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.

The Importance of Staying Hydrated

Elderly adults are one of the most at risk groups for dehydration. Signs and symptoms of dehydration can be virtually identical to senile dementia symptoms, age dementia symptoms and Alzheimers symptoms.

Seniors and Grief: Coping With Loss During The Holidays

Many seniors feel they have to pretend all is well during the holidays for the sake of others. But it's important to set aside time to grieve, ask for help if you need it, and forego traditions that are just too hard since your loved one passed.

Health Screenings You Need as a Senior

As men and women alike grow older, health screenings become important for seniors to have. Some of these tests are well known but some may not be. This is a compiled list of screenings as well as immunizations that seniors need.

The Signs of Arthritis

Did you know that there are more than 100 types of arthritis? The most common forms that affect people over the age of 65 are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout.

Skin Cancer and Seniors

It may not be surprising to learn that cases of skin cancer among seniors are more prevalent than in the younger population.

The Importance of Maintaining Healthy Family Relationships

Caregiving for a family member can be pleasing and challenging. A strong family unit and support system is essential when caring for a senior loved one.

Hypertension and Stroke: Top 10 Risk Factors

Did you know that strokes rank as the fourth leading cause of death in America and are also considered one of the main causes of long-term disability?

The Relationship Between Diet and Fatigue

The old adage "you are what you eat" is well known, but have you ever really thought about what it means?

Summer Skin Protection for Seniors

Taking good care of your skin has its cosmetic benefits, but more importantly it also plays a large role in overall health, especially for seniors. As we age, the summer season can leave us vulnerable to its harmful effects.

Seniors and Medications

Medication mismanagement can be minimal or extreme. Forgetting to take medication can cause obvious problems but may not be of great concern if it does not happen often.
