The Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Benefits of Drinking Coffee

Uccello Kettle SEE PAGE 146

Drinking more coffee could leave you full of beans, according to a new study. A review of research by the British Journal of Medicine has concluded we should wake up and smell the coffee if we want to live longer! Well to be more precise, the report says supping three to four cups a day may have some health benefits including a reduced risk of liver disease and some cancers and a lower risk of dying from a stroke. It is difficult to say exactly how coffee is beneficial us, but researchers believe that it is to do with the anti-oxidants found within coffee that can help prevent damage to cells in the body. However, coffee-lovers shouldn’t get too excited just yet, despite the research showing the coffee drinkers from the study experienced these health benefits, it is unclear whether the coffee was the cause of them. A BBC report concludes that instead of “putting all your bets on coffee being good for you, you could instead do something that has been proven to extend life - take a brisk, 20-minute walk to the nearest coffee shop whether you order a cup or not”

How well do you know your coffee? Approximately 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide each and every day!

Two Handled Cup

Coffee is a fruit! Coffee beans are actually the seed of a berry similar to a cherry - does count as one of our five a day I wonder?! The world’s most expensive coffee is approximately £450 for 1lb! And what’s worse is it comes from the faeces of a wild cat found in Southeast Asia – now that’s dedication and commitment to your morning cuppa! Legend has it that the first cup of coffee was made as far back as 800 A.D by goat herders in Ethiopia. It was made with the coffee berries and kept them awake all night!

SEE PAGE 148

Surprisingly the country that drinks the most coffee is actually Finland, estimated at approximately 12kgs per person per year!

So whether you’re cappuccino-crazy, mocha-mad or prefer a simple cup of instant, moderation is the key – get together with friends and family to toast to the benefits of the coffee bean!

The Benefits of Gardening

The Benefits of Gardening

48

Getting older can present us with a few more physical challenges than we would like, but is that going to stop us from gardening or pursuing other passions? Certainly not! In fact, there are some major benefits to be gained through gardening. Whether it’s a passion or just a hobby, gardening is good for our health as well as our peace of mind.


Gardening is great for the body and mind!

Mental Benefits of Gardening The Health Benefits of Gardening The art of gardening, provides a spectrum of health benefits to people of every age, both physically and mentally. Recently a study was conducted by Bakker Spalding, and it found that for 88% of people, mental wellbeing is one of the key benefits of spending time in the garden. Thrive is a charity that uses gardening to bring about positive changes in people’s lives who are living with disabilities or ill health.

Physical Benefits of Gardening

Garden Roller Stool

Gardening is a physical activity, encouraging a broad range of movements that encompass multiple parts of the body. The NHS recommends a minimum of 150 minutes per week of moderate level physical activity for health maintenance and the prevention of many chronic diseases and health conditions. A typical gardener – even a hobbyist gardener – surpasses that recommendation regularly. Gardening is a “whole” body activity. As opposed to certain tasks and exercises that target just the arms, for example, gardening encourages moderate exertion from all the main muscle groups. We’re all familiar with the need to “get a breath of fresh air.” Gardening promotes a daily dose of the great outdoors.

Gardening is generally regarded as a calming and relaxing activity. Dedicated time to nurturing plants provides an opportunity for peaceful thought and focus. For some, the art of caring for a garden becomes akin to meditation. The act of communing with nature is believed, in many traditions, to be beneficial to the spirit. Spending quality time with your garden is an effective and enjoyable way to nurture this connection with Mother Nature. That “breath of fresh air” that’s physically beneficial is also mentally stimulating. The health benefits of immersing oneself in nature are widely recognised, and there’s something so very satisfying about looking upon a garden you have grown and enjoying the beauty it provides. And fresh, homegrown fruits and vegetables? Well, it just doesn’t get any better than that!

The Intangible Rewards of Gardening Gardening also provides many rewards that cannot be measured directly. Gardening offers a communal opportunity to work with family, friends and neighbours toward a common goal. Many of us recall working in the garden with our parents or grandparents when we were children. The opportunity to continue making memories like that is alive and well in the garden. As we get older, certain mobility issues may change the way we manage a garden, but those issues certainly don’t need to stop us from enjoying such a beneficial activity. With a little help, a few adjustments and some new, ergonomically friendly garden tools, you can keep calm and garden on.

Train Your Brain

Flying With a Wheelchair 74

Travelling with a wheelchair can be daunting for many wheelchair users for many reasons. We have put together eight simple tips to help make your flying experience easier.

