This New Year, Take a Fun Senior Care Social Class to Remember!
It’s the beginning of 2017, a perfect time to commit to resolutions that make your life more enjoyable, healthy and fun. So why not join our SeniorFITness wellness program? These classes are specifically designed for seniors, making them safe and enjoyable as well as highly beneficial. Here are some more reasons to join in this New Year from our specialists in New Jersey on home help services for the elderly.
- Improve strength, balance and mobility: As we get older, it becomes more and more difficult to lead a physically active life – but, at the same time, we all want to maintain our independence. Whether your goals are to move easily and without getting out of breath while walking, to get out and join a local walking club or to get back to old hobbies you once loved like dancing, a senior wellness program will help you achieve it.
- Essential fall prevention: Falls are one of the greatest concerns for seniors, their families and caregivers alike. Not only are we more likely to fall as we get older, the consequences of falls can be far more serious – resulting in trips to the emergency room and long recovery periods rather than the usual bumps and bruises that fade away. One of the best ways to prevent falls is to help ensure that you are steady on your feet, and this means working on core strength, keeping fit and staying as active as possible. Joining a wellness program specifically for seniors is a great idea, as trainers are skilled exercise physiologists who know exactly how to work with you to bring gentle but rewarding results.
- Recover after hospitalization, operations or illness: After a fall, an illness or a stay in hospital, many seniors feel far weaker than they did before and struggle to recover quickly. SeniorFITness is managed by rehabilitation specialists who understand the specific needs of seniors and will work with you to help speed up your recovery.
- It’s fun and social: This aspect is often overlooked, but having a healthy social life is just as important as caring for your body and mind. Senior wellness programs are a great way to meet new people, and the atmosphere of teamwork, support and encouragement is a wonderful motivator for helping you achieve your goals.
