What can i do to protect my health?


A great way to protect against health complications is Cranberry Juice! You see, Urinary Tract Infections (UTI's) are the most common infection and often goes undetected in seniors. Being familiar with the signs and symptoms early can help.

Signs to watch for:

  • Foul smelling or cloudy urine
  • Frequent and/or painful urination
  • Decreased appetite
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Possible fever
  • Impaired mental state: Increased confusion
  • Unexplained falls
Here are some tips:
Drink extra fluids and cranberry juice or tablets (OTC). This helps keeps the bacteria from building up and pushes it out of the body. When in doubt, call your primary physician sooner rather than later!
