Holiday gatherings give adult children an opportunity to talk with their senior and elder parents to sense and observe whether they are doing well or if they may need help to maintain their independence.

Senior diabetes and eye diseases: it’s estimated that 90% of people with type 1 diabetes will be affected by diabetic retinopathy, and 19% of new cases of diabetes-related blindness occur in those 45-64 years of age.

Life is hard and demanding no matter what stage of life. Some stages are easier than others, depending on the person’s own circumstances. With the holiday season approaching, now is a good time to check in with elderly or senior loved ones.
