Enjoy a Fall Walk

It’s arguably the best time of the year to be outside. Why not take full advantage of the weather by taking a stroll with a senior through your favorite park, or downtown city blocks?

It goes without saying that physical activity is great for staying in shape. In fact, most health experts agree that exercise is vital for seniors to stay mobile and live longer. But did you know it often provides just as much benefit for the mind? According to research from the Mayo Clinic, exercise improves moods and eases depression and anxiety symptoms – two issues many older adults deal with as they age.

This week, begin a walking, gardening, stretching or any other type of moving regimen with a senior you know. Remember, the most important part of the exercise equation is your companionship.

I am a caregiver for my mom. She’s not walking right now but I still do some movement exercises with her. Some stretching and leg lifts and arm movement as much as she can sitting in the chair. We do it throughout the day for movement.
