Greetings once again from your Gainesville-area assisted living and Gainesville memory care community here at Manor Lake. As we age, our joints lose fluid and our muscles lose elasticity, leading to a natural decrease in flexibility. Seniors who lose flexibility find it hard to complete normal daily tasks like getting up from chairs or walking up and down stairs, let alone more complicated chores like cooking and cleaning.
The CDC recommends that adults 65 and older get at least 150 minutes of moderate activity each week to help with strength and balance. More specifically, routine range of motion exercises can strengthen muscles and maintain flexibility. At Manor Lake Assisted Living and Memory Care, we work with residents to ensure they remain flexible to avoid issues with tight muscles and injuries.
