Strategies to Motivate Seniors to Exercise Regularly


We all know the importance of engaging in regular exercise, especially for older adults. Regular physical activity is an effective way for seniors to gain substantial health benefits while maintaining their independence. However, exercise can be a challenge for many seniors. To remedy this, here are tips to motivate seniors to exercise regularly:

  • Find ways to make exercise fun.

    Not all seniors enjoy going to the gym or participating in fitness groups. Caregivers can find ways to make exercise more fun and engage at home. Physical hobbies like birdwatching and gardening can be a form of exercise. Seniors can also try a variety of new activities to keep their interest in exercise alive.

  • Fit exercise into your day.

    Seniors are more likely to engage in exercise if it’s a convenient part of their day. Daily tasks like tidying up their living space or walking the dog can be a good way to stay active. With home care services, seniors can receive help with more strenuous tasks.

  • Make exercise a social activity.

    Having an exercise buddy can keep older adults motivated and inspired. A healthcare service provider in Hawaii can offer words of encouragement and help older adults keep track of their fitness goals. Seniors can also exercise with neighbors or join a fitness class to meet new people and expand their social circle.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
