Healthy joints are important for better mobility. But with ageing, the lubricating fluid inside the joints decreases, thus leading to joint stiffness. Here we discuss some useful tips that can help you keep your joints healthy.  Be active regularly  Being active has been proven to be beneficial in improving the functioning of joints in seniors. Multiple studies have shown that people who do moderate exercise on a regular basis have a reduced risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis. Low-intensity workouts such as walking, light jogging, swimming, yoga, and cycling can help seniors increase their range of motion. Also, regular exercise improves mobility and bone density.  Listen to your body There will be days when you feel sore and worn out. Do not overexert yourself – pay attention to your body’s warning signs and take a break for a few days.  Maintain right body posture Always maintain the right body posture while sitting. Always sit and stand upright. While working out, do not repeat the same movements every day. It may hurt the joints and make the pain worse.  Maintain a healthy weight Excess weight can put extra pressure on the weight-bearing joints, particularly, the hips, knees, and spine. Those who are overweight are more likely to develop arthritis compared to those who maintain a healthy weight.  Add anti-inflammatory foods to your diet  Having a well-balanced diet that contains fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains, can be good for your joints as well as health. Adding anti-inflammatory spices and herbs such as turmeric, basil, cumin, rosemary and ginger, can be beneficial. Choose plant protein sources such as legumes, nuts, seeds, and avocado to provide essential nutrients to your joints. Here is a useful read on food items that support joint health.  Note: The arthritis-affected joints are weak and prone to injuries. Therefore, it is important to take a few extra measures to protect them. Before starting a new exercise regimen, talk to your doctor and physiotherapist.  To increase your fitness in a welcoming and supportive environment, join a senior-friendly gym or a health club. At our retirement homes in Chennai –  Serene Pushkar and Serene Adinath– we have senior-friendly gyms, daily yoga classes, and a calendar filled with engaging activities that will help you stay socially and physically active.  For the average monthly cost of a retirement home, call us at +91 8884555554.

Starting Over for Seniors: Useful Tips by One of the Leading Senior Citizen Homes in India

September 11, 2021

Categories : Senior Living Tips

senior citizen homes in India

Reaching retirement age comes with a mixed bag of emotions. There is a sense of relief that you can finally enjoy an exciting phase of life and gain new experiences. However, with no professional commitments, the feeling of not having a schedule can be daunting. Many seniors feel stressed when they suddenly have all the time in the world. However, with a little bit of planning, seniors can feel as if they are starting their life all over again. As one of the leading senior citizen homes in India,  we share with you some useful tips on starting over after retirement:   Never stop learning: The best way to move forward in life is to keep learning. You can explore a new hobby or pursue old hobbies. Stay busy with a meaningful activity that provides you a sense of purpose and makes you feel productive.  One of the best ways to get started is to join group classes where you will meet people who share similar interests as you. Group sessions are a great way to socialise, meet people, gain confidence, and learn.    Stay socially connected: With children settled and no 9-to-5 commitments, loneliness can slowly become a part of ageing. When you retire, you lose social connections and may start to feel isolated, which can have adverse effects on your mental and physical health. It has been found that loneliness can be worse for your health than obesity and high blood pressure.    To start afresh, make new social connections. Sign up for volunteering opportunities, invite neighbours or connect with your existing friends. Schedule a part of your day to build and nurture social connections. You can make phone calls, have coffee with neighbours, or have lunch with your former colleagues.    Replace your previous work routine with a new routine: With no daily commitments, you can lose structure and routine from your day. To enjoy a satisfying and fulfilling life, you need to replace the old routine with a new one that is packed with new interests, activities, and social commitments.    Having a routine helps you lead an organised life. However, when you make a new routine, be serious about it and stick to it.    Set new goals: Create a bucket list of activities that you wish to complete or a creative project you want to start. By creating a list you will push yourself out of your comfort zone and explore things you never thought you would.    Stay healthy: When you are starting over, begin on a healthy note. From staying physically active and eating a well-balanced diet to improving your emotional well-being – make health a priority. Do not forget that staying healthy is your ticket to enjoying your life to the fullest.    As one of the leading senior citizen homes in India, we do not believe in the stereotypical retirement life. We have an active social calendar that helps our residents socialise, make new friends, and explore new interests.  We have 1 and 2 BHK independent senior living apartments as well as villas.

