For many of my senior friends the old saying rings true, Their Home is Their Castle. The problem is how comfortable they become in that castle. From clutter to wires, to just being too comfortable, a senior's home is actually the #1 place they could fall and get hurt.
If you are like most of my senior friends, maintaining a healthy diet can be a challenge. There are a lot more opportunities to snack on unhealthy things, consume beverages with empty calories and eat at the wrong times of the day.
Poor eating habits and inactivity can lead to weight gain, and if left unchecked, can be linked with a number of health complications. Seniors are at risk for clinical consequences, including type 2 diabetes, arthritis, urinary incontinence and even depression.
