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.

What Seniors Can Do to Protect Themselves from Foodborne Illness

It seems that there is a new recall on produce, poultry, dairy, or fish almost every week – not to mention reports of illness or hospitalization from contaminated food in restaurants.


The Myths and Facts of Cataracts: What Seniors Should Know

The average person will undoubtedly hear a lot of inaccurate information throughout his or her lifetime.


Managing Psoriasis Late in Life

There are certain changes to our skin that we come to expect as we age. Whether it’s looser skin, wrinkles, or spots, it’s often understood that these changes represent part our body’s natural aging process.


Immunization Awareness: What are the Recommended Vaccines for Seniors?

Research shows that a number of older adults aren’t getting the vaccines they need to help reduce their risk of serious illnesses.


Social Wellness and Its Benefits to Seniors

There’s no question that staying fit, following a healthy diet, and keeping the brain sharp, are pivotal in shaping the way we live our lives. But what about social wellness?


Senior Eye Care & Protection

It’s been said that the eyes represent the window to the soul, but when you think about it, they’re also the window into our reality – a window that we often take for granted.


What Seniors Should Know About Heat, Hydration, and Staying Safe During the Summer

From picnics and barbecues to baseball games and festivals, summer often presents numerous opportunities to spend quality time with friends and family – all under the warm sunny skies.


Senior Home Safety – Reducing the Risk of Falls

One of the greatest threats to senior wellbeing and quality of life is falling. In fact, falls represent the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries of American seniors.


Dispelling Senior Nutrition Myths

As a society, we have generally become more conscious of nutritional needs. That should come as no surprise given the amount of information that we are inundated with on a daily basis, informing us of what we should and shouldn’t eat, and what to avoid.


Senior Hydration: Why It’s Important

If someone ever asks you what you’re made of, the appropriate response should be, “water.” After all, throughout most of our lives, water makes up more than 50% of our body content – a majority of which is contained inside our cells.
