risks of poor nutritional habits increase among elderly people.
Proper nutritional eating habits is important at any age. But, elderly people facing a lot of
difficulties in practicing healthy eating habits. According to the survey, 15 to 50 percent of the
elderly people have poor nutrition and malnutrition. 30 percent of senior citizens skip at least
one meal a day, while another study found that 16 percent of seniors consume fewer than 1000
calories a day, which is insufficient to maintain adequate nutrition. There are some reasons
why risks of poor nutritional habits increase among elderly people. Example of reasons are
forgetfulness, financial burden, depression and loneliness.
Elderly people usually will take medicines more than youth. These medicines from hospital
always has side effects to the elderly people. Certain medicines can reduce appetite or make
food taste differently. If elderly people doesn’t feel hungry because of the medicine side effects,
he/she is less likely to eat even though his/her body does need food and calories. Other than
that, the aging process itself is the main reason to poor nutritional among them. When people
get older, the senses of smell and taste will decrease. So, this affect a person’s ability to taste
and enjoy food.. And of course, if a meal isn’t appetizing, elderly people is less likely to eat as
much as he/she could.
Financial burden also cause elderly people cut back on grocery expenses or always buy cheaper
and less-nutritious food to reduce their budget. Lacking of money can cause lost in nutritious
value. Most of elderly people have limited income. Older people also doesn’t have strong teeth
to chew food for a long time. So, poor dental health such as jaw pain, mouth sores and missing
teeth can make chewing painful.

4. Riskof dental problems and gum diseases tendto increase with age.Discuss common
reasons for tooth decay and steps that a person can take to improve the health of
gums and teeth.
Tooth decay occurs when a sticky acidic film called plaque builds up on our teeth and begins
break down the surface of our teeth. Here are the reasons for tooth decay. Our teeth are fully
covered in a hard, outer coating called enamel. Our mouth is full of bacteria, which combine
with small particles and saliva to form plaque. Every day, a thin film of bacteria called dental
plaque builds up on our teeth. When we consume food and drink high in carbohydrates
especially sugary foods and drinks the bacteria in plaque turn the carbohydrates into energy
they need, producing acid at the same time.
The plaque will first start to soften the enamel which is a hard outer coating of a tooth by
removing minerals from the tooth. Over time, the acids can cause a small hole in the enamel.
This hole is called a cavity which can develop on the surface. This will cause toothache.
Regularly cleaning, brushing our teeth can remove plaque, but if it’s allowed to build up, it
can begin to break down the surface of our tooth. Once cavities have formed in the enamel,
the plaque and bacteria can reach the dentine. Without treatment, plaque and bacteria will enter
the pulp. At this stage, our nerves will be exposed to bacteria, making our tooth very painful.
The bacteria can also infect tissue within the pulp, causing a dental abscess. Tooth decay
typically occurs in teeth at the back of our mouth, known as molars and premolars.
Brushing and flossing your teeth can protect us from decay, but once a cavity happens, a dentist
has to fix it. Other than that, we can protect our teeth from decay by using fluoride toothpaste.
If we are t higher risk for tooth decay such as dry mouth, we might need more fluoride. Our
dentist or dental hygienist may give us a fluoride treatment during an continuous visit. Use
mouth rinse according to dentist advice.
While gum disease begins when plaque builds up along and under the gum line. This plaque
causes infections that hurt the gum and bone that hold teeth in place. Sometimes gum disease
makes our gums tender and bleed later on. A more severe form of gum disease, called
periodontitis needs to be treated by a dentist. If gum disease not treated, this infection can ruin
the bones, gums, and other tissues that support our teeth. Later, teeth may have to be removed.
In order to prevent dental problems and gum disease we should brush our teeth twice a day
with fluoride toothpaste. Most important is brush teeth after each meal and especially before
going to bed. We should clean our teeth daily with dental floss such as the Oral-B Interdental
Brush and Reach Stim-U-Dent. We should floss once a day. We also have to eat nutritious and
balance meals and limit snacks. We should avoid carbohydrates such as candy, chips which
can remain on the tooth surface. If sticky foods are eaten, brush our teeth soon afterwards. We
also must check with our dentist about use of supplemental fluoride, which strengthens our
teeth. We should drink fluoridated water to protect our teeth from dental problems. We should
visit our dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exam. At last but not least, people
who are smoking should quit smoking. Smoking increases our risk for gum disease.
In conclusion, we should take good care of our teeth in order to prevent these kid of dental
diseases. We can prevent before it attack us.

