Pioneer Home Care Health Updates Common Age-Related Eye Diseases : A large portion of the baby boomer population is beginning to get older and develop age-related eye diseases. Millions are already struggling with an eye disease and about 25 million people over the age of 40 have cataracts while another 2.5 million suffer from glaucoma. It isn't uncommon for eye diseases to seemingly appear out of nowhere, so if you or your loved one develop one of these inconvenient conditions, Pioneer Home Care in-home senior care can provide help. Cataracts are the most common eye disease and, unfortunately, there is no cure. The only way to effectively treat cataracts is surgery. After an individual turns 40, clumps of protein can form in the lens of the eye and cause a cloudy look, leading to loss of vision that glasses and eyewear cannot correct. Glaucoma is another common age-related eye condition and the risk increases for those over age 45. Those who have a family history of the disease, are nearsighted or farsighted, have diabetes, get migraines or have low blood pressure are at even greater risk. Treatment for glaucoma includes using eye drops to lower pressure and surgery is sometimes used to create a better flow of fluid out of the eye. People between the ages of 40 and 54 should have an eye exam every 2 to 4 years while those ages 55 and up should schedule those annually or every two to three years.

Pioneer Home Care Health Updates 4 Tips For Preventing Breast Cancer: Although thousands of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the next year, there are things you can do that may decrease your chances of being one of them. While there may be no way to completely rule out your chances of developing breast cancer, there are some lifestyle changes you can make to help lower the risk. Make sure you're getting plenty of sleep each night. According to AARP, postmenopausal women who get less than six hours of sleep each night have double the chance of developing more aggressive breast cancer. If you're overweight, try dropping a few pounds. It's well known that women who are overweight have a greater chance of developing hormone receptor-positive breast cancer than those who are not. Just by being obese you increase your risk of breast cancer by 30 percent. According to the American Cancer Society, having more than one drink per day can up your chances of breast cancer. Even having two drinks a day can raise your odds by 21 percent and regular drinking in postmenopausal women will increase your risk of cancer by 19 percent. Exercise is a good way to help prevent breast cancer. Whether it's walking, working in the garden or cleaning the house, getting up and moving can result in a 30 percent reduced risk.

Helping Seniors Celebrate the Holidays : The holidays are supposed to be a time for celebration and happiness, but for seniors who live independently, that may not always be the case. However, that's not to say that family members and senior care providers can take steps to help bring some holiday cheer to seniors who live by themselves. The most important thing is for family members to make sure to spend plenty of time with their elderly relatives. Of course, this is important during the rest of the year, but once the holidays roll around, why not spend time with them cooking or decorating? If this is the first year a senior relative has lived independently, whether due to the death of a spouse or if they moved to a nursing home, family caregivers may want to think about switching up traditions. For instance, if the holiday celebration was always at the senior's house, it may be a better idea to change locations, so your elderly relative can enjoy the benefits of the holidays without having to stress about hosting. While it can be difficult to include an elderly loved one in every aspect of holiday party planning, especially if they have issues with mobility or other health concerns, what is the most important is that they are with family members.
