What is the diet for seniors and elders during this Spring – Summer?

ApnaCare can help you connect with a Dietician to help you start on a new diet this spring

The season of spring is a great time to start on a new regimen of good health and wellness. Keeping healthy all year round is important for elders and  seniors, but spring can be a great motivator for beginners to start afresh on a quest to stay healthy, fit and active.

The beautiful weather opens up several opportunities for healthy outdoor activity for seniors/elders. Take an early morning walk with friends and breathe in the fresh air to clean your lungs and relax the body. Fresh air is proven to improve blood pressure and heart rate, and improves digestion. Don’t forget to drink water to stay hydrated and slather on the sunscreen liberally. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear to prevent falls and ensure safety. It is also very important for our seniors and elders to warm up and stretch after any activity to lower risk of injury.

Take advantage of the many fresh vegetables and fruit in the market at springtime and fill your diet with colorful fruit and vegetables and other fiber rich foods.

Most importantly, always discuss with your doctor before you start on a new health regimen to know what activity level and diet is right for you.

ApnaCare can help your family get world-class healthcare in India – whether it is dental care, vision care, preventive care, home nursing, or any other type of care.

 It is very important for the family, patient as well as caregivers to chalk out a synchronized coping strategy. Developing a routine for the patient, encouraging them to handle one thing at a time, avoiding situations or actions with the help of them, that cause them stress, are some examples for Senior people. Encouraging patients to be active and engaged, mentally as well as socially, talking to them openly about their concerns and fears, giving support, have been shown to be effective in managing the condition and slowing down decline in mental faculty. Family members must encourage their loved one to be independent wherever possible so that they feel that they still have a sense of control over their life.
