As more and more baby boomers are reaching the magical age of 65, society is dealing with the dilemma of how to care for an aging population. Many seniors prefer to remain independent as long as possible. Maintaining good physical health is an important factor. Elder care programs at the Bloomington Rehabilitation Center are providing Insurance Approved services such as Physical Therapy and Strengthening Exercises to build strength, increase mobility, regain confidence and maintain greater independence. AdvaCare Clinics accepts most major health insurance plans.
Senior Isolation Problems
Feelings of loneliness and isolation contribute to senior health problems more than just across the state of Minnesota. Individuals who do not have family members close or do not participate in social activities are at greater risk for physical, emotional and neurological conditions. Remaining physically fit allows seniors to engage in more activities and decrease risk factors associated with isolation and loneliness.
The following list highlights Senior Health Concerns related to Senior Isolation:
- Increased risk of mortality
- Increased risk of dementia
- Increased risk of chronic health conditions like arthritis, and lung disease
- Increased risk of depression
- Increased risk of unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, poor diet and lack of physical activity
