Information and Resources for Senior Health and Wellbeing

During a person’s advancing years, regular attention to physical and mental health becomes very important. From light exercise and proper nutrition to consistent mental stimulation, seniors, like everyone else, need an active and health-conscious lifestyle to ensure optimal physical and mental wellbeing.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Senior Health and Wellbeing and related topics.

Seniors and Blood Pressure Management

It may be surprising to realize that nearly half of all U.S. adults have high blood pressure (or hypertension).


Lyme Disease: What Seniors Should Know

Ticks. These small arachnids get to us through a behavior known as questing, in which they perch themselves on tall blades of grass or plant stems and wait for something – or someone – to brush past.


Seniors and the Road to Quality Sleep

he older we get, the harder it becomes to get a good night’s sleep. Beginning in our late 20s, there’s a steep decline in the amount of deep sleep we get each night – and by the time we reach 50, that amount is reduced by more than half.


Stress Management for Seniors

It is important to take charge of stress management for your aging loved one. Stress can still resonate within seniors even if they are retired and do not have to worry about day-to-day job duties


Loss of Appetite in Seniors

It’s common to begin losing our appetite as we age, but it’s important to understand why this happens and what you can do to ensure that your aging love one is still receiving all the proper nutrients required to stay healthy.


Low Impact Exercises for Seniors

Low-impact exercise is one of the best ways for them to not only get in their daily physical activity, but also keep their heart rate up.


Obesity Risks

At some point within the last few years, you may have seen charts and statistics showing the United States as being one of the most obese countries in the world.


Alcohol Abuse in Seniors: Knowing the Signs

It’s not uncommon to associate alcohol consumption with younger age groups, but studies show that drinking among older adults is on the rise.


Exploring Sarcoidosis

There are a number of diseases and conditions that have fully made their way into our shared lexicon, from the mild to the severe.


Managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Let’s face it, when it comes to discussing what goes on in the bathroom, most of us opt to change the subject entirely.
