Fact or Fiction? “Exercising is dangerous as I get older, so I should just take it easy.” Answer: FICTION, of course!

Studies have shown that regular exercise can improve health for seniors by:

  • Improving balance and preventing falls
  • Strengthening muscles and improving endurance
  • Relieving depression and improving mood
  • Preventing some types of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes

Extra living assistance after surgery or cancer recovery

Visiting Angels - In-Home Care PatientsThey say aging isn’t for the faint of heart. But we all tend to do it – age, that is. And as we do, our bodies are susceptible to a variety of diseases we didn’t worry about when we were younger.  Now they hover on our horizon.

Did you know that ninety percent of colorectal cancer cases are discovered in patients over the age of fifty? Colon cancer affects both men and women and accounts for nearly ten percent of the annual cancer-related deaths in the U.S.

The good news is that there are more ways than ever to treat colorectal cancer today. As with the majority of cancers, the earlier it is discovered, the more likely treatment will be successful.  In fact, with early detection, colon cancer is nearly ninety percent curable, which makes screenings vital. Talk with your doctor about screening today.

Another important piece of good news is that many cancer survivors are over age 65. Screening and effective treatment for cancer allow us to return to living out a wonderful life at home.
