How Do You Pass Time in Old Age?

  Old Age Pass Time

As we age, our mobility may become more limited due to illnesses or/and injuries. Injuries and health concerns may make the usual activities and hobbies difficult or impossible. However, limited mobility still doesn’t mean that you have to withdraw from social activities.

Here are some ideas on how to pass the time in old age.

Join a senior fitness center.

Even with limited mobility, you should consider trying out a fitness center for the elderly. Exercise can increase your mood, help maintain good physical health, and relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. Consider different upper-body exercises such as yoga or seated exercises or exercises focused on ankles and feet to reduce swelling.

Exercise is also an excellent opportunity to meet other seniors and socialize.

Check out new technology.

Don’t shy away from digital technologies. Tablets, smartphones, and computers are a perfect way to stay connected with family and friends while you simultaneously learn new things and keep your mind stimulated and engaged.

Practice mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness exercise has the power to boost resilience, reduce the levels of stress, increase optimism, and improve your self-esteem. Also, mindfulness meditation can help you recognize stress-related somatic symptoms such as aches and pains and negative thoughts that cause anxiety and depression. Studies also show that focusing on breathing and calming the mind and body can help you feel more relaxed.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
