Physical activity helps us stay healthy. Whatever your age is, keeping yourself fit and active is essential in achieving overall wellness. For this reason, we do our best to help seniors in our assisted living facility in doing simple exercises that stimulate their bodies.
It is not a secret that aging often entails limitations in physical function or mobility. This might seem like a good reason to stop exercising, it is not the biggest obstacle. There are a lot of ways seniors can stay active, it’s just a matter of finding a routine that is not strenuous.
Angels Assisted Living, Inc. is a leader in senior care services in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have years of experience in our repertoire, and we have exercise recommendations that work. So here is a list of age-friendly exercises that seniors can do with minimum supervision.
- Walking with our skilled staff and other residents
- Doing chair exercises in their room
- Performing gentle yoga and elderly aerobics
- Doing stretches and one-leg balancing
Exercising is essential because it helps improve a senior’s cardiovascular system. It also promotes muscle health and immunity. However, when it comes to fitness routines, we just need to ensure that our residents are guided to avoid injuries. At the end of the day, their safety is important to us.
