Enjoying Life With Limited Mobility | Executive Care of Great Neck

Enjoying Life With Limited Mobility

Whether temporary or permanent, mobility issues can put a cramp in your loved one’s lifestyle. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to remain the case!

U.S. Census numbers report 47 million seniors living in our country, and this means that there are plenty of mobility issues being experienced. According to a survey in 2014, 40% of those 65 and older have at least one disability. Some two-thirds admitted to having issues with walking or climbing.

Just because your loved one has limited mobility doesn’t mean enjoying life to the fullest has to stop.

Fun Activities for Those With Limited Mobility

Mobility issues can be brought on by things like arthritis, stroke and other injuries.

Your loved one can turn the focus from mobility issues to getting back to fun with these ideas:

  1. Scrapbooking. There’s nothing better than putting old family photos into some creative scrapbooks. Your loved one will enjoy reliving those memories of old, and you can enjoy hearing some fun stories from the past.
  2. The great outdoors. We all love the boost being outdoors can provide, and elderly can be no different. Make sure your loved one is enjoying the warm summer months from shaded areas and isn’t overheating.
  3. Exercise options. Your loved one can enjoy chair exercises, chair yoga and even focus on balance through walker exercises. Limited mobility does not mean the end of exercise.
  4. Bingo. Bingo is not only a way to get out of the house and have some fun, but it also serves as a form of socialization. Quite the winning combo!
  5. Embracing the creative side. Breaking out some activities like painting, drawing, sculpting and more can not only influence your loved one’s creative side, but actually help him or her fight back feelings of depression and anxiety.

As you can see, limited mobility does not have to be the end of your loved one’s fun. Instead, simple adjustments just need to be made.

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.
