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.

Recommended Immunizations for Seniors

Several preventable diseases can cause serious illness and even death in unvaccinated seniors.


Recovery after a Heart Attack

A heart attack, also known as acute myocardial infarction (AMI), changes the lives of both seniors and their caregivers.


Reducing Risk of Hospital Return after Total Knee Replacement

Since 1991, there has been a substantial increase in the number of senior adults receiving total knee replacements. In the United States alone, approximately 600,000 are performed annually.


Reducing the Risk of Pneumonia in Seniors

Pneumonia may be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi, and results in inflammation and decreased circulation to one or both of the lungs. As circulation to the lungs decreases, oxygen in the blood declines.


Relaxation Rituals for Older Adults


Seasonal Depression


Self-Engagement in Wellbeing Enhances Quality of Life

Ensuring senior adults are actively involved in their own health and well-being is a priority for health professionals and policy makers.


Senior Eye Care & Protection

It’s been said that the eyes represent the window to the soul, but when you think about it, they’re also the window into our reality – a window that we often take for granted.


Senior Home Safety – Reducing the Risk of Falls

One of the greatest threats to senior wellbeing and quality of life is falling. In fact, falls represent the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries of American seniors.


Senior Hydration: Why It’s Important

If someone ever asks you what you’re made of, the appropriate response should be, “water.” After all, throughout most of our lives, water makes up more than 50% of our body content – a majority of which is contained inside our cells.
