#WednesdayWisdom. The responsibility of advocating for older adults in the complicated sphere of medicine often falls on their adult children, who know their parent’s history and present needs better than most.

These family caregivers can see the whole picture, everything from dietary preferences and habits to the subtle ways they respond to new medications. Caregivers are not just acting as an extension of a loved one’s interests; they also serve as an extended lens for medical professionals into your parent’s life.⁠

#TuesdayTip. Did you know that friendships are critical to the aging process? Seniors get more out of socializing than just a few extra years of life.

Friendships and activities reduce stress, help people feel worthy and needed, and stimulate the mind. According to a report in the Annals of Internal Medicine, strong social contacts offer powerful protection against the mental declines that often accompany aging. Having solid friendships can also add years to one's life.⁠

💜#WorldAlzheimersDay is a day dedicated to raising awareness of a disease that affects over 5 million Americans. Diagnoses of Alzheimer's Disease are increasing at an exponential rate. Not only does early detection improve quality of life, but it can also significantly reduce the costs associated with Alzheimer's disease treatment.

Early signs of Alzheimer's include memory loss, difficulty planning or solving confusion with place or time, and change in behavior or personality. It progressively makes it more difficult for the person to function independently and safely.

Perhaps you are concerned about your grandmother, and her silence could indicate that she is at ease or that she is bored. On some days, relish the silence because she is content and smiling; on others, you dread it because it is out of character for her, and you miss her s***k.

Perhaps you are a caregiver for a child with a disability, in which case silence is a rarity! Maybe a moment of silence provides a reprieve from having to answer questions and explain each response, but it may also arouse your concern.

Or perhaps you're a spousal caregiver, and the silence is swollen by the unspoken what you desire for your marriage, what you want for your spouse. Alternatively, as Leonard Nimoy put it, the silence between you two may be a moment "rich with peace." Accepting that your love story is unique and that the care you provide is your love language.

#FridayFact. 33% OF THE ELDERLY FALL EACH YEAR! ⁠

As daunting as this statistic is, it doesn't consider the psychological effects of a fall. Seniors who fall can become more afraid of falling, and this fear can reduce their quality of life and their ability to exercise correctly.

Reduced physical activity can then lead to a vicious cycle in which an older person's physical condition deteriorates, increasing the risk of falling even more and further curtailing the victim's independence and quality of life. For these reasons and others, fall prevention is an essential component of senior care.⁠
