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 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.


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.


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.


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.


Ways That Friendship Helps Our Brains | Comfort Keepers®

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


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.


Alcohol Abuse In Seniors

It can be common for friends and family members to overlook – or completely miss – an aging loved one’s abuse of alcohol.


Dysphagia in Seniors

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


Skin Cancer in Seniors: Development, Identification, and Risk Reduction

Skin cancer is consistently reported to be the most common form of cancer in the United States, affecting more than one million people every year – many of whom are 65 years of age or older.
