“Beat the Virus” Parts 1, 2 and 3
Home Program for Isolated Older Adults
Physical isolation can be devastating to older adults, especially those in assisted living, memory care or independent living communities due to extensive sitting. These are simple programs using no formal equipment to slow functional decline from isolation and should be done multiple times daily. Note that to reverse trends in falls and disease progression, more challenging standing exercise is necessary (e.g., using S3 and/or manual assistance).
We’ve also created downloadable PDF 1-sheets for each program (see below). It’s time to fight back against the virus!
