Seniors: The Importance of Eliminating or Preventing Obesity

Obesity is a challenge for any segment of the population, but it is of special concern to seniors. Coupled with the possible existence of other issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, etc., obesity works against the senior in limiting their range of motion and their ability to be active. Physical activity helps lessen the affects of many chronic conditions, and of course, helps to ease obesity, but with the loss of muscle mass as people age, this becomes more and more difficult.

It’s been estimated that 3 out of 4 men over the age of 64 is obese, and over 6 out of 10 women are either overweight or obese in the same age category. Being overweight or obese increases the odds of developing chronic issues so it’s important that people start as early as possible (and it’s never too late to start!) to maintain a healthy body weight. In addition to this, the families of obese seniors often have a difficult time caring for them, or moving them around, which may make assisted living a necessity before the senior is ready for it.

Issues that Obesity Can Create-

Obesity is a problem all its own, with causing the individual to be sedentary because it’s more difficult for them to move, but it also has a hand in creating these issues:

  • Certain cancers
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Gallstones and Gallbladder disease
  • Gout
  • Breathing problems: asthma, sleep apnea, etc.


Physical Activities Often Available to Seniors-

  • Swimming
  • Bike riding
  • Walking/non-vigorous jogging
  • Aerobics
  • Water aerobics
  • Yoga
  • Gardening

In addition to physical activity, it’s also important for seniors to practice nutritious eating habits. As people age, their nutritional needs change, and depending on the existence of certain issues, your doctor may have a specific diet plan in mind, so discuss this with your doctor, first.

Always Best Care has been providing exceptional and compassionate in-home care to seniors in the United States and Canada for the past 20 years. If you live in the Greater Cleveland area, and are interested in finding out more about in-home care in Lorain, or in-home care in Grafton, you can contact the Always Best Care Grafton location at 440-791-7177 or email them at jbechtold@abc-seniors.com and schedule a free consultation.

Looking for Information on Senior Assisted Living? Contact Always Best Care

Always Best Care Senior Services has provided over 25,000 seniors the gift of compassionate care giving since 1996. During that 20 year time period, Always Best Care has become a well-known name in the senior care industry, as they provide only the most compassionate and skilled caregivers to their senior clients.

ABC provides in-home senior care for seniors who need and want some assistance with daily living items. Whether it’s for two hours, or up to 24, ABC caregivers are not only compassionate, they are also bonded, insured, undergo thorough criminal background checks, and are CPR and first-aid certified. They are happy to take on the role of compassionate caregiver and enjoy helping their senior clients throughout the day with items such as helping with pets, water plants, preparing meals, lively conversation with the senior, assisting with walking, etc., whatever the senior’s Care Plan has outlined, these caregivers are dedicated and caring.

Another service that Always Best Care provides is information on senior assisted living. Sometimes, instead of an in-home care provider, the senior will instead prefer to move into an assisted living community. With many of these facilities located around the country, it can be a daunting and overwhelming task to determine the best match for the senior. That’s where ABC comes in; their Care Providers can discuss all of the communities in the area (or the area of your choosing) and even accompany you to tour one of the communities.

There are several different types of senior assisted living communities and some of them include residential care homes, Alzheimer’s and dementia care communities, retirement communities, etc. The Care Provider will look at the individual’s preferences and budget to determine the best assisted living community for them, with no obligation. The best part is, there is no cost associated with this for the senior because the costs are absorbed by the community that is ultimately chosen.

If you are interested in interviewing caregivers in the Grafton, OH area for possible in-home care services, or wish to speak to a Care Provider regarding senior assisted living in Grafton, call (440) 791-7177 today for more information.
