Do you find yourself tired often? Are you getting enough sleep? Did your doctor mention that working out could help with that…
It was recently reported that more than ninety-seven percent of Americans are said to be “unhealthy.” Approximately fifty percent are obese. The scary part is that one does not have to be obese in order to be “healthy.” Often, most doctors encounter with many people who are patients of all ages who are within their weight zone or even underweight and are in the red zone of being unhealthy.
Not only does a healthy lifestyle consist of a balanced diet or protein, grains, fruits, and vegetables but also physical activity.
Here, at A-1 Home Care, our caregivers have also become companions to many of our seniors due to participating in many activities, including work outs. It is something that our certified caretakers take upon, after they usually consult with their patient’s doctor to see what is a great daily exercise. An opportunity such as working out together does form a strong bond amongst our rooster of caregivers and seniors. It is why our companion service has become more popular over time.
Some fun work outs that most of our seniors find useful and pain-free are (NIH, 2017):
- Cardio (will vary)
- Weightlifting (Strength and speed varies)
