Looking for Senior Living Options - Choice Connections can Help You with No Fees!

There are many types of communities called Senior Housing. What a community is called does not give you a good understanding of what you might need or want. Many communities will combine the housing types below into a single building or campus, thus providing some continuum of care.Our local experts will help you understand the options available, so that you can make an informed decision that meets your needs, both now and as you age.Alzheimers/Memory CareIn this secure setting, unlike Assisted Living you arent behind a closed door but typically engaging in activities outside of your own studio apartment. There are communities focused only on memory care and memory care in more of a continuum of care setting. Care-to-resident ratios are improved over Assisted Living and average 1 to 6-8 typically during the day/evening.Independent LivingThis option is for those who are independent and often still driving. They can care for themselves, have a full kitchen and make their own meals. Here, they have access to services vs. care and perhaps a restaurant for meals and transportation as needed for shopping and outings, etc.Assisted LivingThese senior living rental apartments offer both services and care. An RN is required to complete a health assessment before you move in. You may not need caregivers coming to your apartment, however, if you had a fall, they would assist you as they know your health history. Care levels can be very high in some options and, as an alternative to a nursing home, this can often feel like a homier approach.Nursing HomesAlso called skilled care, this is often the option that comes after a hospital stay. This can be an appropriate, long-term option if needs are medically complex or if resources to pay for care are quite limited and Medicaid will be needed in less than a year.Residential CareThese communities are licensed as in Assisted Living, but the care is provided in a residential home. This option has the best care-to-resident ratio typically with 2 staff for 6 during the day and evening and 1 awake staff overnight. This option carries a higher cost due to the higher staffing ratios.Contact Choice Connections to help find your new home!  You can reach us at 651-261-5379 or visit our website at www.choiceconnectionsmn.com

Skip the Diet Fads: Tried and True Dietary Rules for Reducing Hypertension

Skip the Diet Fads: Tried and True Dietary Rules for Reducing HypertensionA healthy diet is key when looking for ways to fight off hypertension. The latest fad diets may promise fast results, but they often don't provide the long-term and sustainable changes needed to reduce the risk of hypertension.  In this blog post, we will discuss what hypertension is, its potential causes, and suggested dietary rules for reducing your risk.  What is Hypertension? Hypertension is a condition in which a person's blood pressure readings are consistently higher than average. This significantly increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other diseases of the cardiovascular system. High blood pressure can also lead to kidney failure, vision loss, or cognitive impairments.  The exact causes of hypertension vary greatly, but typically it can be linked to genetics, age, lifestyle, and diet. It is important to note that some factors are beyond our control. However, there are many actions we can take to reduce the risk of developing hypertension. Reducing the Risk of Hypertension Through DietWhen it comes to reducing the risk of hypertension, developing healthy dietary habits is key. Here are some of the recommended rules for creating a balanced diet that can help reduce a senior's risk: Increase Fruits and VegetablesIncreasing the number of fresh fruits and vegetables seniors eat will help increase beneficial antioxidants. This also helps in cutting out unhealthy fats and sugars.Reduce SaltConsuming too much salt can significantly raise blood pressure levels, so reducing salt intake is essential in managing hypertension risk. Reduce Processed FoodsEating processed foods regularly has been linked to an increased risk of hypertension. This is due to their high fat, sodium, and added sugar content, as well as the lack of vitamins, minerals, or fiber they offer compared to natural foods. Increase Whole GrainsEating whole grains like brown rice instead of white or refined grains helps provide healthier sources of carbohydrate energy without spiking blood pressure levels due to their low glycemic index rating, which keeps insulin levels steady over time. Increase Healthy FatsOpting for monounsaturated fatty acids, such as those found in avocados or nuts, rather than trans fats from commercially prepared items assists with lowering cholesterol and maintaining stable blood pressure readings. Reduce Sugar and Refined CarbohydratesExcessive consumption of sweets, sugary drinks, and refined carbohydrates has been linked to higher blood pressure readings. If seniors need something sweet, they can try fruits or sorbets. Strawberries drizzled in a low-fat dark chocolate sauce is a good option, too!Need Help Developing Healthy and Balanced Meals?If you are a senior looking to reduce your risk of developing hypertension, it is essential to opt for healthy and balanced meal plans. If you are struggling to create healthy and balanced meals at home, Senior Helpers of South Minneapolis can help.Working with an experienced senior care provider can assist you in creating a diet that fits your needs and lifestyle while helping you maintain optimal health and well-being. Contact us today to learn more about our in-home care services. We offer free in-home consultations in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Minnetonka, and Hennepin County, MN, so you can learn more about what we can do for you!  Call us at 612-470-2600 for more information or visit our website at:  https://www.seniorhelpers.com/mn/south-minneapolis
