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.

Some Medications Affect Seniors' Appetite and Nutrition

As seniors take more medications, they run an increased risk of harmful drug interactions.


Acetaminophen Toxicity: Monitoring Senior Health

The availability and usage of acetaminophen can be dangerous for seniors if it is not monitored.


Health Screenings You Need as a Senior

As men and women alike grow older, health screenings become important for seniors to have. Some of these tests are well known but some may not be. This is a compiled list of screenings as well as immunizations that seniors need.


Seniors and Medications

Medication mismanagement can be minimal or extreme. Forgetting to take medication can cause obvious problems but may not be of great concern if it does not happen often.


Drinking Alcohol as We Age

As we age, drinking alcohol can be more problematic than pleasurable for many reasons that we might not readily even recognize.


Recognition and Prevention of Cardiovascular Trouble

As we age, our bodies change. What is normal? What is not? In this article, we look at the cardiovascular system to see how it ages.


Bruising As You Age

Do you as a caregiver have questions about what causes bruising and worry about the effects of bruising on your senior loved one?


Seniors and Grief: Coping With Loss During The Holidays

Many seniors feel they have to pretend all is well during the holidays for the sake of others. But it's important to set aside time to grieve, ask for help if you need it, and forego traditions that are just too hard since your loved one passed.


Helping Seniors Cope with the Loss of a Spouse

Bereavement can have a devastating impact on the immune systems of seniors, and may explain why many older spouses soon die after the loss of their loved ones.


Controlling Sweet and Salty Cravings in Seniors

The tongue's taste buds detect four tastes: sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. As we get older, the fewer taste buds we have and the less sensitive they become.
