Substance Abuse Among Seniors

Substance Abuse Among Seniors

Did you know that alcohol and drug abuse is high among seniors? More than 49 percent of older adults were reported as at-risk drinkers by The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 85 percent of seniors who suffer from a chronic health condition are even more susceptible to substance abuse. Signs that a loved one may be suffering from substance abuse issues: A sudden disinterest in activities Lack of energy/motivation Weight loss/gain Red eyes Uncared-for appearance Changes in behavior Sudden strain in relationships with family and friends Abrupt money issues The National Council on Aging reports that senior alcohol and drug abuse is expected to double to five million by 2020.

A Senior’s Guide to Healthy Heart Lifestyle

A Senior’s Guide to Healthy Heart Lifestyle

The heart is the engine that keeps the human body moving. It pumps blood in and out of the lungs and supplies the entire body with oxygen. As we age, our hearts begin to slow down, and our arteries stiffen. This change is natural, so being proactive over our heart's health is essential. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for older adults. Adults 65 and older have an increased risk of developing heart disease and are much more likely to suffer from a heart attack or heart failure. This change, in one of the most active muscles in the human body, is debilitating and dramatically reduces the quality of life of seniors. Luckily there are ways to prevent, delay, and reverse the risks of heart problems! How to have a healthy heart: Have your blood pressure checked regularly Two and a half hours of cardio/week Two days of strengthening exercises/week ...

Holiday Stress and Sadness

Holiday Stress and Sadness

The holidays are just a few weeks away and for many, this is the best time of the year. For some, this is not the best time of the year as it may serve as a reminder of financial instability, the inability to see family and friends or of past holidays and the people who they are no longer able to share it with. There are a few ways to get ahead of these negative thoughts and feelings such as setting realistic goals of what you can and cannot do, letting the past go and enjoying the present moment, meeting new friends or joining a new group to be with during the holidays or volunteering to help someone else in need. All of these can help alleviate the stress of the holiday season and provide a better perspective. For those who are unable to leave their home and feel alone, unhappy or detached, SilverCloud is a great tool to use to...
