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.

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.


Dietary Changes in Seniors: A Colorful Plate is Key

Eating well and understanding nutrition is important at any age. As we grow older, our physical health and outlook on life can be affected by what we eat.


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.


Drinking Alcohol as We Age

As we age, drinking alcohol can be more problematic than pleasurable for many reasons that we might not readily even recognize.


Drug Abuse Rising Among Seniors?

Drug abuse in the senior population is on the rise. Shocking? Yes. After all, no one thinks of grandma, grandpa and drug abuse in the same thought.


Dysphagia in Seniors

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in physical and emotional well-being at every point in life.


Early Treatment Can Save Hearing

Hearing loss is the third most common chronic condition affecting older adults today. Approximately one third of seniors aged 65 to 74 and one half of seniors 75 and over experience a decline in hearing.


Eat Well, Live Well, Be Well

Good nutrition and regular physical activity in healthy senior adults helps maintain wellbeing.


Eating Disorders in the Elderly

For many years, it was suggested that eating disorders existed almost exclusively with younger age groups, such as adolescents and teenagers.
