Hypertension aka high blood pressure is a very common affliction for the elderly. It is often called a silent killer because you can have it for years without knowing it. In fact, about 50 million Americans have high blood pressure, but about 30 percent of them don't know it.
The best strategy for controlling and preventing high blood pressure is to begin with lifestyle changes. For the elderly this is often coupled with medication to reduce high blood pressure. Complications from medication can include inflamed and sore joints which reduce mobility.

My sisters and I have been kept very busy dealing with my aging Mother's medical needs, but felt compelled to take the time to thank you for your great service and care for my Mother.
I speak for my sisters and my mother as well when I tell you that we all would recommend your services to anyone that has a senior able to benefit from the extra care and nurturing help your services provide.
The wonderful people that you sent to help out our Mom not only enabled her to stay home with comfort and dignity, but provided her with a sense of safety and caring. It is obviously more than a job for them --- and more than just a business for you.
You guys went the extra mile on ALL possible occasions. I would ask you to please refer anyone with questions or doubts to us for the strongest possible recommendation.
My Mother was able to live in the comfort and safety of her own home right up to the end, thanks to the loving care of you and your staff. We are so grateful.
