Don’t Let Limited Mobility Impact Your Loved One’s Fun | Executive Care of Fort Myers

Don’t Let Limited Mobility Impact Your Loved One’s Fun

Whether temporary or permanent, mobility issues can put a damper on anyone’s life. Luckily, your loved one’s fun doesn’t have to be cut back by limited mobility.

U.S. Census numbers report 47 million seniors living in our country, and this means that there are plenty of mobility issues being experienced. It was discovered in 2014 that 40% of those 65 and older have at least one disability. Two-thirds of those who responded to a survey said they had issues with walking or climbing.

Just because your loved one has limited mobility, though, doesn’t have to mean fun comes to a halt.

Fun Ideas for Those With Mobility Issues

You loved one doesn’t have to remain trapped at home if he or she suffers from mobility issues due to things like arthritis, strokes and injuries.

These five activities are just a handful of the options your loved one can have to keep the fun going:

  1. Scrapbooking. Does your loved one have oodles of old photos packed away in boxes? They could easily be put into scrapbooks! Not only is it great storage for the photos, but it also gives your loved one the chance to think back on old memories and share family stories.
  2. Outdoor time. Being outdoors can give anyone a mood lift, regardless of their age. Your loved one can enjoy the nice summer months from the safety of a shaded area, making sure he or she doesn’t get too overheated.
  3. Exercise. Limited mobility doesn’t mean the end of exercise, it just means exploring different options. There are chair exercises and chair yoga classes your loved one could enjoy. There are even balance exercises for those using a walker.
  4. Bingo. It may seem stereotypical, but don’t count out the game of bingo! Not only is it a fun outing, but it’s also a way for your loved one to get some socialization in.
  5. Creative activities. Things like painting, sculpting, crafts, etc. can be a way for your loved one to combat depression and anxiety.

Limited mobility no longer has to be something that keeps your loved one trapped at home with nothing to do.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
