Finding Fun Adventures for Seniors Who Lack Mobility | Executive Care of Toms River

Just because seniors may possibly experience mobility issues, either on a temporary basis or for the long run, doesn’t mean that they are no longer able to have fun and enjoy life.

The U.S. Census reported that approximately 47 million seniors are a part of our country’s population. The 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.

If you have a family member or friend who experiences a lack of mobility, he or she can still enjoy a good quality of life and experience a multitude of fun activities.

Don’t Stop Having Fun

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.

Let’s take a look at some of the activities those who struggle with mobility can 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. Spending time outdoors Being outdoors is natural medicine when it comes to loneliness and boredom for your loved one. Just to sit outside in a protected area is invigorating in the spring, summer and fall. However, make sure he or she can maintain a comfortable body temperature and stay hydrated.
  3. Regular exercise. Exercise is not impossible just because movement is limited. Many places offer chair yoga and chair exercise sessions. Even those who use a walker can incorporate these exercises into their daily routine while working on their balance.
  4. Bingo. Why is it bingo seems to be considered an older generation activity? But did you know it helps keep their minds sharp, offers a social venue and a little bit of fun competition? Encourage your loved one to participate!
  5. Creative pursuits. Many times painting, crafting or sculpting is a way to release stress while getting lost in the task. Encourage your loved one to get out there and show off his or her creativity while having a good time!

Keeping things exciting and fun should not be only for those without mobility issues. If there is limited mobility, there are many things to get up, dress up and show up for! Encourage your special person to try some of the above ideas out. He or she will be glad you did.

Know that Executive Care of Toms River 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.