TraveLite Aluminium Transport Chair SEE PAGE 57


Ensure you pass on detailed instructions about how to move and store your wheelchair. 1. Be organised Being too organised is never a bad thing when it comes to jetting off somewhere new, especially if you are travelling on your own. When planning to travel with a wheelchair, the first thing you should do is contact your airline to confirm any particular requirements such as airport assistance or seating requirements (for example, location, leg room, adjustable armrest). Having these arrangements in place beforehand will hopefully make your check-in experience stress-free.

2. Give yourself plenty of time at the airport Try your best to check-in at least two hours early for your flight because the time it takes to wait in lines, go through security and get some last minute dutyfree items always takes longer than you would expect. Not forgetting you will need to be at your gate at least 45 minutes before departure time.

3. Don't overpack You will have to carry with you what you bring; even when checking in your luggage, you will still have to carry it to the check-in point and from the baggage claim. Remember all medically-necessary items travel for free, but it is a good idea to bring any prescriptions with you.

6. Prepare to be first on the plane and last off it Passengers needing assistance are the first ones on, and last ones off the plane so keep this in mind when travelling.

4. Security may not be as bad as you fear Going through security can be a lengthy, stressful process for all of us but it is important to remember that airport security is in place for our safety. When travelling with a wheelchair, you may get to bypass the long queues, and you don't have to take off your shoes if you can't. However, if you can't walk unassisted, you must submit to a manual screening where your wheelchair will be tested too.

5. Give the cabin crew specific instructions Nobody knows your wheelchair better than you do, so ensure you pass on detailed instructions about how to move and store your wheelchair to help make sure it doesn’t get damaged. As another precaution against damage or loss of your wheelchair, it is a good idea to remove all detachable parts before your wheelchair is stored and label the chair with your name, address and destination airport. Perhaps even take a photo of your wheelchair before you leave it with the cabin crew so if there is any damage you can have a record of how you left it.

7. Prepare to be asked questions about your wheelchair

type as if it is a collapsible manual wheelchair this could be stored easily in the cabin depending on available space. However if you are travelling with an electric wheelchair, to store your wheelchair safely on board your chosen airline will need to know your wheelchair type, dimensions, weight, the number of batteries installed, type of battery and instructions for preventing inadvertent operation. The type of questions and allowances may vary depending on your chosen airline, so it is a good idea to check with your airline beforehand. During the flight, your wheelchair will be stored conveniently for immediate availability on arrival, and your carrier will supply you with an onboard wheelchair to take you to and from your seat.

8. Take out insurance Many insurance companies will cover you for taking your wheelchair abroad; this covers you for damage and theft. It's a very good idea to look into insurance before you go for complete peace of mind, it doesn't cost as much as you think and you may even get free cover for a trial period. We hope these tips will help you on your next adventure. Happy Flying!

When you arrive at your boarding gate, staff will usually ask questions about your wheelchair. The questions will vary depending on your wheelchair

Train Your Brain

Train Your Brain Do you dabble in Scrabble? No? So how do you do at Sudoku? Are you numero uno at card game Uno? Perhaps it’s time to begin a gin rummy hobby? A common belief is that as we grow older, it is important to keep one’s mind active – and so playing such mentally stimulating games sounds like a good idea.

Pocket Magnifier

96

SEE PAGE 157


In fact, you could say it’s a no-brainer to go train your brain. The idea is that we should exercise our grey matter to keep our brain in peak condition, in the same way as we do a physical workout to keep our bodies in top shape. ‘Use it or lose it’ is one theory about delaying cognitive ageing – studies have found people who do more mentally stimulating activities have better-thinking skills in older age.

Taking up new activities may bring benefits such as increased engagement

Age UK cautions that evidence for specific 'brain training' programmes remains inconclusive, however, and highlights research finding limited evidence that such activities can enhance our overall thinking skills in senior years.

Age UK concludes that we can’t say for certain which activities might definitely help keep your thinking skills sharp, but doing things we enjoy is important for quality of life and wellbeing anyway. Taking up new activities may bring benefits such as increased engagement with other groups of people – playing cards or board games is a good opportunity to interact in a fun way with anyone, from friends of a similar age to young grandchildren.

The charity indicates there is some weight to the belief that the most beneficial activities for us in later life might be doing things we’ve never done before. Go challenge yourself in a new way, like learning a new language or a musical instrument, or take up a productive hobby such as digital photography or sewing. Such hobbies resulted in better memory performance in participants, according to one larger scale study.

Laugh Out Loud

Laugh Out Loud!

Can you remember the last time you had a really good laugh? The kind of uncontrollable, cry-laughing where you’re so happy in that moment your belly and cheeks start to ache? Thought of a moment? Does that moment occur often? If so you’re one of the lucky ones.

