Balance and flexibility are A Great Tool for Every Golfer

Balance and flexibility are A Great Tool for Every Golfer

The average golfer will roll up to the course just before tee time. Hit some golf balls. Play 18 holes. And then is perplexed they feel tight during and after the round. Does this routine sound familiar? If you’re like most golfers, you probably know how important flexibility is to the swing. Even tour players from Adam Scott to Tiger Woods have pre-round stretching routines to get their bodies ready to play. It’s not just your flexibility but also your posture that makes a difference. Posture is how your body is balanced from left to right, anterior and posterior. In all great machines for perfect performance, you must keep the machine balanced. The same goes for your body! If you weren’t born with fantastic flexibility or happen to be a weekend warrior who sits from 9-5 every day, you probably could use an exercise and stretch routine to help you improve your flexibility both before a round and on a regular basis. Enter Fitworks Perfect Posture® Natural Pain Solutions, a personalized program...

A great option for short term care

A great option for short term care

Being a caregiver can be hard.  In fact, we all burn out at some point and will need a break.  When a primary caregiver needs a break, respite care can provide short-term relief.  Respite care is basically time off so that the primary caregivers can get away from their responsibilities for physical and emotional relief.  Respite can be arranged for a few hours, several days, or even weeks.  Respite care can be done in different settings:  at home, in a nursing home, or at an assisted living facility. How much does respite care cost? Respite services charge by the hour or by the number of days that services are provided. Most insurance plans do not cover these costs.  You must pay all costs yourself that are not covered by insurance or other funding sources.  If you choose respite in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility, a nursing home,  then Medicare will pay only five days in a row. Majestic Gardens Living provides...

This is why we are unapologetically thankful

This is why we are unapologetically thankful

| Written by Andrew Wommack | This Thanksgiving, I am proclaiming to the world that I am unapologetically thankful to God for this great nation of the United States of America. Woke culture, cancel culture, and Critical Race Theory says America is “systemically racist.” I say just the opposite. America is systemically anti-racist. Human nature is “systemically” racist, not only on the basis of ethnicity but on many levels. Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Racism is not American or even black on white. To quote my good friend, E.W. Jackson, “It’s not the skin; it’s sin.” Sin knows no national boundaries nor is it limited to any one ethnic group. When the American colonies sought their independence from Great Britain, there was not a nation on the earth that did not practice slavery. The whole world had fallen so far from what God intended us to be that slavery was universal....

How to help a loved one affected by COVID-19

How to help a loved one affected by COVID-19

Covid-19 affected everyone in the new United States. Feelings of uncertainty regarding the effects of being infected, transmission to others, quarantine and isolation recommendations, and vaccines affected us all. But no group may have been impacted more than seniors. And as pandemic restrictions begin to ease in the U.S., many seniors will likely have new questions about what is and isn’t allowed. Many would like to revisit with friends and family and lend a helping hand in any way possible, especially when it comes to helping those that have been affected by Covid-19. Know the Difference Between Quarantine and Isolation The CDC recommends people quarantine if they have been within 6 feet of someone who has Covid-19 unless they have been fully vaccinated. Despite being fully vaccinated you may still contract the disease and will need to quarantine if you have any symptoms or test positive within 5 to 7 days after exposure. If you are not fully vaccinated and have been...

The fight against diabetes starts with awareness

The fight against diabetes starts with awareness

More than 100 million Americans have a high risk of developing diabetes or already have been diagnosed with the condition. Due to such a high number of the population being exposed to the early development of the disease, you may already know someone that has it or you may have received the diagnosis yourself. There are various things that you may not have known about the condition itself. Did you know that you can have diabetes or even prediabetes and not know it? Increasing awareness is of growing importance because diabetes when uncontrolled can affect different aspects of your health. You may not have known that diabetes can affect your dental and skin health. Your digestive health is also at stake because the condition can damage the nerves that control how food moves throughout your intestines. You may also be at significant risk for a stroke, high cholesterol, or heart disease because of the condition and if you weren't already aware, high...

Happy Veterans Day to our Nation’s Heroes

Happy Veterans Day to our Nation’s Heroes

Happy Veterans Day from our team at OurSeniors.net! We are grateful to the men and women who have proudly served in the U.S. military. Our team would also like to thank the soldiers who are currently serving our nation. As many of us may know, Veterans Day started when World War I ended and fighting ceased with an armistice between Allied nations and Germany. It happened on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Although it initially was meant to honor those veterans of World War I, it turned into an observance day for all those who have fought toward the effort of peace during war. OurSeniors.net has found it important throughout the years to ensure our veterans are always honored and taken care of. What we like to do is team up with organizations that focus on veterans’ services so our senior veterans know what benefits can be provided to them....

Cooking every day can be complicated, meal delivery services are not

Cooking every day can be complicated, meal delivery services are not

One of the biggest challenges faced by many seniors is the task of daily meal preparation. It is not uncommon to find a senior who has resorted to eating breakfast cereal or some other very basic food at every meal. Planning, shopping for, storing and preparing a balanced meal can be a complicated task, even for seniors who are physically up to the job. Sometimes, this seems so troublesome that seniors simply give up and skip regular meals. If you or a senior loved one has difficulty getting “three squares” a day, a meal delivery service may be a solution. Senior meal delivery or food delivery services may help to fill in gaps in nutrition and save preparation time, making it possible for a senior to remain at home. If you are thinking about this possibility for yourself or a loved one, here are some things to keep in mind: Think about the budget. The costs of these services vary from basically...

How to Phase-In Healthy Visits with Relatives and Friends

How to Phase-In Healthy Visits with Relatives and Friends

In the early weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was a lot of conflicting information that created a lot of confusion about safety. Many people know about the benefits of spending time outdoors, but there was a sudden urgency from warnings suggesting that people should stay indoors for safety. As the months passed, we learned precisely how to change habits to stay safe and help stop the spread of the disease which quickly impacted thousands of Americans. Nearly two years since the pandemic arrived in the U.S., people are returning to normalcy. However, there are still numerous questions about phasing in specific activities such as visiting relatives and friends. We will address some of those questions here. According to the Centers for the Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s okay for people that are fully vaccinated to return to do most of the activities they were not able to do at the height of the pandemic. This includes visiting friends and family....
