Helping Seniors Stay Strong: Caring of the Entire Senior-Mind, Body and Soul (5 of 5)

There are a number of things you can do to help your senior loved one fight off frailty and stay strong. The good news about aging is that keeping an older adult's mind, body and social life active can prevent or even reverse frailty and you, as a family caregiver, are in a unique position to help them figure out what activities will work best.

This chapter, Helping Seniors Stay Strong, covers each of these three categories with tips on how you can help.

    Hi everyone, I was just reading all of these comments from various caregivers and I must say God Bless You all and your efforts to be strong. I thought perhaps soft instrumental music might soothe some patients, and a gentle back rub. or walking a short distance when one is able does medically change brain waves and helps when anyone of us are distraught, the walking lubricates our glands and changes brain waves producing a calming effect after 30 minutes or more. I read this in a medical column some years back and it has worked. I am 75 and losing some of my daily memory - its saddening and scary. My daughters get annoyed that I don't remember at times. I keep praying and walking each day when I can to activate the brain cells (again I read in a medical column) and it helps. I will pray for all of you caregivers and patients to keep up your efforts and many thanks for sharing your difficulties, God Bless you all - each effort we make on another's behalf is like lighting a torch on a dark pathway. Remember Jesus fell three times but kept going for all of us - I often think of his supreme efforts on our behalf and tell myself if He can keep going, so can I. God Bless You all and I will pray for your continuous efforts and strength with God beside you.
