FEBRUARY 2016
February is Heart Month: Heart Healthy Habits for Seniors
Heart disease is a major threat to senior health — in fact, 84 percent of people age 65 years and older die from
heart disease. Though heart disease risks increase with age, it doesn’t have to be an inevitable part of getting
older. The right lifestyle habits and a heart-healthy diet can help protect you.
What exactly is heart disease? It’s the term given to a group of different health conditions that affect the heart.
In the United States, the most common form of heart disease is called coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD is
often responsible for serious cardiovascular events like a heart attack, heart failure, chest pain, and irregular
heartbeat, also called arrhythmia.
7 Steps to Heart Disease Prevention:
You can keep your heart healthy no matter how old you are, but it does take effort — possibly even changes in
your everyday habits, such as eating a heart-healthy diet and increasing your activity level. Here’s how to get
started:
1. Get enough exercise. This means at least 30 minutes of exercise almost every day of the week.
2. Quit smoking. If you do smoke, it's time to quit. (FREE Colorado Quit Line - coquitline.org or 1-800-7848669
3. Eat a heart-healthy diet. Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables while limiting saturated fats, salt, and
foods containing cholesterol, like fatty meats.
4. Watch your numbers. Get regular check-ups to monitor health conditions that affect the heart, including
Special points of interest:
high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, and make
sure they’re under control with medication.

Heart Healthy Habits (continued from page 1):
5. Reduce your alcohol intake. Excess alcohol consumption can worsen health conditions that
contribute to heart disease, like blood pressure, arrhythmias, and high cholesterol levels.
6. Minimize stress in your life. Stress can compound many heart disease risks that seniors already
face, steering you toward an unhealthy lifestyle. Find healthy outlets to relieve stress and lower
your heart disease risk.
7. Watch your weight. Too many pounds can add up to increased heart disease risk. To help
prevent heart disease, maintain a healthy body weight for your size.
Working with your doctor can help keep health problems under control. It's never too late to start
living a healthy lifestyle and getting your heart disease risks in check. (everydayhealth.com)

Depression is not a normal part of growing older
Depression is a true and treatable medical condition, not a normal part of aging. However older adults
are at an increased risk for experiencing depression. Depression is not just having "the blues" or the
emotions we feel when grieving the loss of a loved one. It is a true medical condition that is treatable,
like diabetes or hypertension.
How Do I Know If It's Depression?
Someone who is depressed has feelings of sadness or anxiety that last for weeks at a time. He or she
may also experience–
•
Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism
•
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness and/or helplessness
•
Irritability, restlessness
•
Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable
•
Fatigue and decreased energy
•
Difficulty concentrating, remembering details and making decisions
•
Insomnia, early–morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping
•
Overeating or appetite loss
•
Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts
•
Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not get better, even
with treatment
How is Depression Different for Older Adults?
•
Older adults are at increased risk. We know that about 80% of older adults have at least one
chronic health condition, and 50% have two or more. Depression is more common in people who
also have other illnesses (such as heart disease or cancer) or whose function becomes limited.
•
Older adults are often misdiagnosed and undertreated. Healthcare providers may mistake an
older adult's symptoms of depression as just a natural reaction to illness or the life changes that
may occur as we age, and therefore not see the depression as something to be treated. Older adults
themselves often share this belief and do not seek help because they don't understand that they
could feel better with appropriate treatment. (article: cdc.gov)
How Many Older Adults Are Depressed?
The good news is that the majority of older adults are not depressed. Some estimates of major depression in older people living in the community range from less than 1% to about 5%. If you are depressed or are looking for local resources, contact Mind Springs Health at mindspringshealth.org

Cook’s Corner: Almond Date Bars
Ingredients:
•
•
•
•
•
2 cups whole almonds
4-5 cups loosely-packed dates, pitted
1 cup Craisins (or additional dates)
¼ cup dark chocolate chips
¼ cup shredded coconut, optional
Directions:
If your dates still have pits, cut the dates in half
lengthwise and remove the seed.
Pulse the almonds and dates in a food processor
until your desired consistency is reached, adjusting the amount of dates and almonds as
needed.
You should be able to pick up a bit of the mixture and press it between your fingers without it
being sticky and without it crumbling apart.
(itsybitsyfoodies.com)
If desired, pulse in chocolate chips,
shredded coconut, and/or any other
ingredients.
Line a 10x14-inch pan with parchment
paper and press the almond-date mixture
into the pan to reach your desired thickness.
(I like them to be ½ - 1 inch thick.)
Cut into 32 squares, or bigger bars, or use a
heart cookie cutter (or other shape) to cut
out shapes (and save the cut-out scraps for
snacks for yourself!)
