Diet Management For Senior Citizens by Jane Kim

Filed under: Articles 

As people grow older, they become less active, especially after retirement from an active job. Food is required to maintain the health and state of the body, as in younger age groups, but less energy is needed. Senior citizens can maintain their health by following tips:

– Many elderly women and some men suffer from a condition called osteoporosis, which is result of gradual loss calcium and other minerals from the skeleton. Bones become brittle, may break easily, and are painful.

– To help prevent this problem everyone, but especially women, should have plenty of calcium and vitamin D in their diet when younger, and take regular exercise. There is evidence that taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) at, and for few years after, menopause can help prevent osteoporosis in women.

– The size of meals should decrease as people become less active, but the quality should not. There is no need for elderly to eat soft or smooth foods only, unless they have a digestive disorder which makes this necessary; they can still enjoy crisps, crunchy; and hard foods, even if they wear dentures, providing that the dentures fit into the gums properly.

– It may be necessary to increase the intake of fiber to avoid constipation, which is common disorder in this age group. Many elderly people resort to using laxatives to prevent or ease constipation. This is undesirable and usually unnecessary if the diet contains sufficient fiber.

– A reduced income may mean that it is not possible to eat much meat or other protein foods, and this poses problems to many senior citizens. Pulses and cereals can be eaten as cheaper alternatives to meat and other and other animal protein foods, or to supplement them.

– Mobility problems may also influence where foods is purchased and how often, and the elderly may require help from the social services department or from willing neighbors.

– The loss of a partner may also affect the motivation to cook and eat well, and this often leads to poor health among the elderly.

– Senior citizen’s luncheon clubs are run by many religious organizations and charities to enable the elderly to meet in social atmosphere, and enjoy a meal together. This is good for their quality of life and happiness. And provide the chance to enjoy a cooked meal which they may not have at home. The meals are usually subsidized.

– Meals on wheels are provided in many areas, and offer daily social contact for elderly people, as well as a regular hot meal. In some areas, people now receive a weekly delivery of frozen meals which they reheat in microwave oven. This saves costs, but limits the important social contact.

Boston Elder Care Expert A. Michael Bloom Shares Coping Strategies to Support Accidental Caregivers Tending to Ailing Moms and Dads

Boston Elder Care Expert A. Michael Bloom Shares Coping Strategies to Support Accidental Caregivers Tending to Ailing Moms and Dads

BOSTON, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Mother’s and Father’s Day celebrations are approaching, yet millions of adult children care for parents year round while on the brink of burnout.  Catapulted into the accidental caregiver role without warning, stressed-out kids are doing their best to hold life together when everything seems to be falling apart.

Boston Elder Care Expert A. Michael Bloom issues a timely warning. “You must seek support as a caregiver.  The life you save may be your own.”

Bloom offers practical coping strategies to help family caregivers recharge their energy and avoid burnout during a free monthly Caregiving Power Hour.  During these tele-sessions, caregivers get tactical solutions to get through the week ahead.  Bloom wants to inspire and train caregivers to provide quality support for their loved ones while fully living their own lives.

“It’s coaching, community, and caring in the gift of an hour of sacred time that can really make a difference,” Bloom says.

Bloom knows the stressful caregiving journey well.  He served as the primary, live-in caregiver for his parents during their final years.  His father passed away in 2009 and, after a courageous battle with cancer, Bloom’s mother passed away in his loving arms on Mother’s Day 2012.

“Caregivers put the well-being of loved ones first which can mean putting their own needs and plans on the back burner.  The regret for career or life enhancing opportunities not taken can be a bitter pill to swallow,” Bloom says.

He honors the legacy of his parents by sharing key steps along the roadmap to caregiving without regret.

