Exercise will always be beneficial for people of all ages especially seniors. Encouraging them to exercise is part of the home care services that we offer. The following are some of our tips to help you motivate your senior loved ones into exercising:
- Join them.
Anyone would love to have someone to exercise with. It’s more fun that way! Make them feel that they can count on you to be there for them.
- Be realistic.
Tell them why you want them to work out. Give them goals that they need to achieve but you have to be realistic. Do not let them expect something unattainable.
- Set a schedule.
The key is consistency. Be consistent with the time and the program so that they will have something to look forward to. This will also help them get in the habit of exercising.
