Staying healthy at every stage of life is vital for enjoying it fully. Aging brings new challenges to the goal of maintaining good health. Arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease often creep in to rob you or your loved one of the zest for life. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a silent killer as it damages blood vessels and the heart. If left uncontrolled, hypertension increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, especially in seniors.
Blood pressure can be better managed by working with the doctor towards healthier eating habits, proper exercise and making sure prescribed medication is taken regularly. If your elderly loved one struggles to make the required changes, in-home senior care professionals can make a big difference. They provide ready assistance and support with daily chores, cooking nutritious meals, transportation to appointments, and monitoring prescriptions.
