Are you a caregiver for a parent or spouse who has Dementia? Do you live in the same city but find that life is busy and as much as you try to care for your parent it never seems like enough? Or does your parent live further away and do you...
When the winter weather arrives, it can be challenging to rise up from the couch where you are warm and relaxed. Do you find yourself staying indoors and avoiding the ice and cold at all costs? In the summer, it’s easy to stay active: we go for evening walks, garden, do lawn work, or join outdoor activity groups. During the winter, it’s important to change your exercises to fit with the season. You could join an indoor mall walking group or join others who cross country ski. Many community centres have winter programs for every fitness level.
Since the beginning of my fitness career, my goal has always been to impact senior’s lives physically, mentally and emotionally and to help them improve their strength and mobility in order to make living in their homes safer. I see how seniors need to laugh, chat and have fun along with the exercises. My approach is to make exercising enjoyable and social, so at the end of the session, the senior client feels amazing and is looking forward to the next session! Over my career working with seniors, I have seen many caregivers burn out and I realize that the more independent their senior parent is, the less of a strain it is on the care giver.
