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.

Recovery after a Heart Attack

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


9 Steps that Can Help with Cancer Prevention

The most significant risk factor for the development of cancer is aging; however, the risk of many types of cancer can be drastically reduced by focusing on prevention steps.


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.


Diabetes Prevention and Care for Seniors

Half of all Americans age 65 or older have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.


Your Bones Will Thank You

Your bones are alive—they are living tissue. When we are young and growing, our bodies break down the old bone and replace it with new bone. Around age 30, our bone mass stops increasing and more bone breaks down than is being replaced.


Preparing for Joint Replacement Surgery

Joint replacement is a serious decision for any family. Many factors can affect the recovery period, and each of these factors requires energy and dedication.


Maintaining a Healthy Mouth

Just 60 years ago, it was often presumed that older people would lose their permanent teeth as part of the aging process. Today, we know that maintaining a healthy mouth is a valuable exercise and keeping permanent teeth is a realistic expectation for many of us.


Dietary Changes in Seniors: A Colorful Plate is Key

Eating well and understanding nutrition is important at any age. As we grow older, our physical health and outlook on life can be affected by what we eat.


Dietary Changes as We Age

Did you know that every year over the age of 40, our metabolism slows? Though our nutritional requirements stay almost the same as younger adults, our energy needs decrease.


Immunizations Save Senior Lives

One of the best ways for families to help senior loved ones stay healthy is to make sure they are vaccinated against common, preventable diseases. Respiratory diseases, such as pneumonia and influenza, are the eighth leading cause of death among the older population and can be prevented with vaccinations.
