Tips on How to Make Exercising Enjoyable for Seniors

Tips on How to Make Exercising Enjoyable for Seniors

As they say, the best exercise is one where you can enjoy yourself.

However, we at My Healing Angels Home Care Services, as a provider of senior care services in Conyers, Georgia, can understand that ensuring your senior’s enjoyment may be difficult, especially if you have only been their primary caregiver for a while.

To help you, we have listed some tips on how to make exercising enjoyable for seniors.

  • Know their capabilities
    It’s easy to underestimate your senior’s capability considering their age and/or condition if any. To make sure that they can execute their exercise, do a skills assessment test first. Need help? Our caregivers are trained to assist seniors and provide other home care services.
  • Let them choose their exercise or physical activity
    Often, we forget that our seniors are perfectly capable of deciding on their own. Make sure your senior loved one can choose their preferred activity and see how their mood improves and ultimately make their session enjoyable.
  • Communicate clearly and passionately
    Your senior may have problems hearing your instructions or executing steps perfectly, especially if they have a chronic condition, so you must make sure to bring compassion and talk to them in simple terms.
  • Provide a suitable environment
    Your senior loved one will have a hard time exercising in a busy place, such as a traditional gym, especially if they have been receiving in-home dementia care. So, make sure to find them a quiet spot where they can hear your instruction, and you can monitor them without distraction.

We hope the above tips were of help to you. Need assistance? Don’t hesitate to call us!

We also offer personal care services in Georgia for your convenience.
