Health goals start with knowing your weaknesses and your strengths and doing something about it. Do you know your blood pressure numbers?

Health goals? We should always have health goals in mind, regardless of our age. However, keeping goals tucked away in the back of our mind does little for our health and for our self-esteem, unless we take action. 
1. Plan, write, visualize and map out your goals
2. Start small, one goal at a time
2. Stay the course, persevere 
3. Build on difficulty, challenge yourself 
Keeping up with your health goals does wonders for your health and for your self-esteem; you're telling yourself, "I can do this and do more!"'

University of Waterloo researchers have found out that drawing a picture may help recall words and information as compared to just writing words. Researchers published their findings in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology.

Death from influenza virus in older people may be primarily caused by a damaging immune response to flu and not by the virus itself, new research suggests. The insight could lead to novel strategies for combating flu in the most vulnerable patients, said the researchers.

Senior Driving Safety -- Tips to Help Keep Seniors Safe, Driving Assessments and Driving Classes
"Soon, we notice that our 74-year-old mother seems hesitant when stopping or slowing at intersections. We put on our “imaginary” brakes, as we sit in the front passenger seat next to her. We sigh, we gulp and we pray like never before." Read this recent blog posted in the Orlando Sentinel. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/health/senior-helpers/os-senior-driving-safety-20160411-story.html

Brittney Winston, Senior Helpers of Orlando Client Relations Manager, attended the Alzheimer's & Dementia Resource Center's caregiver sendoff event that took place at the Reeves United Methodist Church.

Senior Helpers has assisted us with the care of my mother for over four years - first at her home and then in a nursing home facility. They are a wonderful Christian based organization. Senior Helpers exceeded our needs in the care of our mom. All of the caregivers she had over the period of years were excellent! Her caregivers while she was in the nursing home treated her with such kindness and dignity and took care of her as if she was their family member! If there was any issue, Senior Helpers responded immediately. I highly recommend this organization for the care of your loved one!

I hired Senior Helpers after doing much research of in-home care providers. I live out-of-state so it was important to find the right people to assist my mom and dad with their daily living. I am very happy with their services, the caregivers, and the difference it has made for mom and dad. Dad has advanced dementia, and was sleeping too much, not capable of personal care and wasn't eating well. This has all changed since Senior Helpers was hired. He is now receiving regular personal care, and enjoys it, and has regular healthy meals. It has made a big difference with him. Mom has moderate dementia but has always run the house, so it was going to be difficult for her to let go. The caregivers have been very patient, but slowly they have assumed the daily responsibilities and without injuring mom's feelings. Overall, I'm very pleased with their services and the positive effect it has had on my parents.
