresight, you can invest in your bone health. Take this quiz to see if you’re at risk. Speak to your doctor about getting a 10-year fracture risk assessment. Start preparing for your retirement today – both with your finances and your health.
