Keep Mom And Dad ‘Fit After 50’ With COVID-Safe In Home Care

Want to keep your aging parents fit after 50 so they can get the most out of their “Golden Years”? Our in-home care team can help.

Read on to learn 3 ways we support seniors’ fitness goals, or call (626)-778-1441 to speak directly with an in-home care coordinator in Pasadena, CA.

1.   Incorporate Healthy, Home-Cooked Meals With Fast Food Convenience

We all know that diet is the foundation of any fitness plan, and yet, according to research by the Center for Disease Control, nearly one-quarter (24.1%) of seniors age 60 and over eat fast food every single day.

Take heart: incorporating more healthy, home-cooked meals is easy with our in-home care services.

In fact, when you’ve got our in-home care team on your side, eating well is even easier than treating yourself with takeout. We take care of the grocery shopping, food preparation, cooking, and clean-up, so all your loved one has to do is show up hungry. If you have any special dietary restrictions or requests, simply inform your in-home care coordinator, and we’ll tailor the menu to your needs and budget.

2.   Find COVID-Safe Opportunities To Exercise With In-Home Care

The importance of physical exercise for seniors is well-established, with multiple studies showing physical activity to be a protective factor for noncommunicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and some types of cancer, as well as a strong predictor of improved mental health, delay in the onset of dementia, and improved quality of life and wellbeing.

What’s more, these benefits are proportional to the amount of exercise seniors complete, so that “higher levels and greater frequency… are associated with reduced risk and improved health in a number of key areas” (Langhammer et al., 2018, p. 1).

If you want to get your loved ones moving a bit more, our in-home care team makes it easy. We can help your loved ones find COVID-safe opportunities to exercise by:

  • Accompanying them on gentle walks outside, maintaining proper social distance from community members
  • Transporting them to-and-from COVID-safe exercise classes for seniors in Pasadena, CA
  • Purchasing home exercise equipment and senior fitness programs to create a COVID-safe home fitness studio
  • Helping seniors connect with COVID-safe virtual exercise classes, like those offered by the Pasadena Senior Center, and more!