Did you know? laughing could be the answer to being healthier, happier and calmer. Fabric Arm Sling

The sad truth is, as we get older we not only lose our innocence and our imagination but often also lose our sense of humour. We often don’t have the time and sometimes even the inclination to laugh due to being surrounded by ongoing day-to-day stresses. Research shows that children laugh on average around 400 times a day in comparison to adults who laugh just 17 times a day if we’re lucky! So why is laughing the best medicine? Studies show that laughing strengthens your immune system, eases stress, helps against heart disease, improves mood, pain tolerance and generally improves wellbeing. This is due to laughter promoting the release of positive hormones such as serotonin, which consequently stimulates feelings of happiness and joy. While the intake of extra oxygen during laughter can even boost the circulatory system. The positive effects of laughter are both psychological and physiological. Here are 15 reasons why we should laugh more;

Physiological benefits; 9. Improves mental functioning 10. Exercises and relaxes muscles 11. Improves respiration 12. Stimulates circulation 13. Decreases your stress hormones 14. Increases immune system defences 15. Increases the production of endorphins Who knew a good old belly laugh could improve more than just your sense of humour? The best part is laughter is priceless and so much fun! After all, who doesn’t love to laugh? So let’s all take time out of our day and focus on the good things, smile, count our blessings and actively seek more opportunities for laughter! The doctor insists!

Psychological benefits;

Tilt In Space Riser Recliner A beautiful, affordable, lift and recline chair featuring a classic design with detailed piping on the arm and a selection of fabrics to choose from.

Brown

Cream

Offering more spinal support and greater leg elevation than a standard recliner, the Tilt in Space chairs are ideally suited for those with hip, back and delicate skin conditions. In the full recline position, the user benefits from an almost ‘zero gravity’ position, with the chair offering total support to all the body. Due to the way Tilt in Space works, the fixed rotation to the semi-rest position is at the same angle, so will not stretch or pull at the lower back. This fixed rotation follows through to fully reclined, taking the body comfortably into the neutral or zero gravity position, whilst giving full support to the body.

Cholesterol Busting Foods

Cholesterol Busting Foods Heart UK says that one of the causes of high cholesterol can be an unhealthy lifestyle, they also say that by making significant changes to your diet, you should see a slight reduction in your cholesterol levels within 3 or 4 weeks.

236

SEE PAGE 150

Comfort Grip Cutlery


Oats A bowl of porridge or overnight oats for breakfast could be the key to lower cholesterol levels. Why? Oats contain a rich form of soluble fibre called beta-glucan which helps lower cholesterol levels. It is recommended to consume 3g of beta glucan each day as part of a balanced diet.

Barley Barley is found in many cereals, soups, stews, coffee substitutes, whisky and some beers. Like oats, barley also has the benefit of lowering cholesterol levels. Why? Barley is also very rich in beta-glucan. Beta glucan lowers cholesterol by binding the excess cholesterol in the intestines preventing it from being absorbed.

Apples Apparently, an apple a day can keep the doctor away with it being another cholesterol buster! Why? Apples are extremely low in saturated fat like all fruits and vegetables, therefore eating them helps to keep saturated fat intake low. Apples are also rich in the soluble fibre pectin which forms a gel with water, this then binds to excess cholesterol preventing it from being absorbed in the body.

Beans Beans, peas and lentils are all a beneficial source of cholesterollowering fibres. Why? Beans and other legumes are extremely high in both soluble and insoluble fibres. The soluble fibres bind to excess cholesterol when in the body and in turn lower cholesterol levels.

Nuts

Slicing Helper

A handful of nuts to snack on each day has many health benefits, including lowering cholesterol levels. Why? All nuts contain a rich amount of soluble fibre, vegetable protein, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, monounsaturated fats, natural plant sterols and many beneficial plant nutrients. It is recommended to have 30-35g of nuts each day.

Avocados Introducing avocados into your diet is an easy way to reduce your cholesterol levels. Why? Avocados are packed with monounsaturated fats and natural plant sterols which are proven to lower cholesterol levels.

Rapeseed oil Switching your cooking oil to rapeseed oil could be a simple solution to lowering cholesterol levels. Why? Rapeseed oil contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids and less saturated fat in comparison to many other oils which have high amounts of saturated fat that can increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood. By replacing these oils with monounsaturated alternatives such as rapeseed oil, it can make a big difference to lowering cholesterol levels.

SEE PAGE 151

Read about all the other causes of high cholesterol on the Heart UK website.

