FRIDAY, Nov. 3, 2017 -- It's a frequent occurrence: A single, childless older man without a designated caregiver suffers a debilitating stroke, and is sent to a nursing home for the remainder of his life.
New research shows that male seniors who find themselves in this situation have triple the odds of being sent to a nursing home within five years of their attack, compared to men with a caregiver. A similar risk wasn't seen for women.
WEDNESDAY, Oct. 18, 2017 -- When it comes to exercise, can you get too much of a good thing?
