What are some health issues seniors face?

As our parents and grandparents get older, different challenges start to present themselves. Many times they lose mobility and find themselves spending more time indoors. Additionally, they become much more prone to disease. Colds are harder to avoid and pneumonia is one of the leading causes of death among the elderly. Luckily, there are precautions we can help them take to reduce their risk of colds and other respiratory ailments.

Indoor air can be 5-10 times worse than the quality of the air outside. That’s a scary thing when your loved one finds themselves spending 90% of their time indoors; usually within the same two rooms of their home. Visiting with them becomes a two-fold issue – helping to take care of them on one hand, and being able to enjoy your time during the visit, on the other.

My parents are getting to this age, but don’t always accept the notion that I could know more than they do regarding this topic.

The headaches, the allergies, the stuffiness… all things that an air purifier can help with. Whenever I try to explain this to them, I find it funny to hear their words, “because I said so” echoing back to them. But I know that breathing fresh air can help your lungs dilate more fully, increase your oxygen intake, and give you a boost of energy! By breathing in fresh air, they are giving their body the fuel it needs to stay healthy and active!

Seniors typically have concerns about getting ill, but there are a fair amount of measures they can implement to keep as healthy as possible. Everyone knows that as people age, their health starts to deteriorate. Like individuals at any age, the elderly should maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Yet, another effective and simple step would be to acquire an air purifier. You will get to breathe healthier air if you are using an air purifier in your house or room.”1

Running an air purifier 24/7 on low speed helps keep the air in their home cleaner and healthier, resulting in a big difference with one easy step. Because our aging parents and grandparents aren’t moving around as much as they used to, and don’t have as many commitments outside their homes, it’s more important than ever to ensure their environment is as healthy as it can be.
