If you have been told you have arthritis or maladies that affect movement, a mobility device is vital to managing your independence. Hallowell retirement homes always allow access for crutches, zimmerframes, walking sticks, lift chairs or wheelchairs that assist movement. Lots of retirement homes will be adapted for users of wheelchairs and cushioned lift chairs will be available to assist those who need help to stand up from a seated position. Talking about your unique needs is advised because each retirement home is different, however most facilities will always be happy to oblige.
It is tough, hard work and tiring to care for a member of the family who is suffering with health issues for a long time. Although it can be disturbing to hand over the reigns and allow someone else to look after your elderly relative, you do need a little break once in a while and make sure your own needs are being met too - Hallowell respite care is the ideal solution. This service can be arranged for a few hours in your home or you can opt for residential respite care where your loved one can stay overnight. If you are looking to go on holiday or make a business trip you can be assured and confident that your mom and dad or in fact any senior member of your family is being taken care of responsibly and professionally.
In essence the foods that doctors, physicians and nutritionists have declared as healthy for people over the age of retirement are really just the same as the foods that everyone else should be eating too. Vibrant vegetables and delicious fruits should be a mainstay in addition to items that have a high percentage of fibre content such as wholegrains, lentils, peas and beans. Eat less red meat and try to incorporate more fresh fish and lean chicken.
