Elderly Clients:

In the UK today, life expectancy may have increased but that doesn’t always mean that the quality of life is as good as it can be. Here are 3 Top tips for elderly people to ensure a good quality of life.

1: Oily fish: Older people of all ages should aim to eat two portions of oily fish a week. A good quality supplement can help in achieving this. Oily fish contain omega 3 fatty acids that can help to protect against heart disease. This is also very Important for those who may have had a heart attack.

2: Physical activity: Essential for maintaining and building strength and mobility especially those who have had joint replacements. A good recommendation is 30 minutes exercise, 3-5 times a week. This is great for increasing and maintaining fitness, something which we can lose as we get older. Walking is an excellent option and something we need to do to complete everyday tasks anyway.

Healthy digestion: A number of older people can experience constipation on an all too regular basis. A few key areas that you can focus on to improve this are, increasing intake of water, dietary fibre (beans, vegetables and fruits) and also an increase in exercise will help too.
