Mobility Issues Don’t Have to Mean Boredom | Executive Care of Clearwater

Mobility Issues Don’t Have to Mean Boredom

 

Mobility issues can be encountered by many seniors, perhaps even your loved one. While many may consider limited mobility to be, well, limiting, know that it doesn’t have to be the case.

The U.S. Census reported that approximately 47 million seniors are a part of our country’s population. The U.S. Census also stated that, in 2014, nearly 40% of people 65 and older experienced at least one disability, and approximately two-thirds of that population group experienced walking and/or climbing issues.

While some things may need to change, your loved one’s life does not have to come to a screeching halt due to limited mobility.

The Fun Doesn’t Have to Stop

Certain health circumstances such as arthritis, stroke or injuries due to falling can impede your loved one’s mobility, but that does not mean an exciting life has to come to a boring end.

Here are some of the activities those who struggle with mobility can enjoy and engage in:

  1. Scrapbooking. If your loved one collects photos of days gone by, what a fantastic way for him or her to relive the memories those photos stir up by organizing them into a scrapbook for others to enjoy.
  2. Quality time outside. Nothing can beat the mood booster that being outdoors can provide. With the summer months here, sitting outside in a shaded area can prove a boon for the soul. It’s important that too much time in the heat is not had though.
  3. Exercise options. Just because his or her mobility may be limited, that doesn’t mean exercise stops being an option. Your loved one can enjoy chair exercises, chair yoga, and even focus on balance through walker exercises.
  4. Bingo. Why is it that bingo seems to be considered an older generation activity? But did you know it helps keep the mind sharp, offers a social venue and a little bit of fun competition? Encourage your loved one to participate!
  5. Creative activities. Breaking out some activities like painting, drawing, sculpting and more can not only influence your loved one’s creative side, but actually help him or her fight back feelings of depression and anxiety.

You can help keep things exciting for a loved one who is dealing with a mobility issue. Make sure your loved one knows there are plenty of reasons to get up, dress up and show up and enjoy every day of his or her life!

Know that Executive Care of Clearwater is always ready to step in and help make sure your loved one is leading the life he or she wants and deserves, right in the comfort of home. Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about our in-home care services.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
