Soon it’ll be Halloween, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner…so enjoy autumn’s pleasures before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! Here are some ideas to make the most of this beautiful time of year and explore what autumn means to you:
Families are often caught off guard when a health crisis happens to their aging loved one. When Sandy didn’t know what to do for her father who had just suffered a broken hip and was facing surgery, she turned to Senior Transitions for guidance and advice. Learn how Senior Transitions can help you and your family when facing aging care challenges.
Everyone benefits when the whole family can stay connected, and in the last couple of years the best way to do this is through technology that Seniors typically have a difficult time understanding. For Joe and his family, buying him a tablet and teaching him how to use it was the best decision they could have made. Helping Seniors stay connected with their families may take some time but, with an open mind, it can be fun along the way!
The phrase, “laughter is the best medicine,” isn’t just being clever. Besides being a mood-booster, research shows that laughter has countless health benefits for all ages and is a large contributing factor for increased quality of life as we age. Learn how creating opportunities to laugh and have fun every day can impact your life.
Alternative and complementary health products and services are very popular in the United States, but I caution my clients that not every treatment has clinical evidence about its effectiveness. Here we review nutritional, physical, and psychological complementary approaches to help guide you in your search.
What helps seniors thrive mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually as they age? The answer varies for everyone, but the importance of learning the answers is the same. Just as the flowers bloom in spring, family members and care managers can help their older adults bloom to make the most of their ‘golden years.’
The things we want to do in our 50s and 60s are likely to change as we get older, and it is perfectly fine to re-evaluate our goals. Life is a journey that is seldom predictable, and it is never too late to switch gears, no matter how old you are.
Learning what your body needs for a healthy life is more than just getting rid of “bad foods” and sorting through what is fact vs. myth can seem like a daunting task. We used the Healthy Eating Plate to help Louise create a diet that focused on what she needed – learn how you can too.
It may be some time before the Covid vaccine lets us return to a physically social life, but in the meantime, I encourage the families, caregivers, and seniors that I work with to maintain their friendships and social ties as much as possible. Here’s how some of my clients are accomplishing this in the meantime.
Many perceptions about aging are negative: old people can’t learn new things; they’re frail; they get senile; they’re a burden. These stereotypes are not only untrue, but they make us fear and dread aging. No matter your age, it isn’t too late to make choices that improve your emotional and physical health.
