An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so the adage goes for healthy aging. While that may—or may not—be the case, eating well and staying fit are two important factors in senior health care. These resources offer health tips for seniors on self-care and safety, including medication management and the importance of medication safety to help you prioritize your health on a daily basis.
We provide valuable insights on common health concerns for older adults, such as how to identify risk factors for CAD (coronary artery disease) and signs of stroke. We also offer chronic pain management techniques and tips for seniors who are living with chronic pain.
Since caregivers or loved ones are often involved in senior health care, we’ve also included tips for caregivers in our health resources. Although this role can be very rewarding, it can be very challenging, particularly if it involves caring for a loved one with a physical disability, memory loss or dementia. We also offer information to those managing senior health care in order to support them and help prevent burnout.
Healthy aging and being proactive in your senior health care requires more than just having regular checkups with your doctor. It requires taking ownership of your health and prioritizing it on a daily basis with proactive, self care.
