Caregiver Fitness

Do you take care of a family member or another person who has limited mobility but who might benefit from some basic exercise? Would you like to learn how to help them improve and maintain their movement and flexibility while helping yourself to stay healthier too?

I can help.

For more nearly 9 years, I have helped to care for my elderly parents. First, my mother, who passed away in 2011 after a long bout with Alzheimer’s disease. The last two years required full-time care, performed by my family. Now, I care for my father who suffers from Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. His body has become stiff over the years as the disease progresses, losing muscle mass, strength, and flexibility.

For more than a year now, I’ve been doing what I was told couldn’t be done – improving his stability, strength, and flexibility by combining some basic resistance exercises with his physical therapy movements.
