February is all about hearts, as we honor those who have captured our hearts on Valentine’s Day. February is also American Heart Month. As one of the top providers of elderly home care in Delaware County, we recognize (as does the CDC) that heart disease is the number one cause of death for those over 65. Healthy eating is a big part of fighting heart disease, for the old as well as the young. Encouraging your loved ones -and yourself- to eat heart-healthy foods can allow a long lifetime of love in return. With this in mind, Neighborly Home Care offers a list of 14 heart-healthy foods for seniors.
Finally, remember the other things that contribute to a healthy heart: Make time for exercise. Enjoy loving companionship. Avoid smoking and only drink alcohol in moderation. All of these suggestions are aspects we focus on for elderly home care in Delaware County, and we hope you will encourage them for your loved ones as well.
Neighborly Home Care provides skilled elderly home care in Bryn Mawr, Ardmore and all of the Main Line Communities. We care about our elderly and hope you find our list of heart-healthy foods for seniors helpful. If you need information about in home care options, please contact the team at Neighborly Home Care.
