Down With the Downward Dog: Senior Home Care Experts Share the Benefits of Yoga, Manhattan, New York

September is National Yoga Month, and now is a great time to learn about the benefits of this gentle therapy. The senior home care staff at ACCESS Nursing Services encourages capable patients to embrace holistic methods like yoga for its healing and nurturing properties. With locations in Maryland, New Jersey, and New York, the company provides an array of comprehensive health care services, including home health care and pediatric care.

Patients of any age can benefit from yoga. It relaxes the muscles, improves flexibility, and even restores energy. Since yoga keeps muscles limber, it can also help reduce the symptoms of arthritis, osteoporosis, and carpal tunnel syndrome — all conditions that may affect people as they grow older.

Stress in the elderly is not uncommon, and it can present depressive symptoms, irritability, memory loss, body aches and pains, and even dietary changes like the loss of appetite or eating more than usual. As much a spiritual and mental practice as it is physical, yoga is especially effective for older individuals who require stress relief in their lives. And because it’s gentle, it can have a strong impact without putting added stress on delicate, aging bodies.

Whether the individual is receiving home health care or elderly care in a facility, they might find comfort in practicing yoga regularly. Not only can it ease unpleasant body aches, but it may also improve memory by keeping both the mind and body synchronized and engaged. This kind of focus sharpens cognitive function and relaxes the body.
