Did you know that you can still exercise when you are care giving? You can also exercise when you’re older? Some people think they are too old to do so but staying active will help keep the mind young and the body more energized for both parties. Look up fun things to do in the community. Many communities have poetry readings at local bookshops, classes at your local library, yoga for seniors, water exercise classes at the YMCA, BINGO and other community activities for all ages.
Many churches have an active senior mission. Making and selling crafts. Joining others outside the home in a like-minded setting even one day a week for a few hours can help prevent depression and caregiver burnout.
Depending on the situation, it may not be appropriate to do physical activities like going outside the house. That is okay! Watching old or new movies, listening to music from their generation, playing scrabble or just talking about past memories can be great ways to stay engaged while promoting health and wellness.
