LGBTQ+ Senior Community Aging In Their Homes

There are several awareness months celebrated in June — though one of the top five that often get the most attention is LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Across the country, organizations involved with older Americans are discussing ways to assist the senior community to age in their own homes and communities and how to remove barriers to aging in place. For LGBTQ+ elders, the ability to age at home is critical but often the services and supports that make that happen are barred to them. It’s estimated that by 2030, there will be 5 million LGBTQ+ seniors over 65 in the U.S. They face overwhelming barriers in maintaining their independence as they age.  They are twice as likely to live alone and are four times as likely to be childless as the general population. Many are estranged from their birth families due to family members’ unwillingness to accept their identity. Nearly one-third live below the federal poverty line

Spring Has Sprung!

Unfortunately, some of the nicest weather and foliage during the year is accompanied by an onslaught of allergens. As pollen fills the air, people afflicted by seasonal allergies begin to groan. While allergies are often considered a condition that presents earlier in life, seniors are not exempt from bothersome allergy symptoms. Research suggests that age-related changes to the immune system may leave older adults at greater risk for autoimmune diseases, infections, and allergic inflammation. To complicate matters further, seniors often have chronic diseases and take multiple medications that can make it difficult to diagnose, manage, and treat their seasonal allergies.

Whether it’s your parent, relative, or elderly friend, seeing them lose their independence can be painful.

So, your job of finding the right professional care is not an easy one.

Elderspeak – Is it helpful or just baby talk?

Like an automatic shift into low gear, we often revert to baby talk when communicating with seniors regardless of the person's ability to understand and respond. This is called "Elderspeak." It is common, especially between young caregivers and older residents in a nursing home.

How Can You Tell If an Older Adult Is Dehydrated?

You might remember the old saying “Always drink 8 glasses of water a day.” However there are many factors that determine how much water someone needs. And it is not one size fits all. Adequate daily water intake for a young, healthy person is around 13 cups for males and 9 cups for females. But as we age, this estimate gets more complicated.
