Senior Health & Wellbeing
Five Signs of Senior Stress
Stress is a common factor in life. Children experience stress from school, new social situations and simply growing up. Adults feel the stress of working, paying bills, raising kids and maintaining households.
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.
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.
The Importance of Maintaining Healthy Family Relationships
Caregiving for a family member can be pleasing and challenging. A strong family unit and support system is essential when caring for a senior loved one.
Cold Weather Falls are Preventable
1.6 million older adults go to the emergency room each year due to a fall. There are a variety of ways to prevent a loved one from a serious injury during winter such as encouraging an exercise program year round.
