Comfort Keepers offers senior care services in Altamonte Springs, FL that help to improve your physical health.
Physical exercise can help you avoid falls, improve your mood, and reduce your risk of a number of ailments including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and dementia. While most seniors want to remain physically active and reap the benefits of exercise, many seniors need help to do so safely. Comfort Keepers’ senior care services can help you safely exercise and maintain your physical health.
As we age, the senior body tends to lose muscle mass, flexibility, and strength. This can make daily living activities challenging or even impossible. It can also increase the risk of falls and accidents, lead to isolation, and cause great deals of frustration. Comfort Keepers’ caregivers make physical activity an important part of care through Interactive Caregiving to help you maintain health, safety, independence, and a high quality of life.
In addition to standard homemaking and personal care tasks, Comfort Keepers’ senior care services can help you maintain or even improve your level of physical fitness. From walks around the neighborhood to shopping trips, exercise routines, or even joining a sports league, caregivers are there with physical and emotional support when you need them.
Being physically active on a regular basis helps maintain and improve muscle tone, flexibility, and balance. These are important elements in reducing falls, which rank as the primary cause of accident-related injury and death in seniors over 65 years of age. This is why reducing fall risk by strengthening the senior body and mind is an important element of Comfort Keepers’ senior care services.
Physical activity also helps the senior body fight illness by boosting the immune system, improves moods by releasing endorphins, and increases feelings of freedom and independence, which is a key element of maintaining a high quality of life.