  1. Release Crisis Mode. Stop being a victim to circumstances so you feel stronger and become laser-focused to meet your family’s needs.  Supporting loved ones through medical challenges is overwhelming and scary.  When you become aware that feeling like a victim or in a state of crisis is a mindset, you can successfully shift back into taking control and positive action.
  2. Overcome Conflict.  Communicate and cope with calm and clarity. Otherwise, you will crash while riding the emotional roller coaster associated with disability or disease. Mastering your own trigger points for anger and frustration will lead you to deal effectively with the most challenging people and circumstances in your life.
  3. Achieve Buy-In. Motivate others to contribute based upon their individual abilities, preferences, and talents so your loved one receives the most satisfying support possible.  Giving others choices for how they can serve will foster their desire to gladly help on a regular basis.
  4. Deliver Greatness and Compassion in Equal Doses.  Become the inspiring caregiver that people cheer for and gladly support in meaningful ways.  Let your compassion shine through in all actions as you support your loved one.  Devote equal time for self-care so you have the energy to let your best shine through even during tough times.
  5. Magnetize and Motivate Talent. Create an atmosphere that attracts and retains the best people to join your loved one’s care team and experience brilliant performance.  Stay positive and open to the opinions of others so you can facilitate options for the best care and support.
  6. Access Intuition.  Trust your instincts and let your care and dedication guide your decisions.  Share any concerns and questions with key support professionals.  It is better to explore a concern that proves to be okay rather than ignore something that could be life threatening.
  7. Put Chocolate in Your Pill Box.  Find ways to fuel your soul so you can thrive during the caregiver journey and develop the passion and purpose for your life beyond caregiving.  Dose yourself regularly to avoid burnout while creating enduring satisfaction and success.

About Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership™ Master Practitioner A. Michael Bloom

Michael Bloom has revitalized the careers of hundreds of family and professional caregivers with practical, tactical soul-saving coping strategies that support them in saving lives – including their own.  An in-demand New England speaker, workshop leader, and coach, Bloom has influenced hundreds of caregivers to follow a roadmap to avoid burnout and recharge their caregiving energy.  The author of the forthcoming book, The Accidental Caregivers Survival Guide: Your Roadmap to Caregiving Without Regret, Bloom welcomes media interviews, speaking engagements, and the opportunity to inspire caregivers around the world via his monthly Caregiving Power Hours.  Learn more at http://www.bloomforcoach.com/powerhour/.

Great Las Vegas Music

February 16, 2013 by · Leave a Comment

The bars, lounges, supper clubs and joints around town are filled with another week of great entertainment.

Start the weekend early with Mark Giovi at Casa di Amore. Reviewed by one website as, “Vegas, the way it used to be,” Casa di Amore remains a favorite of locals and a destination for visitors worldwide. A 7-year Strip headliner, Giovi’s classic music stylings have been tailored for the supper club venue perfectly. Giovi performs regularly Wednesday-Saturday, 6:30-10:30 PM. Casa di Amore is just minutes east of Las Vegas Blvd., 2850 E Tropicana Ave. Click here to view the menu.

For Boulder City folks, Mike Vaughn, another Checkmates alumnus, has a Wednesday-Saturday run at the Hacienda Hotel, 7:30 PM-Midnight. Vaughn has assembled a great band that pays tribute to legendary blues artists, including Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bo Diddley, the Allman Brothers and more.

“Casual” is the word for Thursday, when Kent Foote and the Vegas Good Fellas bring their 5-member band to Siena Deli, 9500 W. Sahara. Foote’s vibe welcomes all guests and Chef Giancarlo’s menu satisfy nearly every taste with a menu ranging from great appetizers to specialty sandwiches, salads, not-your-everyday pasta selection, meat, fish and chicken entrees. The 3-hour music set begins at 7:30 PM. Friday, Foote and his keyboard plater, Chicago Paul Stevenson Sinatra-cizes their repertoire beginning a 4-hour set at 6:00 PM at Ferraro’s, rated by one magazine as the #1 restaurant…period! Ferraro’s, at 4480 Paradise Road, offers a 50% food discount to locals. Whether visiting. Siena or Ferraro’s, go early…and stay. You’ll love it!

Lisa Gay and hubby Tony Drake have quickly established themselves as one of Las Vegas’ “must sees.” Resident headliners at Alexis Park Resort’s newly remodeled Pegasus Room, the couple, whose roots go back to Lou Rawls, the Fifth Dimension and many more walk-of-famers have developed a following that attracts local and visiting celebrities. The 9:00 PM Friday show features guests Toscha Comeaux and Donna Lynne. Alexis Park is across from the Hard Rock Casino, 374 E. Harmon Av.

Get ready to sweat! Ricco “The Las Vegas Showman” Diamante expects everyone (but me) on the dance floor. He’s packed his glitter and sequins, loaded up the car and is on a local mini-tour, first Friday night at the Silverton Casino 7:00-10:00 PM Friday night, Feb. 8 before returning to the Fiesta Rancho Saturday night, 8:30 PM – 12:30 AM. This Las Vegas Showman regularly attracts an audience that provides as much glitz, glamor and excitement off stage as Ricco does on stage. Ricco packs his high energy performances with rock, Motown, R & B and the great dance songs of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with a touch of classic ballads like “the Platters “Only You.” Watch for a bit of Elvis thrown in. If you haven’t seen Ricco before, the time is right because he’s coming to a venue near you. If you have seen him before…well, if you have seen him before, you’ll probably be back this weekend. No cover either night.

America’s Got Talent finalist Seth Grabel brings what he calls his own brand of “acromagic” to the stage, blending flips, leaps with sleight-of-hand and large-scale illusions. Grabel’s real appeal is his easy comedic charm and his ability to grasp nail-biting dramatics to make his shows an exercise in nerve-wracking tension and breath-catching release. On America’s Got Talent, Grabel amazed millions of viewers by making a DeLorean appear out of thin air but the surprises weren’t over yet. Emerging from the futuristic vehicle were mini versions of the shows judges, Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan. Grabel appears every Thursday through Sunday at the Royal Resort (formerly Debbie Reynolds Casino), 99 Convention Center Dr., just a half block off The Strip. Showtime is 6:00 PM. If you hurry, there may still be discount tickets available on line. Go to www.Groupon.com
Vocalist Treasure Guffy and her band have made the Stratosphere’s 107 Lounge high on many people’s must-visit list. The sultry singer keeps it mellow with her jazz, light blues and R & B, all tailored to the room, the mood and the audience, both in the lounge and a flight down in the Stratosphere’s revolving restaurant. The breath-taking views of The Strip are unequaled as are the mood and music created by Guffy and her three fine musicians. Treasure’s band is scheduled to perform 6:00-10:00 PM Wednesday through Sunday through the end of March. Happy hour specials run 4:00-7:00 and include half price amazing appetizers and everybody’s favorite martini, the 2-For-1 in a variety of blends. Hurry in though, because rumor is that management is bringing in a DJ and music-in-a-box. Goodbye atmosphere.

Don’t know what to expect Sunday night at Artifice, described on their website as an “urban lounge” and having “three rooms with an eclectic mix of music and entertainment,” but that’s the thrill of discovery. Sunday Artifice hosts a rare performance by Wendy Fleming, who will be appearing in one of those three rooms. I first saw Wendy backing up Bobby Brooks Wilson at Bootlegger when he respectfully handed her the mic and she stunned the audience with her slow, sultry version of “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess. Since then, Wendy’s local appearances have been few but Sunday night she’ll be part of KC Live with saxophone player Sid the Kid beginning at 7:30 PM. Artifice is located at 1025 S 1st Street.

