Combatting Health Problems in Seniors

combatting-health-problems-in-seniors

To age gracefully is something we all yearn for. However, achieving it not only involves spending good times with loved ones. Ultimately, it’s also about taking care of yourself.

Being in good health will always benefit us in the long run. Making healthy lifestyle decisions such as eating balanced meals and staying active are good for our wellbeing and longevity.

As a home care service provider in Hawaii, here are some tips that can help you or a loved one deal with age-related health problems:

  • Reduce alcohol intake.
    Many enjoy a shot of alcohol. However, in older adults, too much of it can lead to falls and balance problems. Not to mention, aging can lessen one’s body’s tolerance for alcohol.
  • Avoid smoking.
    In older adults, smoking can increase the risk of various health conditions such as vision loss and even Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Keep being active.
    There are many light exercises seniors can do. One of which is walking. This exercise can help promote cardiovascular health and helps in preventing muscle mass loss.

If you ever need a helping hand in staying healthy, get in touch with Helping Hands Hale today. We are a healthcare service provider in Hawaii ready to address your needs.

We also offer home care services. Learn more about us today!

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
