PBA Tip of the day brought to you by Sam Ile with Anthem Senior Living (602) 909-9550.
It is mostly with older women that people associate osteoporosis. The signs of the condition typically appear during the retirement years, but this condition actually starts much earlier. It can affect both males and females, but it is most likely to occur in women after menopause, because of the sudden decrease in estrogen, the hormone that normally protects against osteoporosis. “Osteoporosis” literally means “porous bones.” The bones become weaker, increasing the risk of fractures, especially in the hip, spinal vertebrae, and wrist. The disease interrupts the body’s ability to create new bone tissue. Before furthering with our discussion, let us throw some light on assisted living facilities.If you have senior family members suffering from mobility or memory issues, they would require assisted living care and support for survival. You can ensure for your beloved to live a long and stable life by moving him to an assisted living facility such as the well-acclaimed Anthem Senior Living.