Some Save-The-Dates…or You’ll Wish You Had

February 15: Peter Pavone is the guest of Lisa Gay, Tony Drake and their Gentlemen of Thrill Band at Alexis Park. Pavone has appeared extensively around the world paying tribute to Dean and Frank in Rat Pack Shows. He’s also a regular around Las Vegas, often appearing with Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Tribute. Pavone has also won rave reviews for his Hello-I’m-Johnny-Cash tributes. Alexis Park is across from the Hard Rock Casino, 375 E. Harmon Av.

February 21: The Vegas Underground that’s writing Las Vegas entertainment history takes their show to House of Blues prestigious Foundation Room in Mandalay Bay. Vegas Underground, subject of a front page story in the Los Angeles Times, burst on the scene two years ago with a classic Rat Pack-type anything-goes show every Monday at west side’s Tap House. Drummer LJ Harness promises the same you-never-know who-will-show-up type of top entertainers but has leaked that Paul Shortino (of Quiet Riot) Frankie Scinta and David Perrico of Pop Evolution have expressed an interest. Vegas Underground regulars include host Mark Giovi, saxophone player Steve Poncar (of Las Vegas Good Fellas), Ned Mills on keyboard and guitar player Keith Neal.

February 23: Pia is Back! Flying under the radar for too long, Pia Zadora (pictured) has returned to the stage after a 15-year absence with the grace, style and energy that belies that decade and a half hiatus. After a stunning performance on stage at the Smith Center, Pia knocked ’em dead at the Vegas Underground’s sponsored Toys for Tots gala, singing and kibitzing with comedian and Academy Award performer Steve Rossi. Tickets for her Sun Coast performance are available on line by clicking here.

April 13 and 14: The Bronx Wanderers who makes us remember what we loved about the Doo Wop era return to the South Point Casino to reprise the sold out shows the past two years. The 5-man band is anchored by vocalist dad Vinnie and sons Vinnie Jr and Nicky. More than a tribute band to “The Wanderer” icon Dion DiMucci, the stage erupts into excitement when surprises too good to reveal jump off the stage to the delight of all audiences. Although tickets are not yet available, mark your calendars to see this exciting group.

The Way Out Christian Fellowship

Senior Pastor Earl Kennedy

My name is Earl Kennedy, I came to the Lord in 1991 leaving behind a lifestyle of drug addiction and witchcraft.  I was lost and broken with no hope in life when God came to me.  He sent me back to the streets that I came from to help others.  We now have sober living homes for people who want help.  They are able to start their lives over again with the Lord leading the way.

We have both men and women recovery homes up and running.  The homes are set in a family atmosphere to give people something many are not used to.  We have people staying anywhere between one month to 2 years. When they are ready to leave , then they go. Our goal for everyone  who comes to us is that they never have to be addicted to anything again.  Most are also restored to their own families.  Above all else they leave with a relationship with the Lord that solves all their problems.  This is a 24 hour a day job and the blessings that come with watching lives change in this manner are not measureable.  God has blessed the houses and those who live in them.

Lionheart Academy

We are in the process of opening a boarding school in the Las Vegas Valley.  It is a place for children rescued from slavery.  Most people know about this as child trafficking.  Housing both sex and labor trafficked children, we will take children from preschool age through 17 years old. We will also take them from anywhere in the US or internationally.  www.LionheartAcademy.org

 

Mission

The purpose of THE WAY OUT CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP is:

“For the equipping to the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.  As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love”.  (Ephesians 4:12-16)

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three Persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit , equal in power and glory; that this tri-une God created all, upholds all and governs all.

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through the SON, Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe in His virgin birth.  His sinless life, His miracles and teachings, His death for our sins according to the Scriptures, His burial, His bodily resurrection, His finished work on the cross, His ascension into Heaven, and His perpetual intercession for His followers.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit and all Biblical callings.

We believe that all People are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore, are under condemnation and therefore, in need of salvation and regeneration.  We believe that eternal life and salvation is only by God’s grace through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe in the True Church, the living spirit body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.  “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all”.  (Ephesians 1:22-23NKVJ)
