These strength training exercises for seniors can be performed sitting or standing.To do calf stretches while standing, find a wall with nothing on it. Stand facing the wall with your hands at eye level. Place your left leg behind your right leg. Keep your left heel on the floor and bend your right knee. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat two to four times per leg. If you want to stretch your calves while sitting, you’ll need a towel. Sit on the floor with your legs straight. Put the towel around the soles of your right foot and hold both ends. Pull the towel towards you while keeping your knee straight and hold it for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat the exercise two to four times per leg.

Marching is a great balance exercise for seniors. If you need to hold onto something, do this exercise in front of a counter. Standing straight, lift your right knee as high as you can. Lower it,

This balance exercise for seniors can be performed while seated. You’ll need a cane or some kind of stick. A broomstick works well for this – just remove the broom’s head before you start.Hold the bottom of the stick so that it’s flat on the palm of your hand. The goal of this exercise is to keep the stick upright for as long as possible. Change hands so that you work on your balance skills on both sides of your body.

You might read this and wonder, “How is walking an exercise to improve balance?” This exercise makes your legs stronger, which enables you to walk without falling. Put your right foot in front of your left foot so that the heel of your right foot touches the top of the toes of your left foot. Move your left foot in front of your right, putting your weight on your heel. Then, shift your weight to your toes. Repeat the step with your left foot. Walk this way for 20 steps.

It’s best to start off with a simple balance exercise for seniors. Here’s how you do this one: stand behind a steady, solid chair (not one with wheels), and hold on to the back of it. Lift up your right foot and balance on your left foot. Hold that position for as long as you can, then switch feet.

Bruce, kidney recipient

Bruce, chief diversity officer and senior officer at a private college in Minnesota, has always had a great love of life. In his early 20s, that great love also included food and Bruce gained a significant amount of weight as a result. By the time he reached the age of 40, Bruce weighed 400 pounds. Ready to turn things around, Bruce took steps to embrace a healthier lifestyle and lost almost 200 pounds. Unfortunately, Bruce’s change for the better did not come soon enough.

Between his big family and the many groups he belonged to, Bruce was sure that someone would quickly step up to be the living kidney donor that he needed. He was surprised when it did not go quite the way he had planned. In talking to people in the African American community, he found that a lack of information about organ donation was creating fear about the topic. Aware that health issues affecting organ function often disproportionately impact people of color, Bruce felt compelled to start promoting education about donation for the sake of all those who might need an organ transplant some day. “Like a lot of people, I thought that African Americans could only donate to African Americans and that your ultimate match could only come from someone who looks like you and has the same ethnic cultural heritage that you do,” says Bruce.

While clinical research has shown that successful transplantation often is enhanced by the matching of organs between members of the same ethnic and racial group, this wasn’t the case for Bruce. “It turns out that my match was an older white man from South Dakota, and he very generously donated one of his kidneys and saved my life.” It has been eight years since Bruce received the kidney that restored his health and enabled him to resume normal living. He is grateful for his donor’s gift every day, and he continues to spread the word about donation within his community. @donatelife

Peyton, heart recipient

Peyton was a healthy, vibrant three-year-old until a cold virus attacked her heart. The damage from the virus was so severe that a heart transplant was needed for her to survive.

Peyton was hospitalized for months while a machine kept her heart pumping until a matching heart was donated. Further complicating matters, Peyton suffered two massive strokes because of the blood thinners she was required to take. She lost all mobile abilities, and the doctors gave her parents the devastating news that they did not think that Peyton would make it.

With a lot of prayers and therapy, Peyton started showing signs of brain recovery and was doing more than the doctors expected. Peyton’s miraculous improvement meant that she was still a candidate for a heart transplant. After five months of waiting, she received a donor heart from a seven-year-old girl. “We were thankful to God that Peyton received the heart,” says her mother, Ashlyn, “but we were grieving for the parents who lost their child. It was so hard to be excited. We were almost in their position, but because of their generosity to donate their child’s organs, Peyton was given another opportunity at life.” Her new heart meant that Peyton was able to receive the intense therapy that she needed. Today, she continues to make great strides in her recovery and is regaining the abilities that she had lost because of her strokes. Peyton is walking, talking, jumping, climbing, dancing, smiling and feeding herself. She is a happy child again. “Not only did our donor give Peyton a heart, but her kidneys and liver also went to other individuals in need,” Ashlyn says. “She saved multiple lives through organ donation. We love our donor angel and her beautiful family.” @donatelife

Flip & Darla, donor and donor mom

Darla’s son Flip was always the life of the party. His heart was genuine, and he could find good in everyone. Growing up, Flip would often bring home stray animals as well as friends that were having a rough time. He loved to travel the world; and his favorite place was Costa Rica, where he could surf and relax. Having served in the Army and then working for a company that moved him frequently, Flip had a knack for making new friends everywhere he went.

