Healthy Tips For Aging Seniors


Making a difference today so that tomorrow's days remain active and healthy. A few smart choices may ward off or delay arthritis, dementia, depression, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and may be even cancer. Fitness and healthy eating are two keys to remaining healthy. Other modifications are worth considering and implementing too.

Physician Appointments, Physicals and Immunizations – Visit your primary care physician for preventative care on a regular basis. Review your medications with your physician and/or pharmacist regularly. Keep a list of your medications with you at all times. Schedule and get your regular health screenings each year including eye, foot, and/or hearing. Schedule a yearly skin check with a dermatologist each year and wear sunblock daily.

Oral Health - Brush and floss twice a day. Maintain your regular dental appointments at least every six months. No smoking or tobacco products.

Socialization – Remain proactive in life and health decisions. Visit with family and friends. Engage in social activities and outings – lunch, bunco, church, senior groups, plays, walks, museums or anything that you enjoy.

Food and Drink – Limit alcohol to one drink or less per day. Drink plenty of water to maintain hydration as long as there are no fluid restrictions. Minimize salt. Eat a balanced diet full of colorful vegetables and fruits.

Schedules – Keep regular schedules. Get plenty of sleep. Try to avoid long naps throughout the day so that you can continue to get a great night's sleep.

Safety – Maintain safety in the home at all times. Get rid of throw rugs to prevent falls. Install grab bars, shower benches, hand held showers, and other safety measures to promote your independence. Don't drive if you are confused, tired, medicated or have slower reaction times. Install and wear a personal emergency response pendant to alert help if needed.

Help – Hire help if needed for meals, housekeeping, driving, personal care including showering, toileting, dressing, grooming, medications, pet care or socialization. A little help can go along way to maintaining seniors independence and health.

HOW TO GET YOUR EX BACK WITHOUT PANIC I am Michelle from San Francisco. i want to testify about powerful Dr keke Odin for saving my relationship.I must be one of the few who don?t have a trouble showing and telling someone how grateful I am for making my relationship a melodious and smooth relationship. I have been trying to be more positive about my relationship with my boyfriend, it seems like it has taken forever. Another lady took my Fiancee away from me and they both relocated. i cried and searched for him to come back but he refused to take my calls nor return my messages. My friend introduced me to a powerful spell caster called Dr Keke Odin who helped me cast a very powerful love spell that brought back my Fiancee in 24 hours. i was amazed and surprised when my fiancee called to beg me for forgiveness all because of the powerful love spell of Dr Keke Odin. dont fail to Contact Dr Keke through the following means if you have any Marrital or Relationship problem. his contact information are Email:
