Many families begin their search for assisted living after a traumatic situation that leaves their loved one unable to live independently. It can be a stressful time for everyone as finances, care, and accommodations must be sorted out quickly. A senior can feel like their wings are being clipped as cars and homes are sold or Power of Attorney forms are signed. During these times it’s important to keep things simple.
We have all heard the studies about exercise and how it helps us physically, mentally, and emotionally care for our bodies. But does that really include senior citizens? They're too old to start to exercise right? They can't exercise because what if they fall? Their mental health won't allow them to right? My loved one has arthritis and can't exercise because it will increase the pain right? WRONG!! Studies have proven that exercise in senior citizens will help them in numerous ways.
