Staying Motivated to Exercise with Companion Care

If exercising was not your part of your lifestyle prior to the diagnosis, it’s never too late to begin a routine or program.  Bring a live-in caregiver with you to the doctor’s before you partake in vigorous activities.  In addition to increased energy levels, you’ll also experience the following benefits of exercise:

  • Decreased level of cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Better weight management
  • Improved muscle strength
  • Better sleep

Doctors usually recommend that you exercise in 30-minute increments or less, depending on your strength and energy levels.  If you start feeling chest pain, dizzy, or other symptoms that make it difficult to exercise, you should stop right away and not over-exert your body.

During the times when you feel too exhausted to do anything, you can rely on a helpful 24-hour caregiver to assist you with meal preparations, light housekeeping, errands and transportation anywhere in Corona del Mar and beyond.  Round-the-clock caregivers are especially instrumental when you need help going to the doctor’s and it’s too unsafe for you to drive on your own.
