Signs of a Stressed-Out Senior

As your body ages over time, it becomes less tolerant to physical, mental, and emotional stress.

High stress levels in elderly adults can cause:

- A bad temper
- Migraines or headaches
- Lack of sleep
- Anxiety
- Indigestion

If unaddressed, these symptoms could put a person’s health at risk. Consider lessening stressful activity, increasing relaxing projects, and getting house help to do the physically demanding house chores.

Senior Personal Hygiene: How Much Assistance Should I Provide?

Personal hygiene is still as important to seniors as it is to other age groups. However, hygiene tasks can already be cumbersome for aging individuals. This is where you, another family member, or a certified nurse aide comes in.

It is essential to provide your aging loved ones with the necessary support. However, helping them maintain as much independence as possible is also essential. Always keep in mind to provide assistance at a level where both of these factors are in balance with each other.
