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.

Loss of Appetite in Seniors

It’s common to begin losing our appetite as we age, but it’s important to understand why this happens and what you can do to ensure that your aging love one is still receiving all the proper nutrients required to stay healthy.


Low Impact Exercises for Seniors

Low-impact exercise is one of the best ways for them to not only get in their daily physical activity, but also keep their heart rate up.


Low-Impact Exercises for Seniors

Staying physically active is important at every stage of our lives, but as we grow older, it becomes especially vital. Engaging in the recommended daily amount of moderate activity (at least 30 minutes) has numerous long-term benefits, but it can also improve overall health for those with certain conditions and disabilities.


Lyme Disease: What Seniors Should Know

Ticks. These small arachnids get to us through a behavior known as questing, in which they perch themselves on tall blades of grass or plant stems and wait for something – or someone – to brush past.


Maintaining a Healthy Mouth

Just 60 years ago, it was often presumed that older people would lose their permanent teeth as part of the aging process. Today, we know that maintaining a healthy mouth is a valuable exercise and keeping permanent teeth is a realistic expectation for many of us.


Malnutrition: A Serious Concern for Seniors

Most people associate malnutrition with third world countries, but it's also a danger for seniors, and more prevalent among older Americans than we realize.


Manage Parkinson’s with Stress Reduction

There is ample evidence that stress worsens symptoms of Parkinson’s disease so stress management is essential for seniors with Parkinson’s to maintain their quality of life.


Managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Let’s face it, when it comes to discussing what goes on in the bathroom, most of us opt to change the subject entirely.


Managing Mobility Problems in Seniors

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


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.
