There’s no getting around it – as we age, our bodies and minds change. There are things you can do to stay healthy and active as you age such as:
- Eat a balanced diet
- Keep Hydrated
- Keep your mind and body active
- Don’t smoke
- Get regular exercise
- Have proactive safety habits to avoid accidents and prevent falls
Being physically active on a regular basis can help us maintain health and well-being, avoid illness and disease, and live longer. Physical activity is good for everyone’s health, people of all ages and body types can be physically active.
In celebration of Senior Citizen Day, participate in local activities to help promote active, healthy lifestyles through physical activity, good nutrition, and preventative care as you recognize the contributions and wisdom seniors bring to our communities.
Celebrating Active Aging – August 21st
Senior Citizens Day was established by President Reagan in 1988. “Throughout our history, older people have achieved much for our families, our community, and our country,” President Reagan said in Proclamation 5847. And Granny NANNIES couldn’t agree more! Today’s older population is the most active group of seniors in history, many of whom are determined to stay relevant at work, connected with friends and families.
For nearly 30 years, Granny NANNIES has referred professional care providers who have brought compassion, comfort, and expert care to clients who are able to remain at home while surrounded by the people and things they love.
If you or a loved one need assistance with activities of daily living or help in monitoring other health concerns, CNAs and HHAs are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week for all ages and levels of care. Granny NANNIES believes in treating clients with the highest level of respect and dignity and maintains the commitment to excellence that it was founded upon in 1990.
