7 Ways You Can Help Your Aging Loved One Overcome the Winter Blues

The dark and dreary days of winter can take an emotional toll on any of us, sapping our energy, enthusiasm and zest for life. However, the winter blues can be especially difficult for aging loved ones who are already considered to be at greater risk of becoming depressed.

Once the holidays have passed, we enter a seemingly interminable stretch when winter’s colder and shorter days seem like they will never end. During this period, older adults will sometimes dwell on the people and abilities they’ve lost over the years and become listless and forlorn. 

7 Ways to Keep Your Older Loved Ones Safe This Winter

Winter can be one of the most picturesque seasons of the year. Gently falling snow and the sparkle of ice-covered trees can create beautiful landscapes for the eye to behold. However, winter’s natural beauty is also accompanied by conditions and circumstances that can create serious health and safety concerns for older adults.

What Every Senior Should Know About Cold and Flu Prevention

The cold and flu season can bring discomfort and short-term misery for any of us. Fortunately, most of us get over the unpleasant symptoms in a few days or at most a couple of weeks.

For senior adults, however, the flu season brings along much greater concerns. The risks can be much higher and the consequences can be much more severe for seniors.
