How Seniors Can Improve Their Balance

Seniors love their independence, but it's no secret that they're afraid of falling. And rightfully so.

Furthermore, the CDC and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control found that, "Falls among adults aged 65 and older are common, costly, and preventable. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults." Also, according to the National Library of Medicine, "As we age, we lose balance function through loss of sensory elements, the ability to [...]

Healthy Senior Living in Torrance and the South Bay

One of the best things people do for their health is exercise. For older adults, it has been shown that exercise helps with chronic disease prevention, mental health and cognitive function improvement and more. Benefits from exercise usually come with consistent participation. Seniors may find some exercises a bit too strenuous for them but there are low-impact exercises available that they can readily practice like Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi: Yoga will help to build muscle, stabilize your core, improve flexibility, balance and strengthen bones but won’t strain your joints. The beauty of yoga is that even if some poses [...]

Rebecca Perez Named This Quarter’s Outstanding Care Award Recipient

"It Was a Dark and Stormy Night." No, this isn’t a story written by Snoopy. But it is a story of Rebecca’s first shift as a caregiver with A Peaceful Way Home Care in Rolling Hills Estates in January 2019. And it was a dark, stormy, and windy night. Rebecca’s first case was on the Palos Verdes hill near Malaga Cove where there is limited street lighting. In addition to the weather, it was pitch dark early that evening since daylight saving time had ended. Cellular service can also be spotty on the hill and [...]

Osteoporosis and Hormone Changes

Osteoporosis is a condition that can be brought on by the hormonal imbalances that the aging process brings. It weakens the skeletal system over time by thinning the body's bone density. Your loved one won't likely know that they have this condition (or realize its severity) until a bone density scan turns up issues -- and that's usually after a minor or major injury has already taken place. One of the most difficult issues with this disease is that there are really no symptoms -- until a bone breaks. It's a sneaky diagnosis that can silently steal your loved one's [...]

Palos Verdes Seniors Respite Care

Being a primary family caregiver is rewarding, but it’s also incredibly challenging at times. It can be tricky to always be available when your senior loved one needs you, especially when you're trying to manage your own home, juggling your own medical appointments, trying to spend time with children, or if you haven't retired yet. You're starting to feel a bit resentful since you can't take breaks. Also, who could look in on your loved one if your own medical conditions or even a COVID-19 infection thwarted your efforts to help that loved one for several days -- or even [...]
