Dressing Warmly for winter: Dressing in layers is more effective than wearing heavy coats. Fabrics such as wool, cotton, or fleece help keep in body heat. It is important to keep the head, face, and hands warm, so your loved one should wear a hat, gloves, and scarf each time he or she goes outdoors. Your loved one should also dress warmly in bed with thermal underwear, socks, and perhaps even a hat. As temperatures drop, a warm water bottle between the sheets or an electric blanket can be used for extra warmth, but your loved one should consult a doctor before using an electric blanket if he or she experiences incontinence.

To Avoid Slipping on the Ice: Icy, snowy roads and sidewalks make it easy to slip and fall. "Unfortunately, falls are a common occurrence for seniors, especially during the winter months. Often these falls cause major injuries such as hip and wrist fractures, head trauma and major lacerations. Make sure to wear shoes with good traction and non-skid soles, and stay inside until the roads are clear. Replace a worn cane tip to make walking easier. Take off shoes as soon as you return indoors because often snow and ice attach to the soles and, once melted, can lead to slippery conditions inside.

Fall preventions for the elderly: 1. Keep moving - Physical activity can go a long way toward fall prevention. With your doctor's OK, consider activities such as walking, water workouts or tai chi — a gentle exercise that involves slow and graceful dance-like movements. Such activities reduce the risk of falls by improving strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. If you avoid physical activity because you're afraid it will make a fall more likely, tell your doctor. He or she may recommend carefully monitored exercise programs or refer you to a physical therapist. The physical therapist can create a custom exercise program aimed at improving your balance, flexibility, muscle strength and gait. 2. Wear sensible shoes - Consider changing your footwear as part of your fall-prevention plan. High heels, floppy slippers and shoes with slick soles can make you slip, stumble and fall. So can walking in your stocking feet. Instead, wear properly fitting, sturdy shoes with nonskid soles. Sensible shoes may also reduce joint pain. 3. Light up your living space - Keep your home brightly lit to avoid tripping on objects that are hard to see. Also: •Place night lights in your bedroom, bathroom and hallways. •Place a lamp within reach of your bed for middle-of-the-night needs. •Make clear paths to light switches that aren't near room entrances. Consider trading traditional switches for glow-in-the-dark or illuminated switches. •Turn on the lights before going up or down stairs. •Store flashlights in easy-to-find places in case of power outages. 4. Use assistive devices - Your doctor might recommend using a cane or walker to keep you steady. Other assistive devices can help, too. For example: •Hand rails for both sides of stairways •Nonslip treads for bare-wood steps •A raised toilet seat or one with armrests •Grab bars for the shower or tub •A sturdy plastic seat for the shower or tub — plus a hand-held shower nozzle for bathing while sitting down.

2 Easy Stretches that are Relaxing each day: Stretching when your muscles are warm has a number of benefits including: Building greater flexibility overall. Relaxation and stress relief. Helping your body get back to its pre-exercise state. Giving both your mind and body a chance to reflect and feel the impact of the stretches you just did. The great thing about stretching is that you don't have to spend a lot of time on the exercises to get the benefits. This total body flexibility workout proves it with stretches so simple, you can do them anywhere - After a workout, at work, or even when you're watching TV. These exercises promote flexibility, coordination and relaxation and, after a long day, they just feel good to your body. Most of us probably don't spend nearly enough time doing good things for our minds and bodies each day, making this workout a must if that's one of your goals. This workout targets 2 of the major muscles of the body, including those that are chronically tight like the hips, and legs. Try these exercises after a workout or anytime throughout the day to feel good and get rid of any extra tension you may be carrying around. Precautions See your doctor if you have any medical conditions, illnesses or injuries Equipment Needed A chair or bench How To Begin with a 5-10 minute warm-up of light cardio or do this after a workout or a bath when your muscles are warm. Hold each stretch for 10-30 seconds and repeat for 1-3 times. Try to stretch every day if you can for better results. Avoid any exercises that cause pain or discomfort and only stretch as deep as you can. The stretch shouldn't hurt, it should feel good. If your muscles are shaking, you need to back off a bit and let your muscles relax more. 1 Quad Stretch Stand and hold onto a wall for balance if needed. Grab the top of the right foot and bend your knee, bringing the foot towards the glutes, knee pointing straight at the floor. You should feel a stretch right down the front of your leg. Squeeze your hips forward for a deeper stretch. Hold for 15-30 seconds and switch sides, repeating 1-3 times. 2 Standing Hamstring Stretch Take your left foot forward and tip from the hips, keeping the back flat. Lower down until you feel a stretch in the back of the leg. Rest the hands on the upper thighs to give your back some support. If you feel shaky or your hamstrings are tight, try using a resistance band to give you more leverage. Hold for 15-30 seconds and switch sides, repeating 1-3 times.
