The Benefits of Incorporating Exercise and Elder Care
As our nation ages, the home healthcare industry takes on the burden of care for our elderly. Unfortunately, many healthcare professionals lack the basic knowledge of sound nutrition, ergonomics, movement and fitness programming for specific populations. These include cancer in the elderly, diabetes and even “brain fitness,” (memory and decision making) all of which benefit from movement and exercise. Our reimbursement PPT even details wellness reimbursement as part of the Case-Mix package for home care services. The @Home Wellness Series is the only program designed to serve the home care industry on the market.
The Wellness @Home Program includes the Healthy Mind, Body & Spirit DVD – a 24 minute training program that will guide seniors with little or no exercise experience to perform basic movements using a chair, balance points and stretches. It is a great introduction to the benefits of exercise.
