Encouraging Your Loved One to Exercise | Executive Care of Scottsdale

Did you know that exercise can help promote a long, healthy life and an improved quality of life? It’s true!

And while any person of any age can benefit, seniors especially stand to reap the benefits.

Exercise’s Physical Benefits for Seniors

Finding the motivation needed to exercise regularly can be difficult as we get older and life gets busier, but there are numerous benefits of physical fitness:

Lower blood pressure. Exercising regularly can help moderate blood pressure in anyone, but it’s been shown as particularly helpful for those with chronic high blood pressure.

Decrease in falls. Fall risk is high for older adults, but exercising can help improve balance—and as a result, lower the risk of falling.

Improvement in chronic conditions. Many who suffer from chronic illnesses, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and mental health issues find their symptoms to be more manageable after implementing a regular exercise routine.

Stronger immune system. Exercise provides a boost to overall immunity and makes it easier to fight off disease.

Increase in energy. Exercise is known to increase blood flow and rid the body of stress hormones, leaving the body free to expend energy on other things.

Increase in mobility. As muscles and nerves get used regularly and grow stronger, day-to-day mobility becomes easier.

Exercise’s Psychological Benefits for Seniors

Beyond the obvious physical effects of exercise, regular physical activity helps promote positive brain health and mental health.

Improved mood. Getting regular exercise has been shown to be a mood booster, due to the influx of endorphins released during exercise.

Reduced stress. Exercise decreases stress hormones in the body. This is great for our mental well-being, as well as decreasing blood pressure and overall heart issues.

Improved focus. Physical activity has been shown to lower the risk of developing all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Activities Your Loved One Might Enjoy

Always check with a doctor before beginning an exercise regimen, but here are some exercises experts recommend for older adults:

  • Walking
  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Pilates
  • Yoga

The best approach to exercise is to incorporate a good variety of activities that include exercises that get the heart pumping, exercises that promote balance, and exercises that increase strength.

At Executive Care of Scottsdale, we work alongside you to be sure your loved one is staying healthy and fulfilled in every aspect of life. Get in touch today to learn more about our in-home services.

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.
