Senior Health & Wellbeing

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.

Social Wellness in Seniors

As we age, it’s important to maintain physical well-being, but often times, psychological, emotional, and social health can fall by the wayside due to increased isolation.


HIV in the Senior Population

It is not uncommon to think of HIV as something that primarily affects those that are younger – and that, consequently, it is of less concern as we age.


Herbal Supplements and Prescription Medications: What Seniors Should Know

Think of any condition, disease, or ailment. The odds are pretty high that at least one type of prescription medication exists for it.


The Key to Maintaining Brain Health Late in Life

When it comes to exploring the brain, it would seem that with each breakthrough the scientific community makes, new unprecedented questions arise.


Prostate Cancer: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Based on year-over-year trends, the American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017, there will be 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer, and approximately 26,730 deaths.


Strokes: Signs, Rehabilitation, and Risk Reduction

When talking about strokes, many refer to what’s known as an ischemic stroke. Accounting for nearly 80% of all strokes, an ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel (leading to the brain) becomes blocked, cutting off blood flow to certain parts of the brain.


Skin Cancer in Seniors: Development, Identification, and Risk Reduction

Skin cancer is consistently reported to be the most common form of cancer in the United States, affecting more than one million people every year – many of whom are 65 years of age or older.


Food Allergies: Detection and Management for Seniors

In theory, it can be easy to confuse food intolerance for a food allergy. The former primarily involves the digestive system and its inability to properly break down certain foods.


Low-Impact Exercises for Seniors

Staying physically active is important at every stage of our lives, but as we grow older, it becomes especially vital. Engaging in the recommended daily amount of moderate activity (at least 30 minutes) has numerous long-term benefits, but it can also improve overall health for those with certain conditions and disabilities.


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.
