Healthy Aging | 12/6/19
Have you ever lost your footing or hit a particularly slippery section of the floor? The adrenaline may lead to some arm flailing, but often we are able to catch ourselves before causing serious injury.
As we age, though, it may become increasingly difficult to catch our balance. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one out of four older people falls each year.
Though our balance may decline as we age, there are exercises and activities that we can participate in to improve our strength and stability. Keep reading to find a few recommended balance exercises for seniors that may help you avoid a serious fall.
Although these are a few common balance exercises to begin with, always be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about concerns over loss of balance. They’ll have the best insight into your personal history and situation and will be better equipped to offer balance exercises suited to fit your needs.
At The Moorings at Lewes, our holistic wellness program LivWell allows you to focus on all seven dimensions of wellness. Since LivWell is personalized to your goals and interests, our team members work with you to incorporate activities that can help you achieve your goals.
