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.

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.


Obesity Risks

At some point within the last few years, you may have seen charts and statistics showing the United States as being one of the most obese countries in the world.


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.


Tips for Reducing the Risk of Heart Disease

Long ago, Egyptians believed that the heart was the body’s control center. From their perspective, the organ acted as a centralized point of distribution for the body’s nutrients, while also serving as the source for emotion and cognition.


Understanding Breast Cancer

As of 2017, there are over 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States, and awareness of breast cancer has improved leaps and bounds over the past few decades, with numerous organizations and foundations working tirelessly to provide education and community support.


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.


Low Impact Exercises for Seniors

Low-impact exercise is one of the best ways for them to not only get in their daily physical activity, but also keep their heart rate up.


Senior Hydration: Why It’s Important

If someone ever asks you what you’re made of, the appropriate response should be, “water.” After all, throughout most of our lives, water makes up more than 50% of our body content – a majority of which is contained inside our cells.


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.
