Unlock COVID-Safe Activities For Seniors In Clinton Township
Today’s post explains how Always Best senior services can unlock COVID-safe social and fitness activities for older adults in Clinton Township, MI. Call (586)-690-7500 for a free home care consultation.
Always Best Senior Services Create COVID-Safe Exercise Opportunities
There’s plenty of research backing the benefits of getting mom or dad moving. According to the CDC’s “Surgeon General Report,” senior exercise programs can:
- Maintain the ability to live independently and reduce the risk of serious slip-and-fall injuries
- Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and diabetes
- Improve stamina and muscle strength to reduce the limitations imposed by chronic, disabling conditions
- Reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression (particularly important during the pandemic), and foster improvements in mood and feelings of well-being
- Control joint swelling and pain associated with arthritis
- Help maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints, and so much more!
Unfortunately, inactivity increases with age, often as a result of safety concerns or lack of motivation, both of which are exacerbated by the current pandemic. In Clinton Township, about one in three men and one in two women engage in no physical activity by age 75.
If you’re looking for COVID-safe solutions to your loved one’s inactivity, Always Best senior services can help! Our staff are always happy to accompany care recipients on gentle walks or help them set up home exercise options, such as the Zoom Fitness classes offered by the Clinton Township Senior Adult Life Center. And once the pandemic threat period has passed, your in-home care team can take mom or dad to their favorite exercise class, senior fitness center, or yoga studio again.
Halt Holiday Blues In Their Tracks With Always Best Senior Services
We often think of holidays as times of celebration, parties, and happy get-togethers, but they can also bring on the blues for seniors, who may think about how quickly time has passed or how much they miss loved ones. This year, with COVID-19 keeping many families apart and putting a halt on holiday plans, the risks of holiday depression are even greater.
But Always Best senior services can help your loved one stay safe while getting the social fulfillment they need to fight the blues this holiday season. Whether you need help hosting a COVID-safe family gathering, or you want mom or dad to participate in Clinton Township’s cheerful drive-thru Christmas parties, we can do it all. And if your loved ones are forced to shelter-in-place over the holidays, our in-home caregivers are able to provide daily social fulfillment through meaningful talks, reminiscing, and mealtime company, as well as by coordinating Zoom chats and phone calls with family members.
