Are You Worried About Staying Socially Active with Reduced Mobility?

Cheerful senior women exercising their arms.

 

We host activities inclusive of all of our seniors!  At our Retirement Concepts communities across Canada, we are committed to providing a comfortable, fun and safe space that all of our residents are happy to call home. Seniors who are isolated are at risk of experiencing health issues, cognitive decline and depression. This is why staying socially active is an important aspect of ageing well. But what about the millions of seniors with mobility issues? While lacking the ability to get around on your own may seem like an obstacle, it certainly doesn’t have to be!

Types of mobility issues

 

Mobility problems can involve difficulty walking, trouble reaching for everyday things, and challenges with getting in and out of chairs and climbing stairs. These issues can be caused by many different things, from arthritis and osteoporosis to injuries and cognitive disorders. Mobility issues have also been linked with incontinence. We don’t believe that these challenges should hold you back from engaging in social activities or missing out on any of the fun in our communities! Our dedicated staff members are here to help you out along the way and there is always something new and engaging brewing on the horizon.

Activities for seniors with mobility issues

While some might worry that their mobility difficulties will stop them from being able to stay physically and socially active, this just isn’t true. At Retirement Concepts, we strive to make our activities as inclusive as possible. Here are just a few examples of what you can do, even if you have a hard time getting around or need more help than others.
