Aging with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable bowel syndrome, often abbreviated as IBS, is a common disorder that can cause everything from chronic abdominal pain and bloating to diarrhea and constipation.


Occupational Therapy for Seniors

Occupational therapy is a method of helping people lead independent and productive lives by allowing them to recover or develop skills needed to complete daily tasks.


Alcohol Abuse In Seniors

It can be common for friends and family members to overlook – or completely miss – an aging loved one’s abuse of alcohol.


Seniors and Kidney Health

Physical well-being is contingent upon the health of all of our organs, and while the areas of focus for seniors may often be the heart and brain, the kidneys are just as important and should demand the same level of care and attention.


Senior Nutrition: Foods that Can Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease

As we age, the risk of heart disease can increase due to a condition known as atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when the arteries begin to narrow from plaque buildup in the arterial walls, disrupting blood flow throughout the body. If blood flow stops altogether, from a blood clot, the outcome could include a heart attack or stroke.


Colorectal Cancer: Screening and Risk Reduction for Seniors

Colorectal cancer – also referred to as colon cancer or rectal cancer – is considered the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths, for both men and women. The percentage of deaths from colorectal cancer tends to be highest for those within the 75-84 age range.


What Routine Eye Exams Can Reveal About Your Health

Regular eye exams are even more important as you reach your senior years. After turning 60, several eye diseases may develop that can permanently affect your vision.


Cancer Screenings for Seniors

As people grow older, certain medical conditions are likely to develop. This is especially true of cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death among those 65 years and older, and its occurrence increases with age.


Types of Heart Attacks

Your heart muscle needs oxygen to survive. A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced or completely cut off. This happens because coronary arteries supplying the heart muscle with blood flow can gradually become narrow from a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances that together are called plaque.


Glaucoma: What Seniors Should Know

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and result in vision loss. It is also the second leading cause of blindness.