In 1991, a guest speaker was invited to Darla’s Rotary Club to discuss the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. After sharing the speaker’s story with Flip, they both decided to register as donors.

Flip’s desire to be a donor was realized when he passed away twenty years later. “In our darkest hour, it was hard to make decisions. Our family found great comfort in knowing our son’s decision and that he made a difference in the lives of others,” Darla said.

Flip’s selfless gift of tissue donation benefited at least twenty people, giving them the opportunity to lead more productive lives after transplantation. One female recipient was given the gift of sight. “Knowing that Flip loved to travel and see the world, it brought us a sense of peace that she would experience life through his eyes.” @donatelife

Daniel, cornea recipient

Daniel has always been very active, starting back in high school on the basketball team. It was during his freshman year when he was diagnosed with a corneal disease called Keratoconous. However, he was able to function with regular soft contact lenses, and his vision was good enough to excel on the court and in the classroom.

After graduating from high school, and later college, the disease began to take a toll on Daniel’s eyesight. The disease had deformed his right cornea to the point where he was legally blind in his right eye. He became depressed and neglected his health. Then, one day in the middle of a work presentation, his right cornea ruptured, and his eye swelled to the point where the blue color of his iris was no longer visible.

Three months later, he received the life-changing gift of a corneal transplant. “Not a day goes by where I do not thank my donor and her family for that gift.” After Daniel’s transplant, he began running, swimming and cycling. He lost over 60 pounds. He has competed in two Ironman competitions and three marathons. His partner, who helped him every day during the traumatic experience with soothing eye drops and medication, became his wife. Together they have three beautiful children. “The gift of sight has motivated me to become the best I am capable of becoming in every aspect of life, and for that gift I will be forever grateful.” @donatelife

Susana, living donor

Susana is a wife, mother of a son, proud owner of two adopted dogs and, recently, non-directed kidney donor.

Susana's father had been diagnosed with end-stage renal disease in 2011 and began dialysis. Susana decided that she wanted to undergo tests to be her donor. Unfortunately, his father's health deteriorated further and transplantation was no longer a viable option. He died in 2013. The experience motivated Susana to learn more about the lack of available organs. "I asked myself what I could do to make a difference," says Susana. "If I was willing to live with a kidney when I wanted to donate to my dad, what difference would it make to live with a kidney now?" Four years later, Susana made the decision to donate a kidney and began working with the local transplant center to take the necessary measures. On her 44th birthday, Susana underwent surgery. Everything happened as planned. Susana was already wandering the other day and returned to work full time four weeks later. "Donation has enriched my life in a way that is very difficult to describe," says Susana. Invite others to sign up to be organ and tissue donors and to also consider themselves to be living donors. "Do not just think about how you could help someone who expects an organ but also in their families," says Susana. "A kidney will not change the world, but it will change someone's world." @donatelife

Being A Caregiver To Immobile Family Members.
Often, in our country, you will find that it falls on family members to take care of those confined to the bed, mostly the elderly, and at times even the young, due to injury or illness. Full-time care is a challenge, and till recently, there was no choice. It was also seen as a task that should not offer as though it diminishes the love and concern. Family members take on the caregiver role, out of love and commitment to the relationship.
However, nowadays, you do have the options of trained attendants, home nurses and caregivers to choose from. Taking care of a bedridden family member can be extremely difficult. It involves a considerable amount of patience, understanding, and at times, physical as well as an emotional strength too.

Sabrina, living kidney donor

Sabrina and her family have always been close-knit. As part of the Navajo tribe, she was also raised to respect and value her culture.

About 15 years ago, Sabrina’s father became ill with kidney failure. He was put on dialysis; but over the months, it was wearing on his body, and his condition continued to worsen. A new kidney was his only hope. As someone who would do anything for her family, Sabrina immediately went to get tested when the possibility of being a living donor was mentioned. She was a match, and they proceeded with the surgery. “I don’t think what I did was so special,” says Sabrina. “I just wanted to live life with my dad.” The transplant was a success. Through Sabrina’s gift of life, her father was able to live more than a decade longer — years that he shared with both family and friends.

