Mobility Issues Effecting Seniors

It’s no surprise to anyone that slips and falls are more likely to occur as we age and are more likely to cause injury in seniors. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that about 1 out of 3 individuals older than 65 years of age falls and 30% of those people experience a medical injury such as broken hips or head trauma. Subsequently, the recovery time and damage caused by the fall could create a lifetime of troublesome living while adding to the degree of danger as our loved ones age.

Caring For Yourself As You Care For Others

A recent study showed that nearly one in five caregivers in the United States provides more than 40 hours of care to a loved one every week. That is startling when you realize that many of those caregivers, the so-called Sandwich Generation, are also caring for families of their own as well as pursuing full time careers.

How To Help Seniors With Spring Cleaning

One of the chores this time of year is typically to spring clean a house. Spring cleaning tasks are a way for families to connect and spend time together while clearing out the winter doldrums and opening up the windows (literally) to spring and summer. Talk with the seniors in your life and see if they would like help with a spring cleaning weekend. You can wash windows and walls together, clean curtains and perhaps even change from heavier winter curtains to breezier summer ones. Use this time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as well.
