The Respiratory System: Age-Related Changes & COPD

The respiratory system, like many of the other human systems (e.g., cardiovascular, digestive), is a wondrously complex and sophisticated arrangement of organs working together to maintain homeostasis.


Dysphagia in Seniors

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in physical and emotional well-being at every point in life.


Seniors and Immunizations

Protection against serious infectious diseases is not just for children or infants. In many ways, immunization is more vital 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.


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.


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.


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.
