How In Home Care Services Can Help With Balance Exercises

Jul 7, 2017 by Samantha Pfeifer

If your loved one has not been performing balance exercises, he or she may be more prone to falls, which could result in serious injuries. Falls are one of the most common accidents that occur in seniors over age 65, so it is important that your loved one is practicing and working on his or her balance. If you are unable to monitor their exercises or be with them all hours of the day, in home care services may be the best choice. One of the care technicians at Comfort Keepers can ensure that your family member is able to exercise in a safe environment and perform all the exercises without injuring themselves.

When you sign up for our in home care services, our caregivers will work closely with your loved one to ensure that he or she does not struggle when it comes to any of the balance exercises. In fact, our team will show your loved one how to do the exercise first and then assist them in performing it on their own. We will uphold your loved one’s dignity the entire time and support them physically and mentally.

Some of the balance exercises our in home care services team will help your senior perform include:

  • Squats with both or one leg
  • Side, front, and back leg raises
  • Balancing on one foot with the other foot elevated
  • Leg swings
  • Walking up and down stairs
  • And more

 In addition to balance exercises, our in home care services team will look around your loved ones home and analyze it for any fall risks and then create an action plan to remove the risks.

If you are interested in any of our services for your loved one, call Comfort Keepers today to discuss your options.
