Healthy Diets This Thanksgiving for Seniors and Elderly in Diamond Bar

Aside from ensuring that your loved one eats healthy and well-balanced meals each day, it’s important to have good food handling habits – especially this Thanksgiving. Elderly and Senior individuals have an increased risk of food-borne illness because their immune systems become weaker as they age.  To promote a healthy diet, caregivers or family members may go grocery shopping on a weekly basis to buy foods for the coming week’s daily meals, but with food items such as meat, poultry, and vegetables, it’s important to take into account how long it is safe to leave the food sitting out, how the food is prepared, and maintaining the food in the refrigerator.  Check out this article on Aging Care that talks about food safety measures you can take to prevent food poisoning.

Arthritis Prevention

a-1 home care arthritis prevention diamond bar

 

Arthritis may be common but it does not mean you can’t prevent it. Cartilages that get damage cannot make full recovery or grow new cartilages, thus preventing damage to the cartilages is important. A healthy diet and exercise is important to maintain healthy cartilages. A healthy diet gives you the benefits of antioxidants, vitamin c and d, and other properties that can keep your joints strong and healthy. Together with exercise, it can keep excess weight off. Extra weight results in more pressure on the joints and cartilages. Exercise is a great way to keep your joints and cartilages stimulated and strong. If you don’t stretch or move your joints often, it can become stiff and fragile. Exercise should be in moderation so you do not hurt your joints. Another prevention is to avoid doing any activity that may hurt your joints such as heavy lifting. Keeping your joints and muscle healthy strong is the best prevention for arthritis.
