Seniors with diabetes is a common health occurrence. In fact, it’s estimated that about half of all the seniors are at risk of developing diabetes type 2. The biggest problem with this condition is that it can lead to many other health problems, including heart attack, kidney problems, and so on.
The good news is that diabetes can be put under control. Medications surely can help, but the crucial weapon in the battle against diabetes is a healthy lifestyle. In order to lead a healthy lifestyle, your aging loved one needs to eat a healthy diet, get enough exercise, reduce the stress levels, and so on.
If your senior loved one lives alone, they might struggle with the tasks necessary to achieve a healthy lifestyle. For example, they might have problems with meal preparation or grocery shopping, which can be really challenging for those seniors who can’t drive.
On top of that, the senior needs to get some physical activity on a regular basis in order to ensure their physical and mental health. But, they usually need some help with working out. They need someone there by their side to help them out with a certain exercise, but also to make sure that they’re not gonna get hurt.
And if you can’t be there for them all the time, maybe hiring professionals is the solution? Comfort Keepers of Calgary, AB can help with all the tasks necessary to help the senior win the battle against diabetes.
