Keeping Pneumonia Away from Your Aging Loved One

Keeping Pneumonia Away from Aging Loved Ones | Pneumonia is a lung disease that can be caused by pathogens commonly found in the air we breathe. The reason why everything isn’t suffering from this disease is that the human immune system is very good when it comes to keeping pneumonia away. The trouble comes when the immune system weakens.

And that’s exactly what happens when people get old. That’s the reason why pneumonia is very common among seniors. Unfortunately, not only is it very common, but it’s also very severe. This disease can lead to all sorts of complications and can even result in death.

All of this means that you have every right to be concerned about the health of your senior loved one. The good news is that it’s possible to reduce the risk of pneumonia significantly.

Here are some of the things you can do to achieve that:

  • Keep their home clean. In order to keep this disease away from your aging loved one, you need to try to reduce the number of pneumonia-causing pathogens. And that’s done by regularly cleaning the home where the senior lives.
  • Help them with personal hygiene. Even if their home is clean, it doesn’t mean that they can’t catch pneumonia someplace else. That is why it’s important to remind the senior to wash their hands every time they come back from church, marketplace, or any other place that’s visited by a large number of people.
  • Ensure they get vaccinated. Immunization is the key to preventing all sorts of serious diseases, including pneumonia.

Unfortunately, taking care of all these things can be pretty exhausting. If you can’t do it on your own, maybe it’s better to ask professionals to help out.
