Care for seniors mind and body is key. One of the biggest indicators of health as people age is the amount of activity they get. Physical exercise, even if it’s low impact like walking or swimming, is critically important for care for seniors. Physical exercise helps seniors stay mobile and keeps muscles strong.
This is why our care for seniors in Calgary, AB makes physical activity a regular part of Interactive Caregiving™, our holistic approach to senior care. At Comfort Keepers® we know how important it is to care for the whole person and that includes regular exercise for both physical and mental health.
