The immune system is a very important part of our body, especially for seniors. Doing good personal care habits will help the function of your immune system to fight against harmful viruses and bacteria. As you grow older, your immune system weakens and so do your other organs and parts of your body. When your immune system fails, you get sick.
Because we are a non-medical home care agency in Canada, we highly value the health of our senior loved ones. Since seniors are more prone to sickness, we have created this short guide to help you boost your defense system to avoid infection.
- Get enough rest.
You have to sleep for 7 hours a day and the time should not be later than 10 PM. Your body heals and repairs itself while you sleep. If you lack sleep, some parts of your body may not be fully repaired to do its purpose.
- Avoid Stress.
Find time to do what you love or something fun with your friends or family. Find time to unwind and forget about the stress from work from negative people.
- Eat nutritious foods.
Plant-based foods like fruits and vegetables are good for the immune system. Citrus fruits, herbs, and spices can also improve your defense.
