If you are living with Diabetes it is very important that you pay proper attention to your feet.
A daily routine of monitoring and caring for your feet can save you a lot of pain and suffering, and it might even save your feet.
Why joint replacement surgeries are on the rise isn’t really the issue, though. What is the issue, however, is how to make the most of the recovery process so that life can be as pain-free as possible.
According to AARP over 80% of seniors would rather live in their current home than downsize to a senior living community or an assisted living facility. But they also realize that in order to do so, they need to be willing and able to make some adaptations to the home to make it safer and more ‘friendlier’ to their aging self.
Getting older has its share of challenges. For the most part these challenges cannot be ignored—especially when it comes to living in a home that is as safe as possible in regards to preventing falls. After all, the number-one desire of seniors is to be able to maintain as much independence as possible and to remain in their own home (age in place).
Studies show that the resolutions kept most often are those that a) have an effect on their loved ones b) provide a greater degree of security. When you combine the two, it only makes sense that you would renew your commitment to making sure the seniors in your life can live comfortably and safely in their own home.
