Is Honey Good for the Elderly

Honey’s health benefits are well known. However, make sure to buy raw or organic honey as they contain the core nutrients regular honey often lacks.

Honey is a source of antioxidants. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties. Antioxidants can help reduce the risk of strokes, heart attacks, and even certain types of cancer. Its antifungal and antibacterial properties help kill bacteria, so consuming honey can soothe a sore throat and suppress cough. Honey is also a rich source of probiotics and can help maintain good digestive health.

Furthermore, research shows that the regular consumption of honey can improve memory and reduce anxiety.

Many people aged 65 and older struggle with memory loss and dementia as they age. The daily intake of honey may help prevent or mitigate memory impairments naturally.

Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
