Getting old is something that will happen to many of us. Yes, that includes you, dear reader. So I find it upsetting that many senior citizens don’t get as much care as they should. And that’s why I believe that services need to be more accessible to senior citizens, especially those who live in care homes.
For my business, I aim to give services to people who would benefit the most but are unable to access that service. And because my business is mobile I can break down those barriers and provide my services to anyone.
For a while now I have been working with care homes in Bristol:
Cossham Gardens – Leonard Cheshire Disability is a charity supporting disabled people in the UK and around the word to fulfil their potential and live the lives they choose. For 65 years , they been supporting disable people in many different ways,
and Begbrook House – Brighterkind - their Philosophy is that everyday is a new opportunity. To engage, encourage, and appreciate. To be there where it matters. Involved in all the little moments of kindness, that makes help life feel brighter….
They focus on understanding what quality of life means for everyone, and than provides the right experiences to help residents to live their life to fullest.
And from seeing how much my services have helped people, I feel it is important to share why senior citizens and those living in care homes could benefit from massage.
Who Can Benefit From a Massage?
Massage therapy can be a useful treatment for senior citizens. They are also suitable for those senior citizens who have impairments and conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, a stroke, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, joint and muscle stiffness, and limited mobility.
As a result of these impairments and conditions, senior citizens have poor blood circulation and limited physical activity. Many of them are also anxious, depressed, and lonely. Massage can help improve these issues, which makes it ideal for seniors.
