Walking: The Fitness Hack That All Ages Can Enjoy


Walking is the best exercise there is. It doesn’t require any equipment: just your legs and a determination to get to where you want to go. It may seem tiresome for some of us, especially with the boom of public transportation and private vehicles. However, we need to understand that walking is a very beneficial activity, more so for aging adults.

In this blog, our home care services will talk about the importance of walking and why we should include this easy activity in our lives.

  • Walking can be done anywhere, anytime.

    Make it a point to walk for at least 30 minutes every day. Brisk walking for 30 minutes to an hour in nature is a great way to stimulate your senses and keep your brain active.

  • A way to battle unwanted illnesses.

    The faster you walk, the stronger your heart beats. This easy form of cardio can help prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and type 2 diabetes.

  • Also beneficial for pets.

    If your senior has a beloved pet, like a dog, take them for walks with you. Animals also need that exercise to upkeep their overall happiness. As a home care service provider in Hawaii, we also offer pet walking services as a way to keep you and your pet strong and well.

Helping Hands Hale is here to ensure that your aging kapunas safely manage and enjoy their life while maintaining their independence. For more information, call 808- 747-Care (2273).

About Us


Our office is based in Volcano, Hawaii but Helping Hands Hale proudly serves clients on all of Big Island.

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.
