As people age, many of us live in our own little bubble and have limited interaction with the outside world.  Part of it is because their adult children are busy, and another reason is because of the minor aches and pains that might be discouraging them from participating in different activities.  However, group activities with other seniors might just be the perfect way to help them stay active socially and avoid being stressed because of loneliness at home. Here is a few ideas on what seniors can do as a group to spend their free time!

  • Dancing – Dancing is fun, it is social, and it provides exercise to the seniors.
  • Bingo – The quintessential group game for seniors, but seniors find it enjoyable to participate in a group.
  • Bus Trips – Driving may not be possible for seniors anymore with the different ailments they experience, so why not considering taking a field trip on public transport?
  • Gardening – It is not just for your backyard, try beautifying a community garden together!
  • Exercise classes – Stay fit together as a group and live a healthier lifestyle!

Experiences are more fun when it is shared with others, so find group activities around your community to participate in today!

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.  There are generally two types of prostate cancer – one that grows slowly and confined in the prostate gland, and others that spread more aggressively.  Like other cancers, early detection increases your chance of overcoming the disease successfully.  Because the blood level of the Prostate-Specific Antigen is usually elevated, that’s why PSA testing is one of the main way to catch the disease early.  However, PSA results may lead to something called “overdiagnosis” according to the National Cancer Institute, where treatments for non-life-threatening tumor leads to complications and side effects such as infection, erectile dysfunction, problems with bowel function, and urinary incontinence.

Since we are nearly the end of Men’s Health Month, we encourage all men to talk to your doctor about your need for a prostate exam and PSA test.

Happy senior couple cooking together at kitchen. Focus on man.

There are many diets out there for people to choose from, and it can be overwhelming in which one to choose.  One diet that is seemingly more popular than others is the Mediterranean diet because it is one of the more effective diets in promoting health and preventing disease. This diet is based on the traditional cooking from the countries near the Mediterranean Sea, and it is very similar to other diets because it has the basic structure of being high in fruits and vegetables and whole grains with limitation on unhealthy fats.

The differentiation with the Mediterranean diet is the emphasis on healthy fats.  Whereas we put put butter on our bread, bread is either consumed plain or dipped in olive oil in the Mediterranean diet.  Furthermore, nuts are also an important part of this diet and nuts also contain a high amount of healthy fat.

A diet high in healthy fats from olive oil and nuts and low in unhealthy fats from butter or margarine over means a much more heart healthy diet and it has shown sign to reduce cases of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.  May is National Mediterranean Diet Month, and we encourage everyone to take a look at this wonderful diet and raise awareness of its benefits because reducing the number of heart diseases should be a top priority in this country.

A-1 Home Care in Corona Del Mar has a wonderfully dedicated team of in home caregivers ready to provide their expert support.

There are so many factors to consider when trying to eat health. Many would first consider the taste, then they might narrow down to the ingredients, and so on.  To effectively live a healthy lifestyle, there are several tips that you may want to follow.

  • Take time to enjoy your food –  I always try to taste my food slowly, and try grasp the taste of the food I am eating.  As a result, I tend to eat less and not over-consume.
  • Dominate your plate with fruits and vegetables – You can never eat enough fruits and vegetables, so try to make a conscious effort in eating more by eating half a plate of fruits and vegetables per meal
  • Drink water – There are about 10 teaspoon of sugar in a 12 oz can of soda. That is enough sugar for the whole day! Try to avoid such dramatic sugar intake by drinking water throughout the day.
  • Control you calories- Every person has a calorie level to maintain their body weight.  Over it, and you will gain weight. Burn enough calories, and you will lose weight.
  • More grains – The body handles whole grain products much better than refined products.  Eat whole grain bread instead of white bread, brown rice instead of white rice, etc

These are just some of the many tips of health diets, follow them and you are on your way to better health and a better life.

Stress is inevitable in all our lives, and some more prevalent than others.  Particularly, elderly individuals who are living with less ability than they used to, suffering from chronic ailments, and are becoming less social, they are more susceptible to being stressed.  Not only does stress take a toll on them emotionally, it has a rather negative effects on physical health as well.  In fact, it happens more than we would imagine as medical research has suggested that up to 90% of all illness and disease are stress-related according to the CDC.  As a result, one can view stress management as preventive medicine that provides a boost to the immune system.

We sleep every day.  Why? Because our body needs to recharge itself.  Our cell phones won’t function unless you recharge it, so if we don’t get enough sleep to recharge our body, then we put a lot of stress on our body to keep functioning.  However, getting enough sleep is simply not enough to fend off the stress.  Elderly may have difficulties staying active, but it is physical activity plays a big role in stress relief.  From Yoga to Tai Chi to aquatic exercises, low impact activities allow seniors to keep up with their fitness, pump up the “feel-good endorphins”, and help relief stress.  Lastly, it might be a good idea to begin keeping a journal or diary, that way you can write out your thoughts and release whatever emotions might be held inside.  There are many other ways to go about relieving stress for seniors, so pass on these suggestions and open up a discussion with your loved ones about lowering their stress and staying healthy.

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.
