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.

Food Shortage: Where Seniors Can Go for Help

In this day and age, when food seems to be so readily available and accessible, it may seem surprising that hunger is one of the more prevalent problems in society.


Having a Healthy Attitude Toward Aging

One could safely assume that, between being happy and sad, a majority of us would choose the former. After all, it’s when we’re happy that we tend to be more productive and treat others with kindness and respect.


Ways That Friendship Helps Our Brains | Comfort Keepers®

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.


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.


Dysphagia in Seniors

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


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.


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.


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.
