At Home Senior Care Helps You Stay Physically Fit In Guelph, ON
Discover how Comfort Keepers’ at home senior care in Guelph, ON can help you maintain your physical fitness and remain independent.
As we age, physical activities may not be as easy as they once were. Seniors tend to lose muscle mass and flexibility which can impact strength and balance. In addition to increased fall risks, these changes may also make it more difficult to perform any number of daily living activities. Some of the most common signs that you or a loved one may require at home senior care include being forgetful or confused when it comes to medication, frequent fatigue, inability to perform certain tasks around the home, and the loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable.
Regular physical exercise can help reverse some of the effects of aging on the senior body. It can also help extend the time you can live independently with and without assistance. This is a key reason that Comfort Keepers makes physical activity a key component of their trademarked model of at home senior care, Interactive Caregiving. With Interactive Caregiving, you are encouraged to take an active role in your own care plan. The physical activity not only improves muscle strength, dexterity, and fitness; but it also improves feelings of independence, self-esteem, and quality of life.
All of Comfort Keepers’ supports and services are based on a completely individual and personalized care plan. This includes physical fitness supports.

Whether you need transportation to the gym or senior center, companionship while walking the mall, mobility assistance, help with a physical therapy regimen, or other support, Comfort Keepers will provide the assistance and support you need to maintain or improve your physical fitness.
Staying active helps prevent future accidents, illnesses, and diseases while lowering the risk of depression, dementia, and falls. It helps maintain muscle tone, flexibility, and balance; boosts the immune system; and can improve your mood.
