of lower body function
Older adults often struggle with the toll aging takes on their bodies. As time passes, their muscles weaken, their bones lose density, and their joints break down, causing discomfort and pain as they perform daily tasks. Many older adults feel the impact of this most on their legs, hindering their ability to move around as they once did. While these barriers may prove troublesome to independent living, they can be overcome.
For many of us, mobility means freedom. A loved one experiencing loss of mobility may feel angry, fearful, or even depressed by the physical limitations they are experiencing. While you may not be able to take away their pain, you can help your loved ones better manage their discomfort and provide them with necessary relief so they can live happily and independently.