Sabrina’s family was able to witness hope in the midst of tragedy from another perspective as well. In 2010, her brother Shawn was in a fatal accident. Inspired by his sister’s donation, Shawn had registered to become an organ, eye and tissue donor.

Because of these experiences, Sabrina and her family continue to promote organ, eye and tissue donation, especially within the Native American community. “My kidney donation and my father’s transplant have brought me to realize how precious and beautiful it is to be alive,” acknowledges Sabrina. With her family’s support and guidance, Sabrina is now studying to become a pharmacy technician so that she can continue to help others. @donatelife

Theresa, tissue recipient

Theresa is an active mother of two, grandmother of three and junior high school secretary who was enjoying life until she was involved in a serious car accident in November 2004.

Theresa broke her back and neck in the collision, and slivers of bone were pressing into her spinal cord. Her extensive injuries required two complicated surgeries within 24 hours, and doctors used bone from a tissue donor to encourage new bone growth in Theresa’s neck.

Thankfully, the operations were successful. After 10 days in the hospital, then wearing a neck brace for a month and a back brace for three months, Theresa has made a full recovery. Today, Theresa is healthy and doing what she loves — quilting, reading and enjoying time outdoors. She calls the day that she received her bone transplant her “second birthday” and likes to celebrate by bringing treats into work to share with her colleagues.

A registered organ, eye and tissue donor prior to the car accident, Theresa has become an advocate for donation since receiving the transplant that enabled her to heal. “I believe organ, eye and tissue donation is the greatest gift a person can give to another,” says Theresa. “Don’t put off registering. It is easy to do, and you might save a life.” @donatelife

Makenzie, tissue recipient

Working out and staying healthy have always been two of Makenzie’s passions. A natural athlete, Makenzie made both the field hockey and softball teams her freshman year of high school. When she was not playing organized sports, Makenzie was active in other ways: running, hiking, swimming, participating in school clubs, hanging out with friends and spending quality time with her parents and older brother. She never imagined a life without sports, but everything was about to change.

Makenzie was 14 years old and just finishing her first 5k race when she hyperextended her knee. Because the initial soreness she experienced did not seem to indicate a serious injury, Makenzie continued to play sports and work out regularly over the next few months. She soon found, however, that a terrible pain developed that was constantly there whenever she was moving — on or off the playing field. Her doctor performed exploratory surgery during her sophomore year with shocking results: Makenzie’s ACL was 98% torn. Because of a donor’s gift, her doctor was able to immediately perform a tissue transplant to help Makenzie begin her return to fully participating in life again.

Donor tissue made it possible for Makenzie to resume the healthy lifestyle that she loves and to continue to excel in sports. Not only did Makenzie play field hockey again, she also achieved her big dream of becoming team captain. Makenzie treasures her donor’s gift as the greatest she has ever received. Without it, she knows that her life would never have been same, and she strives each day to honor the person who gave her the opportunity to live her life to the fullest. @donatelife

Happy Sunday #Caregivers, I hope that you doing well. This is an blog post I typed up and never had a chance to post. I hope that you find it helpful. Please share.
During this time of year, it’s also a great idea to look at your parents living situation. Your aging parents will need to have their home cleaned as well, but they may not be physically capable of doing everything they used to do. You can tell that your loved ones are struggling because the house just doesn’t look as tidy as it used to when you came to visit in the past.

Rabbi Ilan Glazer, son of liver recipient

Rabbi Ilan Glazer had to grow up fast. As a child, he learned to clean, cook, take care of the house and help with younger siblings because his mother had numerous health issues.

At the age of 27, Rabbi Glazer’s mother Donna became jaundiced after giving birth to his older brother. She was diagnosed with several liver diseases. Even though the specialists warned she would not live to age 30, she was determined to prove them wrong. She went on to have three more children, living her life as an educator and rabbi’s wife. Rabbi Glazer remembers his mother as passionate about life and only having two speeds – fast forward and reverse.

In 2003, Donna’s liver diseases forced her to need a transplant. Her children and mother had offered constant support over the years, and their encouragement during this latest crisis stayed strong. In addition, the Jewish community rallied together to raise the funds Donna needed for her transplant by giving tzedakah, money designated for acts of justice, righteousness, and repairing the world.

