Welcome to the Senior Helpers Blog!

Here you will find helpful tips, loving advice, and useful information to make caring for an aging loved one a bit easier.

Thanksgiving Meals for Seniors

Thanksgiving tends to be a time for over-eating, and for many aging loved ones, over-eating can be more dangerous than filling. In fact, the average American consumes an average of 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day alone! Whiles sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, extra gravy, and pumpkin pie are definitely delicious, they are also packed with sugar, carbs, and sodium that can have a negative impact on your aging loved one’s health this holiday.

Helping the Hungry

Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans faces hunger? Did you also know that the number of starving seniors is projected to increase over the next decade? According to Feeding America, the increase in our aging population will have a profound impact on the need for social services, especially the need for nutrition services.

Promoting Positivity

You’ve heard the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, right? But what about a positive attitude? Studies have shown that a positive attitude can protect against poor health later in life. A healthy approach on life can also serve as a powerful antidote to stress and physical pain.

Paying it Forward

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, how will you show your thanks? One way to show your gratitude towards your loved ones, co-workers, and community is to “pay it forward” or rather repaying a good deed to others. What do we mean by that? The next time someone does something nice for you such as holding a door open for you, or paying for your coffee, thank them by doing something nice for another person.

Happy Veterans Day!

Senior Helpers would like to wish those who have served our country, past and present a Happy Veterans Day. We appreciate you more than you will ever know.
