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.

5 Major Impacts of a Well-Balanced Diet


Exercises to Keep Seniors Fit

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


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.


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.


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.


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.


Overcoming Depression

Depression can be daunting, embarrassing, and not easy to discuss. However, when properly diagnosed and treated, depression can often be successfully managed and even overcome depending on individual circumstances.


Footloose and Fancy Free: Caring for Feet as You Age

Many older adults get frequent checkups, exercise regularly, and in general try to take good care of themselves, but one aspect of their health that they (and for that matter, younger people) frequently neglect is good foot care. Foot injury, neglect, and disease are major factors contributing to mobility, or lack thereof, in older adults.


Skin Cancer and Seniors

It may not be surprising to learn that cases of skin cancer among seniors are more prevalent than in the younger population.
