Easy to do Chair Exercises for Seniors

Easy to do Chair Exercises for Seniors

It is never too late to start exercising. But as one gets older and the body begins to weaken, it is not advisable to try the exercises that could have a negative impact on the health. Here are some easy exercises seniors can perform by sitting comfortably on a chair. These exercises improve blood circulation.

Ankle and Wrist Rolls

  • Sit on a chair with a straight back.
  • Flex fingers, opening and closing the fists several times while rotating the wrists slowly, 10 times in each direction.
  • Repeat the same with each foot curling the toes while rotating the feet at the ankles

Seated Hip Marches

  • This exercise helps in improving the hip movement. Sit straight on a sturdy chair and place the feet flat on the floor at hip-distance apart from each other.
  • Grab the armrests with both hands. Lift the right leg with the knee bent as high as it is comfortable.
  • Lower the right foot slowly to the floor.
  • Repeat with the left foot. It is important to not go overboard with the exercises.

Torso Twist

  • Sit straight with the feet on the floor, at a hip-apart distance.
  • Place hands lightly behind the head, elbows bent, pointing towards the sides of the room.
  • Keep the pelvis steady. Exhale and twist the torso slowly to the right only as far as it is comfortable.
  • Inhale and return to the previous straight position.
  • Repeat the same and turn towards the left side. Repeat the exercise 5-6 times and take a break. Try another set if it feels comfortable.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

I have been a client with YouCare for the past 2 years. Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.

We had hired a nanny from YouCare for our grandchild. My son was in town and needed help with his new born baby and elder child. Our caregiver was very loving, trained and a thorough professional. She took very good care of both the kids and ensured that the entire family was comfortable while she was around. We were very satisfied with Team YouCare and their services.
