Unlock COVID-Safe Senior Activity Center Services With In-Home Care
To help seniors sheltering in place, the Southlake Senior Activity Center released a number of virtual activities on their website. Today’s post explains how our in-home care team can help your loved ones get the most out of these resources for more sustainable sheltering-in-place during COVID-19.
Unlock COVID-Safe Senior Fitness Activities With In-Home Care
The Centers for Disease Control recommends that seniors get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. For those who cannot meet these guidelines, the CDC recommends as much physical activity as their abilities and conditions allow.
To help North, Texas seniors hit these exercise goals while sheltering in place, the Southlake Senior Activity Center recently released a number of virtual and remote fitness resources, including:
- The Darebee Sofa Workout, perfect for seniors of any fitness level, and requiring no equipment beyond your living room sofa! Our in-home care teams can help your loved one access this resource, schedule a regular time slot for their workout, clear the exercise area, and clean up afterwards. We also provide motivation and safety monitoring throughout, so your loved one’s exercise is always as safe as it is enjoyable.
- The Darebee Anti-Anxiety Workout, designed to fight stress and anxiety, could not have come at a better time for many seniors who find themselves cooped up at home and wound up by the 24/7 COVID-19 news cycle.
- Zumba workouts for seniors who love to dance. Our in-home care team can set this free video up for your loved one, clear a makeshift dance floor, and load up all of their favorite songs for a fun and easy fitness option.
The Southlake Senior Activity Center also offers options for chair yoga, hula hoop classes, rehab workouts, and more. Whatever fits your loved one’s idea of fitness fun, our in-home care team can accommodate. And once the pandemic threat period is passed, we can also provide safe transportation to your loved one’s favorite exercise classes, yoga studio, or group fitness activities.
Unlock Southlake Senior Center Cooking Tutorials With In-Home Care Assistance
To help pass the time in a fun and productive manner, the Southlake Senior Activity Center also recommends exploring a new series of cooking tutorials from Instructables. Explore endless recipes and culinary techniques online, and come out of quarantine with some new skills under your belt!
Our in-home care team will help your loved one access these recipes and instructionals, gather necessary ingredients and supplies, then dive in alongside them for a fun afternoon activity. Of course, if your loved one is more into the eating than the assembly, we can do all the prep work for them, effectively putting on a live cooking show in the comfort and safety of their home, then serving up the end result.