September 9, 2021

Categories : Senior Health Tips

retirement homes in Coimbatore

 “Yoga is a light, which once lit will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter your flame.” — B.K.S. Iyengar, Yoga guru         Yoga is one of the best forms of exercise for seniors. Being a low-impact exercise, yoga puts less strain on the joints but it strengthens muscles, improves heart health, posture, and breathing. It also has a positive impact on mood.  As one of the leading senior citizen homes in Coimbatore, we have curated a list of benefits of yoga for seniors:                                                                                                                        1. Yoga reduces stress: A regular yoga plan involves breathing and meditation techniques that can help reduce stress. Seniors can join a local yoga studio or practise by watching a yoga video at home. Note: An effective yoga regimen is stress-free. It improves blood circulation and boosts energy rather than depleting it. Yoga sessions should calm the nervous system rather than overstimulating it.  2. Yoga improves flexibility: Regular yoga practices improve muscular strength and flexibility. Committing to a daily yoga routine can help seniors increase their flexibility, balance, and strength.  3. Yoga is good for cardiovascular health: As per a study published in the International Journal of non-communicable Diseases, yoga is good for heart health. It may help lower blood cholesterol levels and blood pressure.  4. Yoga improves resilience: With regular dedicated practice, one becomes mentally strong. It promotes a calmer and stronger mental frame that can cope with the ups and downs of life. 5. Yoga lowers the risk of depression: Yoga is considered to be a mood booster. The combination of body movements and breathing techniques can induce a sense of well-being and raise serotonin (the happiness hormone) levels. Also, going to yoga classes gives seniors a chance to meet new people and make new friends. 6. Yoga improves concentration: While practising yoga poses and meditation techniques, seniors need to concentrate on their breathing. This process has a calming effect and helps them concentrate better and control their thoughts. Meditating for just a few minutes in the morning can help seniors recollect and retain more information throughout the day.  7. Yoga can alleviate pain: Yoga is helpful in easing chronic pain. Even if a senior has physical limitations, he or she can practice simple yoga postures to get relief from pain.   Note: If you are suffering from arthritis, you can practise yoga moves such as Cat pose (Marjaryasana) and Cow pose (Bitilasana). You can check this useful read on arthritis -friendly yoga poses.  8. Yoga can reduce insomnia: Relaxing yoga poses combined with deep breathing techniques help seniors sleep better. Asanas such as Utthan Pristhasana and Salabhasana promote better sleep.  9. Yoga strengthens lungs: Deep breathing techniques and simple asanas can improve the functioning of the lungs.   Note: A study found that pranayama exercises and asanas can improve lung functions and diffusion capacity in coronary artery disease patients.  10. Yoga improves immunity: Asanas such as Sasakasana, Kapalbhati Pranayama, and Trikonasana can boost the  immune system. 11. Yoga teaches self-discipline: By repeating patterns and sequences, one learns to maintain a sense of self-discipline, an important trait to lead a healthy life and accomplish retirement goals.  Our senior citizen homes in Coimbatore encourage residents to lead a physically active lifestyle. Mornings at our retirement homes start with yoga and meditation classes. A regular events calendar includes yoga classes, walkathons, and many other engaging activities that promote flexibility, strength, and fitness.