Plant Sterols & Stanols Plant sterols and stanols are found naturally in seeds, nuts, whole grains, vegetable oils, fruits and vegetables. Having a balanced diet containing these natural foods can also lower high cholesterol. Why? Plant sterols and stanols lower cholesterol levels by blocking cholesterol absorption in the body. It is recommended to have a minimum of 1.5-2.4g plant sterols and stanols each day to reduce cholesterol.

Bathroom Safety At Home

Bathroom Safety At Home Falls are the number one reason that older people are taken to the Accident and Emergency department. There are many different reasons, and normally a combination of risk factors, why people fall in later life. One of the main reasons is simply the natural deterioration in a person’s muscle strength and eyesight associated with their natural ageing process. This can cause difficulty with balance, bending and stepping.

Foxton Stationary Shower Chair SEE PAGE 263

274


Falls are not inevitable, Falls are preventable. According to the NHS, 6 out of 10 falls happen in the home or garden with one of the most common places to fall being in the bathroom. Wet and slippery surfaces, poor lighting, loose mats and flooring, difficulty stepping over and into a bath or shower, bending to wash and clean combined with the necessity to visit the bathroom more often especially at night creates a multitude of worrying potential hazards.

1 in 10 older people who fall become afraid to leave their homes in case they fall again, causing increased isolation and reduced independence. Statistic by Age UK Most importantly though healthcare experts believe the vast majority of falls could be prevented with some fairly modest changes to a person’s lifestyle and home. NHS recommendations include regular strength and balance exercises, a medication review, a vision test and a home hazard assessment.

The following safety steps will help minimise bathroom falls before they happen:

⊲ Use high-wattage light bulbs in

ceiling lights and lamps so you can clearly see on the path from the bedroom to the bathroom, and in the bathroom itself. Remove clutter, trailing wires and frayed carpets Make sure your bathroom floor is dry, immediately mop up any spillages and use non-slip rugs. Do not walk on slippery floors in socks or tights. Avoid wearing loose fitting, trailing clothes that may trip you up Make sure towels, soap and shampoo are within easy reach of the sink, bath and shower. Organise your bathroom so that stretching and bending are kept to a minimum, and to avoid bumping into things Add grab bars in and beside the toilet, bath and shower. Use a non-slip mat in the bath and shower Install a toilet safety frame to ensure ease of getting on and off the toilet Have your eyes checked at an Opticians at least once a year and visit a Chiropodist for any foot problems Ask your GP to review medications to identify those that may cause dizziness or drowsiness

Exercise to Ease Arthritis

Exercise To Ease Arthritis

288

If arthritis causes you pain, you may not want to move. However not exercising can increase stiffness, harm the tissues in and around your joint and in the long term your muscles will weaken, making movement even more challenging. Whereas keeping active boosts energy, helps to keep your joints supple and reduces pain.


Keep your joints supple with a new low impact exercise.

Yoga Yoga is very popular for people with arthritis as not only does it combine exercise, breathing, and relaxation. It is a gentle way of promoting flexibility and strength in mind, body, and spirit. Chair yoga is the mildest form of yoga and is particularly joint-friendly. The exercises consist of performing yoga poses from the comfort of a chair.

Pilates Pilates is very similar to yoga as they are both effective low-impact exercises that put little strain on the joints; however, Pilates focuses more on targeting the deep postural muscles and strengthening the body from head to toe.

Tai chi

AntiSlip Jar Opener

SEE PAGE 143

Tai chi is a form of martial art which calmly exercises the body. It consists of slow, gentle, flowing movements. Tai Chi is very popular amongst people with arthritis as it improves energy, fitness, and balance. As well as Tai Chi strengthening joints and relieving tension, it also helps correct body posture and improves circulation and flexibility.

Swimming Swimming is a very popular exercise as it is low-impact and can be an especially effective exercise for people living with rheumatoid arthritis. If you do suffer from arthritis, it is recommended to only stick to front crawl and backstroke and to swim in a well-heated pool as the warm water also works with you to help ease your aching joints. Aqua aerobics is another physical activity that you can do in the swimming pool as it involves a variety of light resistance exercises and the water helps cushion the joints and build muscle with minimal risk of discomfort or injury.

Cycling Studies show that regular low-intensity cycling can help reduce the pain of osteoarthritis. A gentle cycle on a flat route in the open air or a short pedal on an exercise bike at the gym can help support your joints while strengthening the knees too. Joining a gym and attending classes can also be extremely beneficial to someone with arthritis, sometimes gyms even tailor classes to be aimed at people over 60 or for those with limited mobility. Also, if you are considering joining a gym, try and find one with access to a Jacuzzi, Sauna or Steam room as the heat benefits will help ease arthritis pain.
