A heart attack or stroke can take more than just a physical toll — it can impact your finances as well. As a senior, your risk for both heart disease and stroke increases. For every 10 years you live after the age 55, your risk of stroke doubles. The majority of deaths from heart disease occur with people over the age of 65.*