When Donna’s transplanted liver regrettably failed, she waited at death’s door for a second liver, living in a friend’s house in a city far from home with her son Ilan at her side. After eight months, she finally received her second gift of life. She was incredibly grateful to her donors for giving her four extra years to spend with her family. Sadly, she succumbed to her many illnesses in 2007. “As a rabbi, I can think of no higher mitzvah, or commandment, than giving someone else the gift of life,” says Rabbi Glazer. “I’ve already told my loved ones that when the time comes for me to take my last breath, I would be more than ready to give whatever of me can be used to help someone else. It would be an honor to give someone else a new lease on life. I hope you’ll join me in doing the same.” @donatelife

Jim, living kidney donor

Jim’s story starts over 30 years ago, when he began working as a nurse at a Franciscan sponsored healthcare system in Pennsylvania. Jim first met Matt in the halls of this hospital. They were both just starting their careers, and bonded over being some of the only men (and class clowns) in their female-dominated profession.

Over their years of friendship, Jim watched as Matt battled numerous health-related issues. Matt always remained positive, never complaining or losing hope. Last summer, though, Matt’s kidneys were failing, and doctors told him that he would need a transplant in order to survive.

Jim admits that he originally offered to donate his kidney half jokingly. However, when all six of Matt’s siblings were not matches, suddenly Jim’s offer became more serious. After discussing his decision with his family, Jim underwent the necessary tests. Remarkably, Jim was found to be a match for Matt, and the surgery was scheduled.

Prior to his donation, while on a trip to Assisi, Italy, Jim was inspired to buy two Pope Francis pectoral crosses for both he and Matt to wear. “I wanted him to know that, just like the parable depicted on the cross, the Good Shepherd will be with us and carry us on His shoulders when we can’t walk.” Jim’s gift of a kidney not only gave life back to his friend and coworker, but also made it possible for Matt to enjoy more time as a husband, father and grandfather. Like many people, Jim never considered living donation until he had a friend in need. But once the situation presented itself, Jim “couldn’t wait to be a part of this miraculous process!” @donatelife

Imran, tissue recipient

Life was a charm for Imran. His two children brought him hope and joy, and he had a passion for his career in information technology. And as practicing Muslim, he was taught to believe in Allah and be charitable to others.

About four years ago, though, Imran’s life changed forever. More than 90 percent of his body suffered third degree burns in a house fire. Imran was placed in a coma for two months and endured over fifty-six surgeries. Due to the extent and intensity of his excruciating burns, donated tissue was used to save his life and heal his wounds.

After six months in the hospital, Imran was released to begin his long road to recovery at home. He likened himself to a newborn, having to adjust to his new life and relearn many basic functions.

Through his faith and determination, Imran was eventually able to regain physical and mental stability. “It is Allah who has given me a new life,” says Imran, “It is He who has provided for my survival through the charity of a person who gave me what I needed.” With recovery came a drive to help others recovering from severe trauma, an activity he deems his biggest achievement.

Imran is forever thankful to his donors for giving him a renewed life and mission. “Our donors are the Magi, God’s angels,” he says, “arriving at our bedside with their selfless, lifesaving gifts. They are the ultimate lifesavers, the angels of giving.” @donatelifeamerica

My son babysitting his 94 year old great grandmother who passed after having suffered a series of strokes a few years ago. My once powerful grandmother could no longer walk, feed herself or transfer. We had to lift her - a lot! My son noticed I was able to do it without hurting myself for long periods of time whereas he hurt his back. I told him he needs to practice deadlifting. I don’t think he was really listening to me before because I’m his mom. After this real life experience he started dead lifting again which made me very happy. I think it’s the most important and underutilized exercise..If we couldn’t lift her she wouldn’t have been able to pass away at home. I taught everyone how to lift and transfer properly. I was able to give this last gift to my grandmother❤️. Thank you to the powerlifting gym where I learned to deadlift @mgoff.4stargym. #deadlifting #functionaltrainer #functionalpilates #fitforlife #chiropractic #westlosangeles #powerliftinggym #personaltrainer #grandmother #greatgrandmother #stroke #eldercareadvice #caregiver #nursinghome #hospice #grandson #greatgrandson #family #fitforlife #acefitness #obaachan #granddaughter #love
