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...

More About the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit

More About the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit

Earlier this week we mentioned the Veterans Administration program known as the Aid and Attendance Benefit, sometimes called the “Improved Pension,” the “VA Assisted Living Benefit,” or the “A & A.” That was good timing, because next week the OurSeniors.net Brunch and Learn Event will feature a speaker on that very subject. Mr. Anthony Ford, President of Partners in Healthcare of Orlando and Plan Life Care of Daytona will speak on the topic of the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit. Anthony has years of experience dealing with in-home care, Medicare, Medicaid and programs like the VA Aid & Attendance Benefit. If you are a veteran or the spouse or loved one of a veteran, hearing this information could make a huge difference to you. This program may help pay the cost of in-home care for you or that loved one! Here are the program details: Date: Friday May 24th Time: 10 AM to Noon Location: Colonial Room Restaurant, 105 E. 1st Street...
