At some point, there is a day when you have to decide what is best for the older members of the family. Residences are an option, but not all of us are sure that it is the best. For this reason, many families decide to take care of their elders at home and give them the attention they require.
However, the obligations, the world of work and the demands of everyday life allow us to have little time to be at home, do all the tasks and give the necessary care that the elderly require. And this is where LPDS comes into play, with our elderly care service that we carry out hand in hand with an excellent and professional team of Filipinos.
Our experts will execute all the necessary services so that the elderly are well cared for, day after day. They will do some tasks like accompanying them to the doctor, taking a walk with them or attending to the most basic needs, such as eating, going to the bathroom or washing up. They also dedicate their working hours to offering excellent services in order to improve their health status. How? Well, for example, doing daily activities to improve their physical and mental health.
We all know that betting on an active life is opting for health and well-being. For this reason, from LPDS we want to put on the table some of the activities that will be suitable so that the elderly can obtain great benefits on a day-to-day basis.
Activities at home for the older members of the family
Exercising weekly is the engine that helps people have good physical and emotional health. And it is that performing physical activities frequently helps us to:
- Improve digestion.
- Prevent diseases such as osteoarthritis, diabetes and hypertension.
- Control our weight and stay fit.
- Activate our metabolism and our brain.
- Increase confidence and our mood.
- Rest better and fall asleep faster.
- Reduce the risk of dementia.
- Increase muscle strength.
And even if you think that an older person cannot play sports, you are wrong! There are many activities adapted for them that will achieve the same objectives, discussed above. But what kind of activities are we talking about? It is important that they manage to exercise their flexibility, their strength, their resistance, their balance and their mind. So, take note of some exercises that you and your domestic servant can carry out, depending on the age of each person!
- Walk every day.
- Lift small weights or resistance bands.
- Go up and down steps.
- Push against the wall and then stretch your arms.
- Do stretching.
- Execute strength exercises, using a chair, to sit down, get up and do it on tiptoe or stretching one leg or the other.
- Activities to work the mind: sudoku puzzles, puzzles, crossword puzzles…
