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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aging’s Impact on Nutrition & Reducing the Risk of Malnutrition

Think, for instance, of all the times you’ve settled for a bagel and a cup of coffee for breakfast, when you know full well that you really should have a more well-rounded meal to start your day.

Protecting the Liver as We Age

The liver is one of the body’s true powerhouses – an organ that performs a staggering number of important functions simultaneously. Not only does it convert nutrients into bile, a substance that helps with the digestion process, it also produces amino acids that play a key role in fighting infections.

Traumatic Brain Injuries and Fall Prevention

As we develop, our bodies adapt and we tend to stay upright a majority of the time, without having to think much about it. It’s not until we reach older age that the odds of falling become greater, and the injuries, in turn, become much more severe.

Like a member of our own family.

That's how we treat every person in our care. Our caregivers have a passion for
what they do, and are carefully selected and trained to meet your unique needs.
That's the Comfort Keepers difference.
