Caregivers in Downey Help Their Clients Find Motivation to Exercise

dreamstime_355414.jpgFinding the motivation to exercise can be difficult for any age group. It is universally recognized that exercising with a companion increases motivation and stamina. As our elders begin to age, it becomes increasingly difficult to convince them to go for walks and many times we may feel frightened to allow them to go alone. Moreover, we all live busy lifestyles and may not have the time to spend with our loved ones.

Healthy Diets for Seniors and Elderly in Downey, CA

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects about 1 in 3 American adults with the risk becoming higher for Elderly and Senior individuals.  It can lead to heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, and blindness if not controlled.  A healthy diet is one way to control Hypertension.  The DASH Diet designed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is rated the best overall diet by the U.S. News & World Report.  It emphasizes cutting back on sodium and eating lots of fruits and vegetables to get key nutrients such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, protein, and fiber.  You can find all the information you need to know about DASH here, including information about the research behind the diet as well as how to follow the diet.

Following a nutritious diet may not be the easiest feat to accomplish for Elderly and Senior individuals.  Especially for those who live alone, it can be hard to find motivation to cook food at home when they’re only cooking for themselves.  Some Elders and Seniors have chronic illnesses that make grocery shopping and cooking infeasible.  At A-1 Home Care, we can provide experienced caregivers who can prepare heart-healthy meals for your loved one – whether they’re in good health or have a chronic illness.  Even if your loved one is in good health, it’s imperative to maintain healthiness to protect against chronic illness and stay fully functional for years to come.
