Active at an advanced age
Don't just "sit around" in older age
Again and again, television commercials show us images of happy seniors playing sports with their family or friends, traveling, spending time in nature - in short, being active. Is the world portrayed in advertising a fiction designed to get older people to buy more medicines? Certainly, reality sometimes differs from the world depicted in advertising, but that does not mean that seniors' place is exclusively at home. Thanks to numerous aids, older people today have the opportunity to spend their time as they wish, regardless of their state of health. They just have to want to.
Don't lock yourself away in your own home
Retirement is finally here and you can do anything - sleep in after sleepless nights or in the weary hours of the morning, catch up on your reading, meet up with friends, travel - the possibilities are almost endless. There are so many options, and yet we often hear about the social exclusion of older people. Why? The stereotypical image of the elderly is that of ailing, friendless and lonely people who spend their time in front of the TV. Research shows that older people who are physically and socially active maintain their independence, recover better, and gain more self-confidence and self-esteem. Stimulating mental and social activities ensures appropriate psychosocial development of the elderly person. Community centers, libraries, cinemas, theaters, universities - there are more and more offers for seniors.
It is never too late to become physical active
Physical inactivity is a problem that affects almost all age groups, but it is particularly prevalent among older people. Aging is a natural process, but different disease identifiers can severely limit older people's ability to be physically active. A study of seniors from the Pommern (Germany) conducted between 2010 and 2013 shows a connection between physical activity and well-being, as well as subjective assessment of quality of life in the elderly. Physically active seniors consider themselves healthier and more satisfied with their lives, so the right kind of activity can be considered a recipe for a long life. Of course, this does not necessarily mean you have to start training for a marathon, but many other forms of physical activity are suitable even for seniors. Swimming, stretching, exercises for a healthy spine, Nordic walking and even regular walks help to feel better. But what to do if your health no longer allows you to take further trips or participate in sports activities? You should definitely not skip outdoor exercise! Aids and assistive devices for the elderly and people with reduced mobility allow them not only to function better, but also to be physically and socially active.
