Q: Does sun protection still lower the risk of skin cancer in older adults?

A: Yes! Protecting skin isn't just for younger generations. In fact, your skin cancer risk continues to increase until around age 85.

In honor of Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, here are the five ways you can stay safe in the sun at any age:

1. Stay in the shade.
2. Use sunscreen.
3. Wear a wide-brimmed hat.
4. Wear clothing to the ankles.
5. Wear a long-sleeved shirt.

Social ties are an important part of healthy aging.

Loneliness can have serious consequences for your loved one and may even contribute to their cognitive decline.

➡️ Are you caring for a home-bound client? As a caregiver, generating new and exciting activities can be challenging, but fear not, as there are numerous options available. Allow us to suggest three ideas for home-bound activities that may not have crossed your mind before:

1. Create Jewelry Together. Engage in this enjoyable craft that enhances fine motor skills and sparks creativity. The added benefit is that participants can proudly wear or gift their creations.
2. Make Music Together. Explore whether your client has played an instrument in the past and find ways to rekindle that passion. Alternatively, consider arranging for a musician to delight you both with a home concert, or watch a concert together online.
3. Indulge in a Spa Day. Transform mundane hygiene routines into a luxuriant experience. Utilize face masks, soak feet, and follow up with lotion application. Elevating self-care can turn it into a rejuvenating pleasure rather than a mere task.

The language we use matters: to our loved ones, clients, and patients. Particularly when forms of dementia or cognitive impairment are involved. Research has shown that a person-centered approach can lead to improved quality of life, better sleep, and increased self-esteem, as well as reduce agitation for those living with dementia.

Here are some of the helpful examples that can get us all thinking about the language we use and how it can impact the population we serve.

We'd love to hear how you've noticed word-choice and language affects your interaction and connection with older adults! Let us know in the comments 🔽

One lesser-known sign is repeated instances of poor judgment–and we're not talking about the occasional too-late night. This refers to actions like:

➡️ Neglecting personal hygiene
➡️ Ignoring a serious or concerning medical problem, such as an infected cut or bad cough
➡️ Wearing a sweater and jeans on an extremely warm day.
