Keep Your Kidneys Healthy!


Social Wellness in Seniors

As we age, it’s important to maintain physical well-being, but often times, psychological, emotional, and social health can fall by the wayside due to increased isolation.



Occupational Therapy for Seniors

Occupational therapy is a method of helping people lead independent and productive lives by allowing them to recover or develop skills needed to complete daily tasks.


Thyroid Health for Seniors: Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention

The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped endocrine gland located in the lower front of the neck. Its function is to make thyroid hormones, which are secreted into the blood and then carried to every tissue in the body.


Copy of Cervical Cancer: What Every Senior Woman Should Consider

Cervical cancer was once the leading cause of cancer-related death for American women – but not anymore.


What Routine Eye Exams Can Reveal About Your Health

Regular eye exams are even more important as you reach your senior years. After turning 60, several eye diseases may develop that can permanently affect your vision.


Senior Nutrition: Foods that Can Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease

As we age, the risk of heart disease can increase due to a condition known as atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when the arteries begin to narrow from plaque buildup in the arterial walls, disrupting blood flow throughout the body. If blood flow stops altogether, from a blood clot, the outcome could include a heart attack or stroke.


Cancer Screenings for Seniors

As people grow older, certain medical conditions are likely to develop. This is especially true of cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death among those 65 years and older, and its occurrence increases with age.
