Information and Resources for Senior Health and Wellbeing

Seniors Living With Chronic Pain

Seniors are more vulnerable than the average person to chronic pain.


Speaking in Tongues: Facts about Aphasias

Self-Engagement in Wellbeing Enhances Quality of Life

Ensuring senior adults are actively involved in their own health and well-being is a priority for health professionals and policy makers.


Physical Activity Helps Manage Chronic Conditions

Managing Mobility Problems in Seniors

Problems associated with aging can affect a person’s ability to move around, or mobility.


Aging Well and Staying Healthy

The secret to aging well isn’t really a secret: stay active, eat well, and avoid those bad habits that can make you ill and cut years from your life. Easy, right? In theory, yes, but in practice these simple tenets are difficult for many people to adhere to.


Heart-Healthy Foods?

The concept that particular foods promote healthier hearts is not new. It is a fact that a well-balanced nutritional diet contributes to good health throughout a lifetime.


Depression in Older Adults

Depression is a common problem among older adults, but it is NOT a normal part of aging. In fact, studies show that most seniors feel satisfied with their lives, despite having more illnesses or physical problems.


Combating PTSD during Heart Recovery
