Senior Body: Staying Active with In Home Senior Care in Nashville
How in home senior care throughout Nashville and surrounding areas can make a difference with a more energetic lifestyle
If your aging loved one is choosing to age in place, remaining in their own home throughout their golden years, they value their independence and ability to make their own choices about lifestyle and everyday activities. At Comfort Keepers Nashville, we know you want the best for your aging family members, but it isn’t always easy to intervene when lifestyle changes might benefit your loved one. In home senior care can help encourage healthy habits through support and facilitation, making it easier for seniors to take good care of themselves.
It’s not healthy for any of us to lead sedentary, still lifestyles. We all benefit from regular activity, which improves physical health, brain activity, and emotional health. For seniors, physical activity is especially important, and can be a big way to help ease symptoms of aging or other health problems. In home senior care providers can work with your loved one’s physicians, physical therapy providers, nutritionists, and other experts to make sure your loved one can make the best choices for themselves throughout their day.
Some in home senior care activities that can help keep seniors active include facilitating safe yard work or house work, engaging your loved one in their hobbies, mobility assistance around and outside the house, and even dancing in the living room! All activity is good activity, as long as it’s safe and comfortable for your loved one.
Getting Out and Enjoying Life
Of course, in home senior care doesn’t mean that our clients are stuck indoors all day! Each of our care providers can help facilitate excursions that increase the opportunity for activity and exercise for our clients, such as trips to parks or nature paths, accompanying clients in neighborhood walks, or exploring community venues and events. We can also provide transportation to doctor’s appointments, therapy appointments, and other care providers your loved one may need to access.
Please note that you should always consult with a physician before beginning any exercise program. Comfort Keepers does not prescribe to any particular activities or exercise regimens. Our compassionate care providers will help to facilitate recommended activities or programs from our clients’ physicians.
