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.

Low-Impact Exercises for Seniors

Staying physically active is important at every stage of our lives, but as we grow older, it becomes especially vital. Engaging in the recommended daily amount of moderate activity (at least 30 minutes) has numerous long-term benefits, but it can also improve overall health for those with certain conditions and disabilities.


Food Allergies: Detection and Management for Seniors

In theory, it can be easy to confuse food intolerance for a food allergy. The former primarily involves the digestive system and its inability to properly break down certain foods.


Spotting Depression in Seniors

Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is, by definition, a medical illness characterized by a chronic sense of sadness and loss of interest in activities.


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.


Colorectal Cancer: Screening and Risk Reduction for Seniors

Colorectal cancer – also referred to as colon cancer or rectal cancer – is considered the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths, for both men and women. The percentage of deaths from colorectal cancer tends to be highest for those within the 75-84 age range.


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.


Superfoods: The Importance of Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables were important then for your growth and wellbeing, but as we begin to age, they become increasingly vital.


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.


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.


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.