Insights for Seniors on Anti-Inflammatory Diet

September 7, 2021

Categories : Senior Health Tips

senior citizen homes in Chennai

Inflammation is your body’s response towards an injury or infection.  It is a necessary part of the body’s immune system. But when inflammation is out of control, it can damage the healthy tissues. To keep inflammation under control, it is important to follow a healthy lifestyle, shed excess pounds, and control high blood pressure.   The first step to begin a healthy lifestyle is to start following an anti-inflammatory diet. As one of the leading senior citizen homes in Chennai, we share with you a few insights on anti-inflammatory diet: 1. Eat a variety of vegetables and fruits If you are eating canned, packaged or preserved food, switch to fresh vegetables and fruits. Add salads and lightly steamed vegetables (you can season them with pepper, salt, and olive oil) to your daily meals. For desserts, switch from pastries, cakes, and gulab jamuns to fresh fruits.  Try to add antioxidant rich vegetables, fruits, and spices to your diet. For instance, turmeric and ginger have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and they are used generously in Indian recipes. You can also make lattes using turmeric, ginger, and coconut milk or add them to your juices and smoothies.  Also, berries, avocados, whole grains, and beans have antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.     Note: Antioxidants protect your body against any harmful effects of oxidative stress. Antioxidants come in many forms such as teas, foods, and vitamin supplements.  2. Try to get omega-3 fatty acids from foods rather than supplements Omega-3 fatty acids have enormous health benefits – they are good for cardiovascular health and can reduce inflammatory processes. Walnuts and pumpkin seeds are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats. Also, freshly ground flaxseeds contain omega-3 fats and a healthy dose of dietary fibre.  3. Drink more water  Your body needs enough water to detoxify. If your body is dehydrated, it cannot release harmful toxins and cellular waste products – which can cause inflammation. It is important to note that consumption of liquids such as soda, juices, tea and coffee cannot help your body to cleanse itself and they do not count towards your daily intake of water as they act as diuretics.  Note: In addition to drinking water, having broth and soups on a regular basis can hydrate your body.  4. Identify foods that are not good for your body  Avoid sugary drinks, processed snacks, and deep-fried food as they all contain unhealthy fats that can trigger inflammation. While preparing a diet plan, identify foods that make you uncomfortable or cause indigestion. Your body communicates with you through various symptoms, pay attention to them. Some of the common food triggers include: Dairy  Eggs Soya Peanuts Wheat  In addition to following an anti-inflammatory diet, seniors should lead an active lifestyle. It has been reported that adults aged 65 and over are the most sedentary age group – they spend 10 hours a day lying down or sitting. At our senior citizen homes in Chennai, we provide a supportive and welcoming environment to our residents who want to improve their fitness levels.  If you are looking for senior citizen homes in Chennai, explore our retirement communities to enjoy a worry-free lifestyle.

How to Help Your Ageing Parents Avoid the Risks of Loneliness?

September 5, 2021

Categories : Senior Living Tips

retirement homes in Chennai

“Loneliness acts as a fertiliser for other diseases,” says Dr Steven Cole, Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA School of Medicine and it can “accelerate the build-up of plaque in arteries, help cancer cells grow and spread, and promote inflammation in the brain leading to Alzheimer’s disease.” His research was focussed on the impact of loneliness on a person’s mental and physical wellbeing.    Loneliness is a serious health risk for seniors   If you do not live with your parents, you must often worry that they may feel isolated and lonely –and you are right to be concerned. As one of the leading  senior living homes in Chennai,  we offer some useful insights to help your ageing parents avoid the risks of loneliness:  Encourage them to nurture a hobby Having a hobby reduces the  feeling of isolation among seniors. With that little pressure of trying something new, your parents will enjoy the process of learning and meeting new people. Besides providing a sense of purpose, hobbies such as dancing and group knitting are inherently social in nature. Joining dance classes, knitting groups or reading clubs can open doors for them to make meaningful connections with like-minded people.  Talk to them about moving into a retirement home  The perception of ‘old age homes’ has undergone a drastic change in recent times. Nowadays, retirement homes in India offer a great sense of community. Residents are encouraged to participate in social activities and organise social events, while the management staff takes care of the facilities. Moving to a retirement home will give your parents the opportunity to live life to the fullest. They can explore new hobbies, make new friends, and stay happy and engaged.  Gift them a pet  Having a furry friend will keep your parents entertained and bring a lot of excitement to their lives. A pet might not be an equal substitute for human companionship, but people feel positive and less isolated with a pet around. Also, having a pet can have a positive effect on their health – pet ownership is associated with lower systolic blood pressure  and pulse pressure. Visit them in person  If it is not possible to stay closer to your parents, make an effort to visit them as frequently as possible. It would be a comforting feeling for them to see you in person rather than talk to you over the phone. And in case you live too far away from your parents to see them frequently, do video calls on Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime and give them a reason to smile every day seeing your face.  Teach them how to use technology Technology is a great way to stay connected to your parents. Learning technology will also help them to stay in touch with their friends and relatives. Teach them how to use technology – so that they can operate the computer’s camera, go online, use social media, or enrol for classes online to stay happy and socially connected.  Encourage them to be socially active Encourage your parents to stay in touch with their friends. If they take part in group outings or be a part of community events, they will have a social connection alive.   Looking for senior living homes in Chennai for your parents?  Explore our retirement homes in Chennai  – our senior living communities will help your parents live their retirement days in a fulfilling way. From fitness facilities and art classes to clubhouses, there are a host of options for our senior residents to stay physically active and socially engaged.

