4 Tips for Preventing Hair Loss

As you age, the pigmentation and texture of your hair changes. It also gets thinner. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help minimize hair loss and keep your locks healthy as you age.

  • AVOID STYLES THAT PULL Over time, consistently wearing your hair in cornrows, tight braids, top buns and ponytails, can damage your hair follicles and lead to permanent hair loss.
  • LIMIT YOUR USE OF HOT TOOLS Hairdryers, hair straighteners and curling irons can all damage your hair by excessively drying it out and, consequently, making it more likely to fall out.

  • WASH YOUR HAIR LESS OFTEN As you age, your scalp produces less sebum, resulting in your hair becoming drier. Therefore, you should avoid washing your hair every day. You should also use a mild shampoo that won’t strip your hair of its natural oils.
  • EAT A NUTRIENT-RICH DIET Protein and iron deficiencies are linked to hair loss, so make sure you incorporate enough of these nutrients in your diet. Also, make sure to eat lots of leafy greens, as they’re packed with an array of vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair including folate and vitamins A and C.

In addition, taking certain medications can lead to hair loss. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to find out if the prescribed drugs you take might be causing your hair to thin.

We pay attention to residents' Dietary Needs, According to Diabetes Canada, one in three Canadians are diabetic or pre-diabetic. Research shows that for those in the 65+ age bracket, the prevalence of this disease is even higher. The overall health of seniors with diabetes can be impacted by many variables that our staff needs to consider. Many of our residents at Chateau Glengarry live with this condition, and we aim to consistently provide the best care to prevent, control, and manage diabetes. What’s our approach? Read on to find out. Every one of our seniors with diabetes has dietary needs and we plan our menu to meet these. We make sure they are receiving sufficient proteins, vegetables and healthy fats. To make the food more appealing, we like to incorporate as much seasonal fresh harvest from our local producers as possible. And we either limit or avoid food we know can trigger a rise in blood sugar levels. We pride ourselves on staying abreast of new research and technologies that can help our residents. With this lovely lady, we introduced her to a new, innovative sensor and glucometer called the FreeStyle Libre that allowed her to avoid the constant finger-pricking she previously underwent to check her blood sugar levels. As most of you know, monitoring the B/S is crucial to optimizing a person’s insulin levels. Along with this new tool, and regular and balanced meals, we were able to work with this lovely lady to stabilize her B/S. As a result, she has more freedom to relax and enjoy her new home. If you or your loved one is living with diabetes and considering moving to an independent living facility like ours, be sure to ask questions related to diabetes-specific care. After all, quality of life, comfort, and top-notch care is the priority, isn’t it? We think so!
