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.

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.


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.


Seniors and the Road to Quality Sleep

he older we get, the harder it becomes to get a good night’s sleep. Beginning in our late 20s, there’s a steep decline in the amount of deep sleep we get each night – and by the time we reach 50, that amount is reduced by more than half.


Seniors and Blood Pressure Management

It may be surprising to realize that nearly half of all U.S. adults have high blood pressure (or hypertension).


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.


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.


Stress Management for Seniors

It is important to take charge of stress management for your aging loved one. Stress can still resonate within seniors even if they are retired and do not have to worry about day-to-day job duties


Obesity Risks

At some point within the last few years, you may have seen charts and statistics showing the United States as being one of the most obese countries in the world.


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.
