Element Care Announces Top 12 Ways to Support Healthy Aging for Older Adults
Lynn, MA – September 15th, 2020 – Element Care, a non-profit, health care organization serving adults 55 and older through its Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), has released its Top 12 Ways to Support Healthy Aging for Older Adults. This list was created to help older adults age well so they can continue to live independently and to build awareness for National PACE Month and National Healthy Aging Month, both of which are celebrated in September. Among the top 12 items included on the list are:
• Get your immunizations. Get ready for flu season! Make sure to get your annual flu shot and other vaccinations for shingles, pneumonia, etc.
• Be Mindful of Your Medications. Remembering to take all your medications can be challenging, especially if like many older adults you take many medications each day. Taking too many or too few of your medications can put you at risk for dizziness, falls or other serious side effects so it is important to use a system such as a 7-day medication planner to ensure that you take all your meds every day.
• Consider using telehealth tools to stay safe. With the onset of COVID-19, telehealth tools have been growing in popularity. See if your provider offers these convenient, fast and safe ways to see your doctor and other clinical professionals.
“The mission of Element Care PACE is to help people live safely and comfortably in their homes and their communities for as long as they can, keeping their stays in hospitals and nursing facilities as minimal as possible,” said Nick Pappas, Director of Sales and Marketing at Element Care. “This list of ways to support healthy aging for older adults provides a good reminder of some easy things people can do to maintain their health so they can remain independent and enjoy their golden years.”
