While Superfoods are good for everyone, the benefits of Superfoods are more pronounced for seniors that have a smaller appetites.

Winter is a great time to simmer a hearty soup on the stove. Cooking softens foods, making them easier for seniors to digest. Top Superfoods for Seniors and great for soups are tomatoes, beans and peas include chick peas, kidney beans, lentils, black beans, and red beans.

Winter Impacts Seniors Health !

Heart attacks and high blood pressure are more common in winter because cold snaps increase blood pressure and strain on the heart. The heart has to work harder to maintain body heat.

Painful joints occur more often in winter, though it's not clear why this is the case. Mild daily exercise can help to alleviate symptoms, as can indoor swimming during winter months.

Depression may worsen. Encourage seniors to consume foods fortified with Vitamin D, such as milk, grains, and seafood like tuna and salmon.

Flu vaccines may not always prevent the illness, but it can reduce the severity of the symptoms and protect against complications.

Is Your Loved One Ready for Hospice?

Has the disease progressed to the point you and your loved one have decided to manage the pain and be comfortable rather than actively seek to treat the disease?

Are they choosing to forego any further testing allowing for the body functions and organs to diminish naturally?

Have they begun to let go, say good-bye and be seeming to tie up lose ends?

Call today to set up an appointment or for more information (623) 209-7003. https://buff.ly/2CJJvQY

Now that the holiday decorations are all put away, the parties are over and the out of town guests have departed, are you feeling down?

As we return to our usual routines, it might come as no surprise that post-holiday seasonal 'blues' often reach their peak. This includes our aging family members.

Here are some ways seniors can help alleviate the post-holiday blues:

* Plan a spring vacation to keep spirits up and for something to look forward to
* Learn something new to keep the mind busy and healthy
* Create visible memories of the holiday season through photographs and scrapbooking
* Take decorations down slowly rather than all at once to elongate and savor the holiday season
