Menopause and Women’s Midlife Transitions

Today women can expect to live one third of their lives after menopause. Postmenopausal women make up the fastest growing segment of the population with the average woman now living into her mid-80ʼs. Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle and child-bearing years. While it’s a natural transition for women into healthy aging, a wide range of symptoms may affect both physical and emotional health. At Riverwood Healthcare Center, we offer personalized care for women’s midlife transitions.
