Spring into Fitness

Spring time can help dissipate the depression of the darker days of winter.  With the onset of brighter days and longer evenings exercising outdoors will prove beneficial for mental and physical health.

Depression in Winter

The darker January days offer reduced hours of mood-boosting sunlight. Some people who regularly experience feelings of sadness and anxiety during the winter months are diagnosed with a particular type of depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

3 Home Modifications to Help Your Aging Family Members

The fact still remains, however, that certain dangers can be lurking in your home as your body continues to age. In order to ensure the safety of your loved ones, here are some suggested home modifications for aging family members.

Gift Ideas for the Elderly

In an effort to reduce your stress when shopping for your parents or grandparents, Right at Home has put together a brief guide to gift ideas for the elderly. We’ve taken into account budget, lifestyle and interests. After all, the Christmas shouldn’t be about the stress of finding the perfect gift; they should be about the joy you feel when watching someone you love open it.

Identity Theft and the Elderly

The theft of your elderly loved one’s identity can result in substantial financial losses and unnecessary stress. Identity fraud occurs when an imposter steals confidential information such as credit card and bank account details. Once this information is obtained a fraudster can obtain credit, services or goods in the name of your loved one. This year in the UK, Experian (the leading global information services company) reported a rise of nearly 2% in the first six months of 2015 - compared to the previous year - in fraudsters targeting elderly people, particularly men.

The Dangers of Consuming Too Much Salt

It’s next to impossible to avoid salt in your diet. Used as a common preservative, it can be found in most items on the shelves of your local supermarket – and it’s easy to ignore your intake until your doctor tells you otherwise. However as we age, it’s important to be more proactive about our health, which also means being more proactive about our diet.
