February is American Heart Health Month, but it's important to remember the benefits of keeping your heart healthy all year long. The goal of American Heart Health Month is to save lives by preventing one million heart attacks and strokes in the U.S. by the year 2117. As you’ll see, maintaining a healthy heart is incredibly important. But thankfully, it’s also relatively easy.
It has been well publicized in recent years that a sedentary lifestyle can increase the likelihood of adverse medical conditions. Some of these conditions include diabetes, heart attack, certain cancers, stroke, cognitive decline, and osteoporosis.

Often times, seniors need extra attention during winter because they are especially vulnerable to colder temperatures, slipping and falling on snow or becoming homebound and isolated. By implementing winter preparation strategies before snow and frigid temperatures settle in, you can keep your aging loved one safe, healthy and as independent as possible in case you cannot be there when the weather is bad.
