Home Caregivers and Senior Health in Canton, GA
How home caregivers can increase seniors’ physical health and safety in Canton, GA and the surrounding areas
Exercise is important to maintaining good health at any age. As we age, we might face more complex circumstances to being safe during exercise: changes in joint health, muscles, mobility and more take place during our golden years. At Comfort Keepers, our home caregivers know the smartest and safest ways to incorporate physical activity into daily schedules while still maintaining comfort and prioritizing health.
While aging might mean a decrease in the pace of everyday life, not all symptoms of aging are normal. Your loved one might need in home care if they are:
- Experiencing abrupt changes in health conditions
- Spending more time in bed or asleep during the day
- Becoming frustrated with everyday tasks or personal care
- Forgetful about medication or not adhering to their medication schedule
- Experiencing emotional disruptions like increased anxiety, anger, or confusion
The home caregivers at Comfort Keepers know that addressing symptoms like these requires a multifaceted approach. That’s why we include physical, mental, emotional, and social health into our care plans, choosing the activities that are recommended for your loved one by physicians, as well as your loved one’s preferences, habits, and hobbies.
Any exercise regimen should always be approved by your loved one’s doctor and medical care team. Our home caregivers know that physical activity can take many forms and should always prioritize your loved one’s safety. Physical activity might mean a walk in a park or assisting your loved one in doing chores around the home or yard. Running errands and shopping trips can also be a great way to incorporate more walking and movement into your loved one’s day or week.
Physical activity boosts the immune system, heart health, and mental health, and can help your loved one feel more engaged, energized, and happy. If you’re helping to care for a loved one who may not be getting the physical activity that helps them feel their best, Comfort Keepers is ready to help.
