It’s important for people of all ages to incorporate regular exercise into their daily routine. This is doubly important for aging seniors!
But how do you do that when your aging loved one has arthritis or severe mobility issues? Let’s start with some fun and effective low-impact exercises!
Believe it or not, even walking is a form of exercise. This basic way of getting around has low impact on the joints and is great for the body and the heart.
Even those who are out of shape or have some limited mobility can be encouraged to get into the habit of walking over time. Squeezing in just 10 minutes of walking a day can make the difference between a somewhat active lifestyle and sedentary one.
Walking isn’t an option for every senior! Luckily, there are plenty of options for seniors who are wheelchair bound or limited by arthritis or degenerative disease.
Upper body chair exercises work well even with a limited range of motion. Start slow with some simple neck stretches and shoulder circles to warm up.
Once warmed up, strengthen the arm muscles with light weights—or canned goods in a pinch—by performing a seated row. Just draw the elbows back and squeeze the shoulder blades together. Engage the trapezius muscles with some slow shoulder rolls between sets.
Seated abdominal twists make a perfect end to a seated workout, allowing seniors to stretch and cool down their arm muscles while strengthening their core!
Swimming itself is a fun and popular low-impact full body workout! And seniors with limited mobility can take pool time to the next level by mixing in some swimming exercises for variety!
Seniors can strengthen their swimming propulsion and stretch their legs using a kick board or the side of the pool. Try quick and vigorous kicks or slow leg swings.
If limited leg or hip mobility is a problem, try standing or treading water to do some arm exercises, such as arm circles, arm curls or chest flies. Water weights can be used for some added resistance!

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.Cindi E
It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.Samuel S
