Why Maintaining Strength is Important for Older Adults
The Quarterly Purpose Subscription Box is sent to your loved one four times a year. Each box has a specific theme that will encourage your loved one to socialize and participate in activity as well as ease everyday tasks with functional, useful products. Themes include: Fine motor, Strengthening, Cognition, and Self-Care.
Spring Strengthening was the theme for May!
The Strengthening Boxes are intended to improve an individual's strength and endurance through meaningful and fun exercises that can be completed right in the comfort of their chair. Strength and endurance are important functions for older adults to maintain for the purposes of getting around, completing dressing tasks, and overall, to decrease their chances of injury.
The box included many functional and useful items including the WalBall. WalBall is the first ultra portable trigger point massage tool. All you have to do is simply stick the WalBall to any flat surfaces and work those troubled areas with ease. Common troubled areas include the neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, arms, glutes, hamstrings, calves, and feet.
The Hand Exerciser is an easy to use strength trainer, with its spring construction and ergonomic grip handles, it is designed to increase hand strength, tone forearms, fingers and hand muscles. It is important to strengthen your hands and fingers to stay independent with self-care tasks such as dressing and bathing.
The Theraband resistance bands are easy-to-use, convenient, portable, and are an effective alternative to free weights and weight machines. They are intended to increase strength, which will in turn improve functional living. They are available in 3 color-coded levels of progressive resistance within our box, Yellow, Red, and Green, allowing the user to progress as they get stronger and become more comfortable with the exercises.
A Theraband Home Exercise Program was included with the resistive bands to insure proper use of bands during exercise. Exercises such as shoulder flexion, elbow flexion, and chest pulls are common and easy exercises that strengthen the upper body, improve endurance, and decrease the risk of developing pneumonia in older adults.
It wouldn’t be spring without flowers. The Colorful Grow Kit contains everything someone would need to grow their own flowers in the comfort of their own home/room. The Grow Kit contains three Terracotta Pots, Three Seed Packets, Premium Grow Mix, Plant Labels, and Easy Growing instructions. It is a perfect and colorful addition to any room.
