Helping Seniors Stay Heart Healthy This Spring

Spring is in the air, which means your senior patients can get outside and move around. Not only is getting outside great for mental health but also for your patient’s heart health. Patients who can spend more time outdoors and walk around have increased chances of experiencing better heart health and a better quality of life as they age. Help your patients work towards strengthening their heart so they can enjoy the “golden years” of their lives.

Exercises to Boost Heart Health

Cardio exercises are going to help strengthen seniors hearts the best, but some seniors may be at a disadvantage due to lack of mobility or pain. Have you patients start slowly, with a variety of cardio exercises to help them select the right cardio regimens for their body and enjoyment. Some of these cardio exercises could include walking, biking, swimming, and even jogging. It’s important when helping your senior patient choose a cardio routine to keep in mind their safety and ability. Cardio works the heart and increases the need to breathe deeply, so take into consideration all points of your senior patient’s health when suggesting a cardio routine.

 

Senior Healthy Heart Habits

Habits can make or break a senior’s health. Making sure your patients are working towards developing healthy habits for their heart is important to keep them on the right track to heart health. A few habits they can start to implement or continue to maintain are to get at least 30 minutes of exercise per day, eat fresh fruit and veggies daily, watch their weight, minimize stress, quit smoking, and reduce alcohol intake. Eliminating unhealthy habits in a senior’s life will extend their health for a much longer period.
