Many of the benefits of aspirin have been known for quite some time. For example, the heart health that aspirin promotes is pretty well known. Aspirin protects healthy blood flow by preventing clots from occurring. If a clot blocks an artery or vein, it can prevent blood from going where it’s supposed to. This can cause things like heart attacks and can increase the risk associated with other maladies like high blood pressure. Research has also shown that aspirin helps fight some types of cancer and can lower the mortality rate amongst people that are suffering from colon cancer. This is exciting news for the elderly that are at a higher risk of getting cancer.
Now, a new piece of research is indicating that aspirin can cut down on the levels of cognitive decline that the elderly experience. In fact, the percentage of your chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease goes down by about 55 percent when you take aspirin on a daily basis.
Paradise In-Home Care and the Paradise Gardens Care Homes urge you to talk with your doctor before starting a regimen of aspirin as a daily habit. There are a lot of health benefits that come along with taking aspirin, but there are also some risks associated with aspirin as well. The bleeding that can be caused by aspirin—even in small amounts—can far outweigh the benefits that come along with taking this pill. There is a high risk amongst some people of stomach or even brain bleeding. Some reports say the risk is above 50 percent. Your physician will be able to help guide you in the right direction on this matter.
For the people that wonder whether aspirin might be of benefit to them, the Paradise companies have a lot to offer. Paradise In-Home Care provides caregiver services within the client’s home at their convenience. This is a great opportunity for people that need a little bit of help around the house or get nervous trying to do their chores on their own. In home care is a non-intrusive form of care and people of all sorts can benefit from this sort of service.
Assisted living is designed for people that need a little bit of extra supervision. The Paradise Gardens Care Homes offer around the clock supervision for their residents, along with all the benefits that a caregiver can provide. There are no chores to worry about, and there are plenty of opportunities to take part in activities and socialize with people your own age. Assisted living facilities can host all sorts of people, but the idea that you will lose your freedom is a false one. Assisted living provides seniors with more independence to focus on the things that they want to, and worry less about the daily chores that they would be responsible for on their own.
A caregiver in any sort of capacity is not a replacement for good medical care, but with a combination of the two of these things, senior citizens can start living healthier lives. Taking aspirin might help some people, but in others it can do harm. Paradise encourages you to talk with a doctor before starting any sort of pill regimen. In home care or assisted living, coupled with good medical care, can be a huge boost to your health and thus the enjoyment of your life.
