As anyone over the age of 50 can tell you, being physically active becomes much more difficult as you get older. Exercise appears to have a stronger impact on our bodies and activity-related aches and pains are a daily companion. These are precisely the reasons seniors should stay more active as they age. At Comfort Keepers, our in-home caregivers in Linwood are carefully screened and trained, and they're committed to helping seniors maintain their independence.   Whether your senior loved one is physically able to take brisk walks or they have limited mobility and chair-yoga is a better fit, our caregivers can help them get motivated to move and stay committed to better health.

How In-Home Caregivers Help Keep Seniors Active

In addition to providing companionship and preventing falls and injuries, the caregivers at Comfort Keepers Linwood help seniors stay more active within their physical limits. By virtue of that, they are keeping seniors healthier, happier, and living in the comforts of home for longer.

Here are 4 ways they’re doing this:

1. Motivation

When we're younger, we join gyms and hire personal trainers because we want someone to teach us new exercises and motivate us to practice them on a regular basis. The same holds true for seniors. It enables them to discover new ways to move and stretch, and they need someone who will be there to keep them motivated. Our caregivers are incredibly supportive of our senior clients as they continuously encourage them and help them reach their goals.

2. Activity Selection

A large part of our initial evaluation is to learn about your senior loved one’s overall health and physical condition. Based on this information and your input, we’ll choose activities that your loved one can be challenged by while still enjoying themselves. This could be anything from yoga and stretches to strength-building exercises and walks around the block. 

3. Consistency

Starting to exercise is one thing, but keeping it going is a whole other challenge. At some point in our lives, we begin exercising with the best of intentions, but the days between workouts begin to increase. Our caregivers provide encouragement to our seniors every day, helping them maintain a consistent level of activity.

4. Education

For many seniors, it’s been a long time since they performed any exercises, and many of those exercises are no longer within their physical capabilities. Our in-home caregivers teach seniors new exercises that are safe and realistic for their level of ability. Learning these new exercises not only benefits the senior’s physical fitness, but it’s also good for their mental acuity.
