We all know it's true: Use it or Lose it
We have seniors who need assistance in motivating them to do simple exercises that have been approved for them and arranged by the Volunteer Coordinator. It is as simple as sitting down with them to do their exercises along with them or keeping them on track with the practice. Some seniors are looking for a walking partner, either at a local mall or outside. We all do better when working with someone else who encourages us to keep moving.
Training is provided, and in-person training for you and your companion upon the first meeting allows you to appropriately learn and motivate when practicing the exercises. All exercises can be done in the home, standing or sitting.
Build new friendship by making a healthy impact on someone's life. Very flexible hours (weekdays or weekends) 2-4 hours a month. 12 week commitment minimum. This is a wonderful opportunity for students in medical fields to see exercise from the elder patient's perspective.
