Senior Health Care SolutionsĀ – What You can Do

  • Maintain proper weight for your body
  • Active social life with friends and groups
  • Keep up with friends
  • Ask for help when needed from family and professional groups

Tailored Exercise Program – age, ability, and general health will dictate what you can do and how aggressively you follow your exercise regime. The point is to get out there and run, walk, stroll, play sports, take up golf or whatever you enjoy, just get moving for at least 15 minutes every day. You need to get your heart rate up and increase your breathing rate to get any real benefit.

  1. With my gluten intcrelanoe, I feel the same way, although I rarely travel any place that takes so long that I necessarily have to eat. A trip to Europe would be a different story altogether. Generally I buy stuff on the other side of security if I want to take it on the plane with me, like salads or fruit. But even then, you can never be sure what will be offered, or if it is truly free of the offending ingredients. I have never heard of TSA stopping someone from bringing a sandwich on flight.
