Seated Exercises for Older Adults

Seated Exercises for Older Adults

As we age, physical activity helps us attain our goals, maintain our functioning and promote comfort. In addition, routine exercise can help reduce arthritis pain, improve mood, sleep and blood sugar control, as well as affect memory.

This video includes both balance and strengthening exercises, which can prevent falls and hip fractures. This video is appropriate for those older adults who cannot stand or who need support when standing.

    Hi. πŸ™‚ Please, let us pray together. Dear God who art in heaven hallow be thy name thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven, give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever in Jesus Christ’s name we pray amen. β€πŸ™ŒπŸ™

    I’m 20 and this was very helpful for me. My health is not what it used to be, and the exercises I used to do in youth strain my body too much. I’m starting slow.
    Thank you very much for posting, and thank you to the old gentleman demonstrating!
