How do you help an elderly parent who is losing their mobility?
What are the most important physical and mental changes an adult child can do to help an elderly parent that is losing their mobility?
Try to help him feel like he has some mobility. A scooter chair to move around the home. One of those little hand graspers that reach a foot and a half. A chair for the shower. Etc.
Get them an exercise DVD just for seniors. CollageVideo.com offers tons of DVDs and there truly is something for everyone. Exercising will improve mobility and increase your parent's confidence.
