Seniors under your care need not just emotional support for their well-being but also help in regular physical activity for a healthy, enjoyable life. The long-term benefits of daily workouts are numerous. It does not take an overwhelming amount of exercise to keep healthy. In fact, low-impact workouts can do wonders for anyone, especially seniors.
What is low-impact exercise? Basically, it is any workout that allows you to keep at least one foot on the ground at all times. This is hugely beneficial for those with limited mobility or who suffer from chronic pain. The intensity level is enough to elevate the heart rate just like a high-impact routine does. However, it is just easier on the body. For safe, enjoyable workout sessions, our
professional caregivers can aid you or your elderly loved on a daily basis.
