How Seniors Can Benefit from Occupational Therapy #OccupationalTherapy

Growing older brings about a whole host of changes that alter our ability to participate in everyday tasks in the same way that we did in younger years.

For seniors, it can be both emotionally and physically challenging to accept that changes are taking place that inhibit participation in aspects of life that brought about feelings of fulfillment or independence. Seniors grappling with how to adjust and move forward with their new realities can benefit greatly from participating in Occupational Therapy to help them work through challenges and set themselves up to continue to live independent and fulfilling lives for as long as possible.

Strategies for Keeping Seniors Safe from Scams #SeniorHomeCare #HomeCare

In the modern age, the developments in communication technologies and other tools that provide us easier access to one another are continually expanding.

These new ways to connect with one another can help us to uphold important connections and to reach out to one another through easier and more diverse types of connection. While having such ease of access to each other can be helpful and valuable in our lives, it is also true that each new type of contact adds another outlet through which people with unkind or dishonourable intentions can take advantage of us. Nowadays, the fact that contact details and other personal information is easier to access than ever before, when each of us had merely one phone number and a home address, means that scams are more widespread and prevalent than they ever have been in the past. Unfortunately, seniors are among the groups most often targeted by scammers, so it is extremely important that seniors and their caregivers come to understand how to best keep themselves protected against scams.

Proper Care for Aging Skin #SeniorCare #OttawaHomeCare

Along with aging comes changes in what our bodies require to remain healthy and happy, and that often means changing our behaviors to better meet those new needs.

Our skin, for example, becomes both weaker and more sensitive as we grow older and this means that the ways that we care for our skin must be reconsidered and changed accordingly to better address the specific care needs of aging skin. Skin care routines and the regimens that were appropriate and effective in younger years might not have the same positive results on older skin, and the concerns that exist in relation to skin-health are also different as our skin grows older.
