Not everyone in this country lives near their aging parents. Some of which are separated by thousands of miles across each coast of the country. It may be difficult to give care when the distance is that far apart. However, thanks to the power of the Internet, it is possible to check on the aging parents regularly in an more interactive way. In this MSNBC article titled “Millions Now Manage Aging Parents Care Afar“, it discussed about how Skype, a video telephone service is making it easier for someone to check on their loved ones from afar, and that can give the elderly a peace of mind that is often ignored.  Of course, many seniors do not understand the digital world as well as most of us, but with some patience, these communication services can be taught  in time for the purpose.

Many seniors and elderly enjoy cooking. But with impaired physical abilities, working around fire and knives can have its danger. Here are a few safety tips for the kitchen to follow so your elderly loved ones can enjoy preparing their favorite meals.  First, make sure there are enough lighting in the kitchen so all areas like sink and counter tops are well-lit.  Put away all the unnecessary appliances and ensure the ones in use are properly maintained. It is also important to keep things organized, drawers closed, and clear up unnecessary items to avoid accidents, falls, and other problems.

Arthritis may be incurable but there are ways to manage arthritis and keep it under control. Start with the easiest changes you can make, the food you eat. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are caused by the inflammation of joints. Eating anti-inflammatory foods and avoid inflammatory foods can reduce the risk of  inflammation and pain. Omega 3 fatty acids rich foods such as salmon and tuna, ginger, turmeric, and flaxseed all have anti-inflammatory properties. Arthritis patients should avoid omega 6 fatty acids, according to WebMD, which “may also promote inflammatory and/or autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis”. Learn more about food and arthritis through “Can Your Diet Help Relieve Rheumatoid Arthritis?“. Arthritis patients should also consume more vegetables and fruits which contain higher levels of vitamin C and E which promotes anti-oxidant properties. Everyone’s health is different and there is no one set diet for arthritis patients. However, eating foods with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may help with arthritis.
