Pioneer HomeCare Updates Health Talk Topic : Breast Exam and Pap Smear for Cancer Screening in Women A breast and pap smear exam is typically included in a Well Woman Exam. These tests are done for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer. The tests are administered by a licensed professional provider. Breast exams for women should be done at least every 3 years starting at age 20 and every year starting at age 40. It is recommended that you have more frequent breast exams if your family has a history of breast cancer. This exam is best performed after your monthly menstrual cycle as your breasts will not be tender or swollen. Your health care provider will examine your breasts in order to detect lumps or other changes. Breast exams should also be performed along with mammography because these are methods that are needed for a complete breast cancer screening. A pap smear is a test for screening cervical cancer. It should be done first by age 21 or within 3 years after having first vaginal intercourse. Regular testing should be done because the examination will help identify if you are at high risk for having cervical cancer. Talk to your doctor about how often you should get a pap smear because it varies in different women based on age, health and previous pap smear exams.

5 tips for preventing cold in seniors: While seniors are less likely to get the common cold than children and other adults, if they do become sick, it can lead to more serious health issues and complications, That's why seniors should take precautions to prevent picking up viral or bacterial infections, especially over the cold and flu season. At-home senior care providers and their clients should follow these five cold prevention guidelines: 1. The best way to prevent colds is to wash your hands regularly throughout the day. Because bacteria lives on so many common household and personal items people come into contact with daily, it's important to keep hands clean to prevent that bacteria from causing an infection. You may also want to consider using hand sanitizer between washes. 2. Try to stay away from anyone who is displaying cold symptoms, like coughing, sniffling or sneezing. 3. Keep your body healthy and build your immune system by getting enough sleep, eating nutritious foods and staying active. 4. Consider a B12 shot, which can really help seniors' immune systems fight infections. 5. Try to relax and destress as much as you can. Stress can really affect your body's overall health and prevent your immune system from working effectively. PIONEER HOMECARE Pioneer HomeCare is the premier provider of home care services.

Knee Replacement Surgery Can Lead to Weight Gain: Artificial knees have helped seniors treat osteoarthritis and other similar conditions, but new research suggests it's important to remain active after the procedure. A study recently published in the journal Arthritis Care & Research found that knee replacement surgery is closely tied to weight gain, Reuters reports. The research analyzed the medical records of nearly 1, 000 patients from the Mayo Clinic. The team found that 30 percent of those who had the procedure gained approximately 5 percent of their body weight in the five years after surgery. Experts hope the findings are a clear message to patients and senior care providers to place an emphasis on staying active after surgery. "We need to encourage patients to take advantage of their ability to function better and get them to take on a more active lifestyle, " Joseph Zeni, a physical therapy professor at the University of Delaware, told Reuters. The weeks after knee replacement surgery are crucial, and it's up to both patients and those providing home care to ensure the treatment is as successful as possible. Surgeons will offer strict orders on what to follow in terms of diet, while physical therapists will provide advice on exercises. According to the Mayo Clinic, the therapy usually starts off with a graduated walking program before resuming normal household activities. Additionally, leg strengthening exercises performed several times a day can avoid the common weight gain and help seniors quickly get back to normal.

The Most Important Nutrients for Seniors: Proper nutrition is important at any age, but for seniors it can play an even bigger role in overall health. Including the right foods in an older adult's diet is a critical aspect of senior care, because not getting the right nutrients can not only make it difficult to manage certain chronic conditions, but it also may put seniors at a greater risk for fatigue and other maladies. Meal preparation is often a cornerstone of senior care, and there are a few things that should be taken into consideration when crafting a senior's healthy diet. Perhaps most importantly, caregivers should make a point to limit the sodium content of their patients' food. Keeping sodium content low will help seniors manage their blood pressure, which is often one of the greatest risk factors for cardiovascular conditions such as heart disease and stroke. To avoid high-sodium foods, caregivers should focus on fruits and vegetables. It's also important for seniors to eat nutrient-dense foods. Some of the best nutrients include calcium, vitamin D and potassium, but omega-3 fatty acids may offer the most benefits. Commonly found in fish, but also present in kidney beans, flaxseed and spinach, the nutrient has been tied to everything from better heart health to improved cognitive function. Eating the right foods is key to senior health for many reasons. According to the National Institutes of Health, a healthy diet will provide seniors with more energy and help them stave off diseases.
