Balancing Being a Caregiver and a Spouse

As couples age, it would be convenient if aging occurred at a similar pace. Unfortunately, that is more than often not the case, and as a result, one spouse may need to fill the role of spouse and caregiver. This new role can quickly become overwhelming as often the other spouse has a chronic condition that will remain with them for the rest of their life, and without help, the toll it takes on the healthier spouse can easily lead to their decline.

Visiting a Museum Could Improve Your Health

As adults continue to age and enter into their retirement years, there’s a lot of emphasis on the importance of staying busy. Being an active older adult, whether this means going out to dinner with friends or taking a walk each morning, has been linked to decreasing the risk of depression and isolation while increasing cognitive health. While any type of activity is beneficial, new research suggests that visiting a museum might help you live longer.

How to Cope with Losing a Parent to Memory Loss

As your parents age, it’s not uncommon for them to experience forgetfulness, like momentarily misplacing keys or having trouble remembering the date of their next hair appointment. However, some older adults might experience a more severe type of memory loss, which is not a normal part of aging. Nearly 10 to 20 percent of older adults age 65 and older have been diagnosed with some kind of mild cognitive impairment, while 10 percent are diagnosed with long-term memory loss, such as Alzheimer’s. While experiencing longer memory recall can be a normal part of aging, those who suffer from long-term memory loss often lose the ability to recall memories completely.
