Nice Weather Means More Exercising!
As the weather starts getting nicer, think about exercising more! Physical exercise for seniors is very important as it lowers the risk of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, colon cancer, and obesity in older adults. Exercise also helps with balance, posture, and strength. The following YouTube videos are to help with specific issues you or your loved one may have. Before starting these exercises, please be sure you don’t do these alone. Make sure there is someone there to supervise in case anything were to happen.

Even if these exercises seem like they are too much, think about going for short walks while the weather is nice.
