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.

Summer Skin Protection for Seniors

Taking good care of your skin has its cosmetic benefits, but more importantly it also plays a large role in overall health, especially for seniors. As we age, the summer season can leave us vulnerable to its harmful effects.


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.


Exercises to Keep Seniors Fit

You're never "too old" to exercise! It's a necessary part of maintaining good health at any age.


Article:Falls:High Costs and Steeper Risks

Each year, one third of seniors aged 65 or older suffers a fall. While falling may seem a rather benign occurrence for most young and not-so-young people, the effects on older seniors can often be devastating financially and physically


Changing Sleep Patterns as We Age

As we age we often experience normal changes in our sleeping patterns. But disturbed sleep, waking up tired every day and other symptoms of insomnia are not a normal part of aging.


Health Impacts of Stressful Living

Stress can have negative health impacts on people of any age, but as people get older the effect stress has on the system can cause quite a few more problems than it does for younger people.


Weight Struggles Common for Senior Adults

A variety of factors lead to obesity in older adults: side effects of medication, a loss of muscle mass, the natural slowing down of metabolism, and continuing to eat the same foods in the same amounts as one did at a younger age.


Food Safety for Seniors: Avoiding Illness Through Proper Handling and Storage

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Senior Health reports that approximately 76 million Americans get food poisoning, or foodborne illnesses, each year, and of those about 5000 die.


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.


Healthy Aging: 5 Tips to Prevent Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can't be reversed, but further damage can be stopped with some simple lifestyle adjustments such as wearing ear protection when you mow the lawn or turning down the radio.
