While romance gets all the hearts and flowers on Valentine’s Day, why not honour the love, affection, and special bond you have with the senior loved ones in your life? Here are five ways to celebrate, some designed for in-person gatherings and others for virtual meet-ups.
Excerpt: Research shows that while depression, high stress, anger, and loneliness can increase the risk of heart disease, promoting and supporting psychological and emotional health is good for your heart. Thinking positively, practicing self-compassion, and recognizing and treating depression help to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. Meditating to reduce stress, strengthening social ties, and finding purpose also protect your heart and improve quality of life.
You’ll find endless articles, books, videos and blogs devoted to the art of living with less—not just in terms of material goods, but in treasuring only the people, the pursuits, and the parts of our lives that bring us happiness and freedom to live the way we want to live. But there is also another way to discover a simplified life: it comes in the form of a retirement residence, where simplicity—and freedom—are built right in.
Did you know that 45% of Canadians over the age of 20 have at least one risk factor for heart disease? These factors include stress, a sedentary lifestyle, tobacco use and a poor diet. Therefore, what kind of food should we eat to help prevent heart conditions?
January is the perfect time to transform the winter blues into a warm kaleidoscope of brighter thoughts, feelings, and activities. Here are seven ways to greet the new year with positivity and a lighthearted attitude.
A balanced diet of nutrient-dense, whole foods nourishes and supports the mental, emotional, and physical health of older adults. The latest research shows that foods rich in vitamin K protect the heart, eating plenty of fruits helps prevent diabetes, and fermented foods are gut friendly. A Mediterranean-style diet improves mood, nuts and berries boost brain health, and anti-inflammatory foods lower cortisol and reduce stress.
Maintaining, expanding, or deepening social connections in your daily life can help to prevent or ease depression and anxiety, protect your heart, and strengthen your immune system. Studies show that strong social ties and support also boost brain health and may reduce the risk of dementia, lower the risk of physical disability, and are associated with greater longevity.
Retirement living is an option that addresses all of those concerns. There is a home-like environment that is safe, provides meals and housekeeping, as well as the opportunity to socialize and have friends right where you live. Easy socialization is one of the best aspects of retirement living. No one should spend their later years isolated and lonely.
It’s a common question: why would I consider retirement living unless I need nursing support or 24-hour care? While personal support is conveniently available in retirement residences, and can be customized to your specific needs—including a spectrum of light services, such as medication management, to the more substantial, like assistance with your daily routine, an escort to meals and activities, and other assisted living services—senior living communities are also designed for active, independent older adults.
Make this an especially joyous time for you and your senior loved ones with these festive activities, designed to bring families and friends together!
Falls are the leading cause of injury among older Canadians, affecting to 20% to 30% of seniors each year and causing 85% of injury-related hospitalizations. You can help prevent falls and fractures by building bone and muscle strength, improving balance, and being physically active each day. Wearing proper footwear, reviewing medications for side effects affecting balance, and checking vision and hearing regularly can also reduce the risk of falls.
Digital health tools can help Canadian seniors to enjoy good physical and mental health as a complement to in-person medical care. Virtual health visits, apps for blood pressure monitoring, text message medication reminders and digital support for physical therapy can be useful in preventing and managing chronic conditions. Video calls and virtual mental health services can also provide vital support for the social and emotional well-being of seniors.
