Senior's Health

Senior’s Health at Satori

Senior’s health involves focused medical care and support provided to older adults as they navigate the unique health challenges associated with aging. This comprehensive approach addresses the physical, mental, and social well-being of seniors and focuses on promoting healthy aging, preventing diseases, managing chronic conditions and providing focused medical care for age-related conditions.

Chronic disease management is a key component of senior's health, as older adults often have multiple chronic conditions to handle at once. It involves a coordinated approach to monitor, treat, and prevent the progression of conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and respiratory disorders. Healthcare practitioners will work closely with seniors to develop individualized care plans and to help support self-management strategies.

Dementia care is a crucial aspect of senior's health, as dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, unfortunately affects a significant number of older adults. Dementia care involves providing comprehensive assessments, personalized treatment plans and ongoing support to help individuals with memory loss and cognitive decline maintain their independence and quality of life.

Senior’s Health covers a wide range of conditions and ailments:

  • Mobility Issues: Physical mobility can become difficult due to conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and joint pain, affecting daily activities.

  • Cardiovascular Health: Heart diseases such as hypertension, heart attacks, and strokes pose increased risks for seniors due to age-related changes.

  • Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is prevalent among older adults and requires careful management to control blood sugar levels.

  • Vision and Hearing Impairments: Deteriorating vision and hearing can impact daily life and communication for many seniors.
