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.

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.


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.


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.


Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD): What Seniors Should Know

Everyone knows of the iris and cornea. But what about the macula? Though it’s one of the smallest parts of the eye (5mm in diameter), the macula plays a significant role in the vision needed to read, write, and even recognize faces.


Tips for Reducing the Risk of Heart Disease

Long ago, Egyptians believed that the heart was the body’s control center. From their perspective, the organ acted as a centralized point of distribution for the body’s nutrients, while also serving as the source for emotion and cognition.


Eating Disorders in the Elderly

For many years, it was suggested that eating disorders existed almost exclusively with younger age groups, such as adolescents and teenagers.


Cervical Cancer: Risks for Older Adults and Best Practices

Cancer of the cervix, or cervical cancer, was once listed as one of the most common causes of cancer death among women.