Easy Lifestyle Tweaks to Control Type 2 Diabetes Curated by One of the Leading Senior Citizen Homes in Coimbatore

September 1, 2021

Categories : Senior Health Tips

senior citizen homes in Coimbatore

Diabetes is a progressive disease and keeping it in check is the best way to prevent or delay serious health complications such as neuropathy, glaucoma, and nephropathy. For seniors suffering from Type 2 diabetes, maintaining optimal blood glucose level should be a priority. According to WebMD, the target HBA1C level for diabetics is usually less than 7%.  As one of the leading senior citizen homes in Coimbatore, we share with you some easy lifestyle tweaks to control Type 2 Diabetes:  Curb your cortisol levels: Cortisol is the hormone that is secreted when you are under chronic or acute stress. This can lead to high blood sugar. This is because when under stress, the body’s need for glucose increases. Cortisol is secreted as an ‘emergency response’ to trigger the release of glycogen, which is the body’s stored sugar.  Meditation and adding yoga to your daily routine can help you manage stress. Also, starting and ending your day with breathing exercises is a great way to reduce your stress levels. There are many 5 minutes to 10 minutes relaxation techniques that can be performed at any time of the day or whenever you feel stressed.   Eat fermented food often: Seniors who suffer from diabetes are at risk of developing high cholesterol. Consuming fermented foods such as yoghurt, cottage cheese, and kefir helps to decrease serum cholesterol levels. It has been found that the good bacterium in low-fat fermented dairy products reduces diabetes risk by 24 per cent. Fight back with good fats: Although fats have gained a bad reputation, good fats are essential for the body. Healthy fats such as those found in avocados, olives, nuts, and oily fish help stabilise blood sugar levels. To include healthy fats in your diet, use olive oil instead of butter. You can also add a handful of nuts to your salad or smoothie. Eat a yoghurt-based smoothie or add yoghurt to your breakfast cereal. However, be careful of the portions you are eating as, like all fats, these food items are high in calories.  Note: According to a Cambridge University study, consuming good fats in a controlled manner can help lower the risk of getting diabetes.  Buy a fitness tracker: A very important part of managing your diabetes is to exercise and eat right. Having a fitness tracker can help track the steps you are taking in a day and the calories you burn. While accurate feedback from a tracker is helpful for all fitness enthusiasts, it can be all the more beneficial for controlling diabetes.  At our retirement homes in Coimbatore, improving the health and well-being of the residents is our top priority Residents of our senior living communities start the day with yoga and breathing exercises. There are jogging paths for those who love to run in the open. Also, fitness enthusiasts can exercise in a well-equipped gym. The meals served at our retirement homes are prepared keeping in mind the nutritional needs of seniors.  If you are looking for a retirement home for yourself or your loved ones and wish to know more about our services and facilities, call us at +91 8884555554.

Five Awesome Benefits of Reading: Curated by a Leading Retirement Home in Bangalore

August 31, 2021

Categories : Senior Living Tips

retirement homes in Bangalore

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney Reading is fun. Reading a book not only transports the reader to an imaginary world, but it also offers an abundance of health benefits. Just like going for a jog boosts the cardiovascular system, reading can improve memory by giving your brain a workout. It has been found that creating a bedtime routine, like reading before bed, can improve the quality of sleep and improve overall health.  As one of the  leading retirement homes in Bangalore, we share with you 5 awesome benefits of reading for seniors: Alleviates stress: There are many ways to relax, but few are as immersive as reading. Reading is attributed to relieving stress. A 2009 study found that reading for just six minutes can reduce the stress levels by up to 68%.  Promotes better sleep: Reading is a better way of falling asleep than watching a TV show, which has been proven to keep people awake longer.  Reading improves memory: Since reading is a more neurologically challenging task than other activities, it makes the brain work harder. For example, reading a novel requires one to keep track of characters, plots, and scenarios which means the brain is working harder to focus and remember different details.  Protects cognitive health: Reading is a brain-challenging activity. It has been found that mental activities, including reading, may lower the risk of dementia in late life.  Makes people happy: The more people read, the happier they may feel. People who regularly read are more satisfied with their lives. Despite being a solitary activity, reading improves empathy and helps people understand social situations better.  At the well-stocked libraries at our retirement homes, residents can read in peace. Our libraries have computers as well as internet access for those who love reading eBooks. To know more about our retirement communities in Bangalore and other cities, call us at +91 8884555554.
