We at ADA Extended Home Care know how challenging simple movement can be for bedridden or low- mobility clients. Exercising is an essential part of specialized Alzheimer’s care, post operative care, post stroke care in our company. We at ADA Extended Home Care take seriously the importance of exercise in older less mobile adults.
There are two types of exercises that we recommended at ADA Extended Home Care: Passive motion exercise and Active motion exercise. These exercises reduce stiffness and will prevent or at least slow down the stiffening of your joints as the aging progresses and you move less often.
Active range of motion are exercises you can do on your own. Passive range of motion exercises require a caregiver to do the work for you. Passive range of motion exercises reduce the development of pressure ulcers by increasing blood flow to the skin in a bedridden patient.
Our experienced and trained caregivers will help you with daily exercise in your home. If you are doing exercises with your loved ones, ADA Extended Home care recommends that you follow the tips below:
During exercising if a patient experiences any sudden pain, please contact your healthcare provider. There is a risk for sudden moving blood clot in bedridden patients who haven’t done the exercise previously and such a situation requires immediate medical attention.
Shoulder and elbow exercises:
Arm and wrist exercises:
Hand and finger exercises:
Hip and knee exercises:
Ankle and foot exercises:
For the toe exercises, allow the person’s foot to relax on the bed, and hold only the toes
