Turning Back The Age Old Clock

As patients grow older, physical activity begins to start a steady decline reflecting health complications and obstacles. However, we at Primary Health Solutions don’t believe that this needs to be the reality for everyone. With proper nutrition and exercise, life expectancy can increase while our patients carry on normally.

 

For aging patients, one must consider why it’s important to maintain proper exercise and diet. Not only does it make you feel better and improve your mood but also can improve mobility, memory, strength, and balance. One other key benefit is the reduced risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and stroke.

 

Here are some tips to take into consideration as you enter older age:

 

  1. Avoid falls and preventable injuries.
  2. Take a walk around the neighborhood. Stay active!
  3. Water aerobics can be wonderful for joints and muscles.
  4. A well balanced diet is still very essential in older age.
  5. Living on your own is a health benefit.
  6. Maintain a healthy relationship with your doctor.
  7. Follow medicine labels carefully.
  8. Vaccines are still useful as you age. You may need new ones!
  9. Do not ignore oral health. Brush and flossing is a must.
  10. Avoid smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and tobacco products.

 

Old age does not mean the end to physical activity and enjoyment in usual activities. It does come with slightly more caution but an older individual can still carry on with normal daily routines as accomplished in younger age. Primary Health Solutions is equipped with excellent providers to assist older patients adjusting to new lifestyle changes.

 

Primary Health Solutions continues to strive in providing patient-centered services through our medical, dental, vision, and behavioral health services. Primary Health Solutions recognizes our senior patients for taking initiative to maintain wonderful health.