are many steps that we can take to overcome the symptoms, no matter the challenges we face.
There are several causes that contribute to depression in older adults and the elderly people.
The main cause is health problems. Elderly people usually face a lot of health problems such
as illness and disability, pain, damage to body image due to surgery or disease. Another cause
is loneliness. Living alone in a house making them decreased their mobility. They feel like they
loss privileges from their children.
Elderly people also have reduced sense of purpose. They feel purposelessness or loss of identity
due to their retirement or physical limitations on activities. Later on, elderly people also have
fear of death or dying because of health issues. The death of close relations such as friends,
family members or lost of life partner also cause depression among elderly people.
So, now what can a person do to overcome depression feeling? There are a lot of activities that
we can do physically, mentally and socially to overcome depression. First is exercise. Research
has proved that exercise is powerful mood-boosting activity which can relieving depression.

light housework and enjoy a short walk with friends. Exercise can build their strength and boost

in phone. They can join a small group who have similar interests with them and participate in
activities they enjoy. Participating in social works is the best ways to feel better about theirself
and expand their social network.

night. They should maintain a healthy diet. Elderly people cannot eat too much of sugar and
junk food. Choose healthy foods that provide energy and vitamins. Elderly people also can

First of all, a person have to determine the current financial situation. A person need to have a
clear understanding of the level of income, expenses and savings. The aim of financia l
planning is to have the highest net worth possible. If we take a loan to buy an investment, the

rates on the loan.

specific. First for one month, keep track of all our expenses. We should save all our receipts,
make note of how much cash we need versus how much we expense to credit cards and figure
out how much money we have left over when the calendar turns.
After the first month, we should take stock of what we spent. We have to write down what we
actually spent. We can make a simple list of monthly expenses that include monthly income,
household bills, groceries, dining out, gas and emergency medical expenses.
When write budget, we should honest to ourself. It’s our money, so there’s really no sense in
lying to ourself about how much we are going to spend when making a budget. Last but not
least, we should keep track of our budget over time. The great part of a financial planning is
that we have kept track of those changes, giving us an accurate idea of where our money went
during the year.
In conclusion, financial problem will open our eyes to how much money we spend, if they
haven’t been opened already. Financial planning allows us to adjust our spending habits and
put the money towards more meaningful areas.

financial problem in life, sure we will depressed and cannot focus on life achievements. So,
plan well and live a meaningful life.
7. Creating a ‘bucket list’ that consists of a written record of accomplishments and
experiences that a person wishes to achieve in his/her lifetime provides a useful guide.
Discuss tips for creating and completing a person’s bucket list.
Everyone has a mental list of things that they want to do in life before we pass away. Writing
a ‘bucket list’ usually can bring us one step closer towards making some of these goals a reality.
However, this can be harder list to write then we might expect. There are top tips which not
only help us to write meaningful list, but as well as accomplish it as well.
We easily can start to write the list. Before write the list, we should do research in internet or
books. We should check what other people have listed online as this might give us some
inspiration. We might not necessarily want to do what they have listed, but it could give us
some good ideas that we never really thought of.
We cannot prepare a long list at once. We should start small, think of three things we would
really like to do but have never had the chance to do, then add to it as and when we think of
something. This is an evolving process. It may take weeks or months to actually finish a
Furher more, whenever write bucket list, we should think outside the box. Some of the most
interesting things on our list are going to end up being some of the most random. The thing
here is do what we want to do in life, not what everyone else is doing. Other than that, the
person should target different areas of life when preparing bucket list. Usually people tend to
list things related to travel. This is good. But, however, other aspects of life such as hobbies,
finances, careers and relationships are great thing to consider when building out a lifetime list.
The bucket list thigs must be easier to achieve than others. If all the things in the list are difficult
to accomplish such as expensive, the list is not effective. Later on, we will quickly get
discouraged and not make the progress that should be. We also can include things that can do
“TODAY”. Life is short so better get start early. There are plenty of things that we can do right
now that we have always said wanted to do, but just never made the time to start. Well, we
should start now!
Last but not least, we should get goals. Without goals the bucket list doesn’t work. We have to
set deadline or time frame to start action. However, the whole idea is start making steps to do
the things we want in our life. So, this is all about us and our life…Let’s have fun and
accomplish all the things in our bucket list.
