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.


Diabetic Eye Diseases

Diabetes is something that affects many aging adults. In fact, the American Diabetes Association estimates that nearly 25% of Americans over the age of 60 have diabetes – with type 2 being the most common.


Alcohol Abuse in Seniors: Knowing the Signs

It’s not uncommon to associate alcohol consumption with younger age groups, but studies show that drinking among older adults is on the rise.


Cervical Cancer: Risks for Older Adults and Best Practices

Cancer of the cervix, or cervical cancer, was once listed as one of the most common causes of cancer death among women.


Food Shortage: Where Seniors Can Go for Help

In this day and age, when food seems to be so readily available and accessible, it may seem surprising that hunger is one of the more prevalent problems in society.


Shingles: What Seniors Should Know

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is the reactivation of the varicella zoster virus, which causes symptoms similar to that of chicken pox, including tingling/burning of the skin and a rash or band of rashes on one side of the body.


Aging’s Impact on Nutrition & Reducing the Risk of Malnutrition

Think, for instance, of all the times you’ve settled for a bagel and a cup of coffee for breakfast, when you know full well that you really should have a more well-rounded meal to start your day.


Prostate Cancer: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Based on year-over-year trends, the American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017, there will be 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer, and approximately 26,730 deaths.


Strokes: Signs, Rehabilitation, and Risk Reduction

When talking about strokes, many refer to what’s known as an ischemic stroke. Accounting for nearly 80% of all strokes, an ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel (leading to the brain) becomes blocked, cutting off blood flow to certain parts of the brain.


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.
