Sally Dimond from Matrix Medical

Let’s make 2015 the year where our resolutions finally stick. Here are some valuable tips from Matrix Medical Network, providing free health assessments by Nurse Practitioners for eligible seniors, on how to have a healthy and happy 2015.

EXERCISE IS KEY
• Visit Your Doctor: Before starting an exercise program, it is important to get the “okay” from your physician.
• Set Goals: Start off slow to build up to 30 minutes of exercise, 5 days a week.Untitled-1
• Pay Attention to Your Body: It’s important that you listen to your body and not overdo it.
• Adjust Your Work Out: If you notice shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, or even tender joints, you may want to touch base with your doctor.

PROPER PORTIONS
• Plate Size: Try using a smaller plate for your food.
• Don’t Rush: Sit down and eat your food slowly.

MENTAL WELLNESS
• Keep Your Mind Active: Maintain intellectual and social stimulation such as discussion groups and card games.
• Talk to a Trained Professional: Depression among older adults is very common. Talking to a counselor or psychologist is a good resource to find ways to deal with daily stress.
Matrix Medical Network provides in-home care using board-certified, local nurse practitioners to visit eligible health plan members nationwide at no cost to them. Providing in-home care helps to address health needs from medication adherence to environmental factors that impact overall wellbeing. Matrix strives to make healthcare more affordable and convenient, while also maintaining the highest quality of care.

From Dream to Reality With My Social Security

Filed under: senior living guide,Seniors — seniorlivingguide @ 12:51 pm

By Michael W. GrochowskiUntitled-1

Social Security Regional Commissioner in Atlanta

 

In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke about his dream of an America where equality was more than a concept—where it was an everyday reality.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”

His dream struck a chord with many people and inspired a nation. It shined a light on the ideal that every citizen should have equal opportunity to prosper and succeed.

As we remember Dr. King and his dream for America, take a moment to reflect on your dreams for yourself and your family. What are the things that you want for your future? Do you see yourself enjoying retirement someday?

With some planning, that dream can come true. The best way to keep your retirement dreams on track is by opening a my Social Security account. A my Social Security account is an excellent tool that helps you plan for the future. It lets you verify your earnings on your personal Social Security Statement—because your future retirement benefit depends on your earnings throughout your career. You can view your Statement at any time, giving you a good picture of what your future benefits will be. When you are ready to retire, you can even go online to apply for benefits from your home or office.

And the advantages of having a my Social Security account don’t stop after you retire. Once you start receiving benefits, you can manage them with a my Social Security account. You can get an instant benefit verification letter, check your benefit and payment information, change your address and phone number, and start or change your direct deposit information—all online.

Setting up a my Social Security account is quick, secure, and easy. Millions of Americans already have accounts. In fact, someone opens one about every 6 seconds. Join the crowd and sign up today at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.

It’s the stuff dreams are made of.

Dementia – The Journey Ahead by Susan Scarff

Filed under: seniorlivingguide — seniorlivingguide @ 12:09 pm

With the announcement of our FREE Advertising campaign beginning again, we were able to connect with an old friend, Susan Scarff. Susan contacted us last year during the campaign and we built her a free ad and created a banner for her that appears in every search results page on SeniorLivingGuide.com. Why such valued placement? Because we feel her book could really benefit so many of our users, in every market we service.

From Susan’s website (http://www.dementiathejourneyahead.com/) -

coverWithin a year of receiving her husband’s diagnosis, Susan Kiser Scarff had a classic case of caregiver burnout. She couldn’t concentrate at work. Friends drifted away. Overwhelmed, she struggled to make the transition from Red’s wife to his protector, nurse, and mother.

Experts predict that the current number of dementia sufferers—six to eight million in the United States alone—will continue to double every twenty years. In 2011, the Alzheimer’s Association estimated that up to 15 million unpaid caregivers reside in the United States alone. These are staggering numbers, made more so by the increasing age of the baby boomer generation; chances are, the number of family caregivers will increase, too.

Susan’s experience as a first-time caregiver, recorded in these pages with grace, wisdom, and humor, prove just how much there is to learn: finances have to be handled a different way in case the patient decides to make a lone trip to the bank; aggressive behavior is a constant threat; safety becomes a concern in every aspect of daily living.

Filled with practical advice for every stage of the disease’s progression, including information on support groups to help you prevent burnout, questionnaires designed to keep your loved one safe, and checklists to give you control in this time of unknowns, Dementia: The Journey Ahead will help you help your loved one—every step of the way.

Check out her free ad on SeniorLivingGuide.com, complete with links to her site and Facebook page, and be on the lookout for her banner advertisement located on the search results page of SeniorLivingGuide.com!
