Research has shown that dance improves balance, agility and muscle strength, and suggests it could also improve mood and reduce the risk of depression in older adults. This is also important as all of these are considered important factors for reducing falls, a common cause of serious injur...

Can technology help to alleviate loneliness in the over 80s? http://bit.ly/29h40L7
Today’s society is more connected than ever before. The vast majority of the population now use social media to communicate and keep in touch with friends. In the UK, for example, 38 million people use Facebook. Yet, at the same time, there are around 1 million older people who haven’t spoken to a friend, neighbour or family member for at least a month. Loneliness in older people is therefore a very real problem.

How to age with confidence http://bit.ly/28Kl8VW
It can be easy to lose confidence as you age. You think your body is not as shapely, your face has a few more lines, your hair is greyer. There isn’t anyone who doesn’t look in the mirror sometimes and think that they look terrible….even supermodels!

The real reasons why you should register your domesticappliances. http://bit.ly/1XTIH3S
It’s of vital importance that your older relative should register their home appliances, in order to be kept informed about appliance recalls. We have at least 100 million large domestic appliances in use in our homes, but only 55% of over 65 year olds register their ovens, fridges and washing machines, meaning thousands of older and more vulnerable owners can miss out on vital, free, product safety repairs.
