Physical therapy is important to keep the client mobile. While the insurance may only cover a certain amount of hours, our caregivers can help to keep the exercises going long after the release from the therapist. This helps to avoid atrophy. Having a healthcare professional encouraging the client to continue with their exercises has been proven to be more beneficial to a quicker recovery in most cases than a family member or friend.
Avoid sending your loved ones to a nursing home, in an unfamiliar environment. Our clients never have to leave the comforts of their homes. We provide them with companionship, security and assist with a wide variety of daily activities.
Our caregivers are sweet, caring, skilled, pre-screened, pre-qualified and come with complete background checks. They are here to help your elderly family member enjoy living at home.
We know that it can be tough to find the motivation to get up and exercise, especially as we age. But exercising is important for our health – from nutrition and increased strength all the way down to decreased pain levels! You don’t need a gym membership; there are plenty of things you could do at home – and home care can help seniors stay motivated and active.
Exercise doesn’t have just one type of benefit: it aids in weight loss goals, helps people recover from injuries faster, keeps muscles strong – but most importantly- exercisers sleep better because they report less stress.
With these benefits alone (not counting any other perks!) who wouldn’t want more energy?
All Family Care offers seniors a chance to enjoy an active lifestyle and maintain physical health, even with age or acuity.
They offer support in the form of encouragement as well as assistance when it comes to doctor-prescribed exercise plans.
All Family Care also provides meal preparation services that promote healthy eating habits for clients.
Aerobic exercise is a great way for older adults to maintain their health. These activities are designed specifically with this population in mind, which means they can be done at home by just about anyone!
Aerobic exercises such as walking and dancing help get the heart rate up while improving cardiovascular health. Older people who undertake these types of workouts also have an easier time maintaining healthy weight goals because it’s easy on joints, muscles and bones – all things that start to deteriorate over time due to natural wear-and-tear mechanics.
Strength-building exercises are an option for seniors with limited mobility. They can be done without expensive equipment in the home or anywhere else, and they help to prevent muscle loss that causes difficulty completing daily tasks like walking up a flight of stairs.
Strength-building exercises require no complicated gear beyond what you have around your house – items such as soup cans, books, water bottles filled with sand or rice — anything but heavy furniture!
Stretching before and after exercise can help prevent soreness, improve flexibility which is good for older adults’ physical health. For those looking to increase their already impressive flexibility even more there are online routines available that include yoga or stretching specifically geared towards seniors!
Balance is crucial for a healthy lifestyle. A few easy exercises can help you maintain your balance and avoid falls, which are common in seniors. Yoga, tai chi, or other low-impact activities may be the answer to improving your physical health as well as maintaining good posture that will prevent arthritis symptoms in their advanced stages!
