Tips to Help You Stay Mentally Sharp as You Age

Stay Mentally Sharp as You Age…

We all have those moments as we get older when we forget things from time to time. We forget our passwords, or we forget why we walked into a room and we certainly forget what time our appointments are scheduled for.

So, how can you help yourself to stay mentally sharp as you age and do your best to maintain the memory that we have?

Well, we have a few tips we’d like to share that we think might be helpful.

1.       Don’t Stress! Ok, ok we know that isn’t realistic, but finding an outlet for your stress is very important. If we don’t have a healthy outlet, it starts to impact our physical bodies, including our mental stability and we need to hold on to every bit of that as we add years to our life.

Meditating, reading something inspirational or simply taking the time to take three deep breaths when you’re feeling stressed can really help settle your mind and help you stay mentally sharp as you age.

2.       Get physical! This goes right along with managing your stress. Going for a walk, finding a workout class that you love, or doing yoga can really help your mentality.

Keeping your body flowing and releasing stuck energy and toxins that might be holding on is a great way to make sure your brain is staying focused and help you stay mentally sharp as you age.

3.       Sleep! Making sure you’re getting enough sleep to take care of your body is essential to your health in many ways.

Your mind and body need the time to slow down, stop engaging and take a break from all the outside stimulation.

We hope these three tips have helped you to consider starting some new patterns in your life that may help you stay mentally sharp as you age.

Remember how important you are, and that self-care plays a huge role in keeping you at your best!

How to Prevent Seniors from Falling: Safety Tips

According to the National Council on Aging, falls are the leading cause of injuries for our senior population. These falls, resulting in injury can make a huge impact on someone’s life and create a significant life change for them in Kansas City.

Our goal as a society should be to do all that we can to prevent these falls and create awareness around providing for their safety whether they are in their own space at home or somewhere else.

We believe that we can help prevent these falls and further injuries, from happening by keeping in mind the following tips.

1. Be aware of and remove any obstacles that may be difficult for an elderly person to maneuver around. Any sharply edged or unstable furniture should be removed to prevent harm. It is also important to consider making sure the pathways in which they walk are clear and wide enough to encompass their bodies and any walkers or wheelchairs that they may need to use.

2. Encourage movement. The more movement and strength they can create in their bodies, the more they are capable of preventing a fall. By building strength, they will build confidence as well and in the event of a fall, they may be more capable of getting up on their own.

3. Communicate. Ask them how they are feeling and remind them to listen to their bodies. While creating movement is a healthy goal, it is also important for them to understand any limits that they may have and allow themselves to move accordingly or rest when needed.

Though our senior friends and family members are adding more and more years to their life, they are also still a beautiful part of our Kansas City society and their care should be of utmost importance to us.

Health Care Tips from Your In-Home Skilled Care Nurse in Kansas City

The flu, stomach bugs and the common cold have been on the rise this winter season and Kansas City is no exception to the rule here. Many have missed school and/or work and have spent long hours in emergency rooms or doctor’s offices, to find out their diagnosis and seek help to recover from their illness.

Though our in-home skilled care nurses are not exempt from these illnesses, they do have strong immune systems and have acquired some tips and tricks along the way to help fight the germs that threaten to take them down and take them away from their patients.
Consider the following tips to help you be the healthiest version of yourself during this germ-infested season.

1. Wash your hands. It goes without saying that this should be a habit already, but often we get busy and want to rush through the day, not taking the time to rid ourselves of the germs that we collect from door knobs, high fives or other surfaces we come in contact with.

2. Get plenty of sleep. Make sure you give your body the chance to recover and have down time. Having sufficient energy to fight germs is important and your body needs rest to do that.

3. Drink a LOT of water. We know this might mean extra trips to the bathroom but it also means flushing your system of toxins and keeping your body healthy and happy.

4. Stay home if you are sick. We know it’s tempting to go get that errand accomplished or go pick up dinner for the family, but you need to get some rest and keep your germs to yourself.

Sharing isn’t always caring. Use this opportunity to reach out to your loved ones and let them assist you. Everyone needs help sometimes and everyone deserves a break.

We hope these tips are helpful and that you make it through this season feeling strong and healthy!
