Ways to Reduce the Risk of Dementia

Ways to Reduce the Risk of Dementia

One of the most common health risks associated with seniors is the development of dementia. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently reported that dementia is a rapidly growing health problem. Right now, dementia affects about 50 million people worldwide. It is a major cause of disability and dependency among seniors, and it is a huge expense to victims and to the health care system. Dementia is not one disease, it is a group of symptoms that can be caused by several brain disorders. Alzheimer's disease is just one of several types of dementia, but it does account for most (60% to 80%) of dementia cases. The World Health Organization report confirms some points that your own doctor may have already told you: The cause of Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, is not known. Right now, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s disease. There are some things you can do to reduce the likelihood of developing some dementias, including...

In observance of Memorial Day

In observance of Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, and we at OurSeniors.net wish each of you a very happy holiday. Today, the 27th of May, the National Memorial Day Parade will be held in Washington DC. In many Florida locations, this will be seen on local TV (2PM Eastern time). If the broadcast is not available in your area, you can catch it live on YouTube at The 2019 National Memorial Day Parade - Live Stream. The link will probably be active for some time after. Memorial Day observances have been held since the years following the Civil War. Hundreds of politicians, clergy and patriots have given speeches on this day, but the finest Memorial Day speech ever delivered may have been given before there even was such an observance. In November of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to speak at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery, a memorial to the soldiers who fought and died there. Lincoln delivered the greatest...

Seniors, Keep Moving!

Seniors, Keep Moving!

Regular physical activity benefits people of any age, and seniors are no exception. In fact, physical activity is essential for healthy aging. Seniors not only gain health benefits from regular physical activity, they will also see improved mental and psychological health. It is never too late to start being physically active. When you do, it makes it easier to perform the routine activities of daily life, including simple things like getting out of a chair or moving around the house. Physical activity helps to preserve mobility, maintain independence and delay the onset of major disability. Exercise can improve physical function in adults of any age, including adults who are overweight and even those who are frail. Seniors are a varied group, but studies show that the senior population is the least physically active of any age group, and most older adults spend a significant proportion of their day being sedentary. This inactivity contributes to chronic medical problems like, type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease,...

Seniors ‘Network’ More Than You Think!

Seniors ‘Network’ More Than You Think!

We know that one of the keys to good senior health is remaining active and engaged with the people and the community around you. Networking with friends, family and peers is supposed to be a recent invention of teenagers and digital age young adults, but it is not! Seniors have been networking for decades, even if it did not involve smart phones. Seniors often live near to each other, they depend on each other for advice, and they trust one another. That’s one reason we like the OurSeniors.net Brunch and Learn Events so much. They give us a chance to meet with and network in-person with seniors. We find out what is on their minds, what are their concerns and their questions. It helps us as much as it does them! These events also give senior-oriented businesses and professional people a chance to do the same. In the past, we have featured professionals from the fields of dentistry, financial planning, law, senior...
