The Mission of Maya and Methuselah
A Medical Guide for Aging in Place
by Karen Marie Humphreys

The Mission of Maya and Methuselah guides readers through a practical and well-researched program that will prepare them for their final fifteen to twenty years of life. Geared to people in their forties and older, the preparation focuses on fitness, functionality, and financial health. Dr. Karen Humphreys is an engaging, knowledgeable partner on your journey to better health in your senior years. Her rich background in the medical field positions her to speak with credibility on issues surrounding geriatric care, preventative healthcare, financial planning, and even end-of-life care. She takes a holistic approach, balancing physical wellbeing with the need for financial and social health. Dr. Humphreys has witnessed the devastating impact of frailty on individuals and the healthcare system, and she understands that openings in long-term care and assisted living homes won’t keep up with the demand over the next twenty years. Now more than ever, it’s critical that our aging population remains strong, healthy, and independent. Full of clear instructions, objective advice, and meaningful encouragement, The Mission of Maya and Methuselah is a must-read for everyone who wants to remain healthy and self-sufficient for as long as possible..

Dr. Karen Humphreys has worked in the healthcare system for over four decades as a nurse, educator, physician, and adult medical specialist. She currently lives on Vancouver Island and continues to work as an Internal Medicine specialist. Most days, she is involved with seniors care in Victoria, encouraging, promoting and assisting clients and their families to fulfill a client’s desire to age in place. Diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, Dr. Humphreys knows first-hand the importance of prioritizing personal health and wellness, and she brings that knowledge to her first book, The Mission of Maya and Methuselah. In her spare time, Dr. Humphreys enjoys gardening, walking, and painting.
