It’s an unfortunate fact that seniors in all income brackets are common targets for scams. There is good news though – there are lots of actions seniors can take to spot, avoid, and deal with scams.

Make realistic goals for yourself for achieving better hydration. Work on increasing hydration day by day. Have a few water bottles readily available that you can keep with you throughout each day. Also, try out different fruit types in your water to jazz up the flavor. Strawberries, lemon, melon, and grapes can make water more fun to drink!

Did you know that choosing the right, healthy foods can aid us in decreasing the decline of our cognitive abilities? For instance, fish is a great choice for brain health. Think of fish as brain food due to the Omega-3 fatty acids it contains and other important qualities. Independent of the Omega-3 Fatty Acids non-fried fish has been found to be positively associated with gray matter volumes in areas of the brain that control memory and, you guessed it… cognition! Check out our post on Boosting Cognition to learn more about how your diet can affect your brain!

Detect a stroke by remembering to act FAST

If a stroke is suspected, fast action is recommended, which is why “FAST” is the acronym for stroke detection and seeking help.

*F: Face drooping. *Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile and note if that smile is uneven or lopsided.

A: Arm Weakness. Is one of their arms weak or experiencing numbness? Ask the person to lift one arm and note if it drifts downward.

S: Speech Difficulty. Is the person’s speech slurred or hard to understand? Are they unable to speak? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence like, “The grass is green.” Can the person do this?

T: Time to call 911. If a person shows any of these symptoms – even if the symptoms go away – call 911 and say “I think this is a stroke,” to help the person get immediate medical attention. Time is very important when it comes to strokes, so note when symptoms have occurred and let emergency responders know.

Routine medical check-ups are recommended for people of all ages. What a doctor checks for in a regular physical will differ based on a variety of factors including age and gender. As we age different screenings are recommended as our risk for developing certain health issues increases. Routine checkups and receiving proper screenings are both vital exercises for assessing medical issues, future problems and learning how to remain healthy.

The month of June is National Men’s Health Month dedicated to highlighting male-specific health needs. For men over 50 years old, five health areas that take the spotlight include the heart, prostate, skin, mind and bones. Read on to learn more about these five areas of men’s health, risks associated with them and ways to slow or prevent the development of these issues.

Companionship and Community in Senior Living
Mounting evidence shows that companionship and community are a key component to overall health. No longer are they seen as sitting a few rungs up Maslow’s hierarchy of needs; they are foundational to your well-being. This is true across all ages, including seniors. Feeling extreme loneliness, for example, has been shown to increase an older person’s chances of premature death by 14 percent. 
 
A myriad of factors are weighed when deciding to move into a senior living community. The opportunity for companionship and community should be one of them. When researching different senior living options, investigate the opportunities for social connections and interactions at each community.
