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.

Skin Cancer and Seniors

It may not be surprising to learn that cases of skin cancer among seniors are more prevalent than in the younger population.


The Signs of Arthritis

Seniors and Grief: Coping With Loss During The Holidays
