12 Ways to Maintain Mobility in Older People
When a person’s mobility decreases, they begin to lose independence and that, in turn, can severely affect their self-confidence. Sometimes a loss of mobility can be a natural occurrence arising from old age, but it would be incorrect to think that it is an automatic consequence of entering one’s senior years. With a few simple actions, an older person can be happily able to move around of their own volition.
Some of the ways in which to maintain mobility are obvious and self-explanatory – a decent and consistent amount of moderate exercise, in alliance with a healthy diet, will naturally make you well able to move about.
Other important actions which might not come to mind so readily include simple balancing routines and perhaps some home renovations like installing stairlifts or walk-in showers. Whether these become necessary will depend on how badly your mobility is affected, but if they help you in moving around independently, they’re worth the investment.
