Bring Your Seniors to Social Activities

As your loved ones get older, they may not have many opportunities to go out and socialize. It will also be harder for them to stay vigorous. So take them out as much as you can to help preserve their physical and mental health.

Risk Factors of Elderly Hip Fracture

Older people are at a high risk for injuries, which can lead to hip fractures. Some risk factors for a broken hip include:

• Osteoporosis - This causes bones to become brittle, making them more prone to fracture. In seniors, hip fractures can happen during simple weight-carrying activities.
• Gender - Women lose bone density faster than men due to a decrease in estrogen production after menopause.
• Heredity - Small-boned and slender-framed bodies have an increased risk of getting osteoporosis.

Keeping Seniors Engaged

When caring for an elderly loved one, you need to ensure they get enough stimuli to keep their brains active and bodies moving. To motivate them to participate in activities:

a. Play their favorite music
b. Inspire them to join community and group activities
c. Motivate them to participate in fitness programs, fitness classes, or senior day trips
d. If able, maybe they could get a pet.
e. If they want to make the least effort to lower stress, blood pressure, cholesterol, sugar level, improve mood, and enhance circulation, then let it be exercised.

How to Prevent Hip Fractures 

Prevent accidents in the first place. Seniors who have had injuries have a good chance of falling again. You can help by making your loved one’s home safe and ensuring that they stay as healthy as possible.

• Lighting should be just right and switches should be accessible.
• Rugs should be attached down.
• Bathrooms should have a bathing chair, skid-resistant mats, and grab bars
• Chairs need to be stable and have armrests.
• Frequently used items should be at the waist to eye level.

Problem-solving Skills

Identify the problem with an open mind. For example, you think the problem is that you are tired all the time, worrying that no one can give care as you can. However, the real problem is you think that you have to do everything yourself.

• List possible solutions. Select one solution then try it.
• Evaluate the results.
• If your first idea didn’t work, try the second solution.
• Ask friends, family, and professionals for suggestions.
• If nothing seems to help, the problem may not be solvable now.

Granny, Stay Away from the Sedentary Lifestyle

With all its physical challenges, the aging years should not be a reason to live a sedentary lifestyle. Not being very active can, in fact, be more harmful to your health than doing regular activities. Engage in physical exercises at least 30 minutes per day. Even a regular set of brisk-walking every day can already do wonders for your health.

If your aging loved one has mobility problems, what can you do to encourage them to engage in the active lifestyle? Type your insights at the comment section.
