Adapted Clothing for Fitness:  January a Time To Burn Off Excess Calories!

After a busy and hopefully enjoyable Christmas and New Year, it’s exercisetime to burn off the extra calories off!  Exercise is good for people of any age and can ease symptoms of many chronic conditions. And contrary to popular belief, weakness and poor balance are actually linked to inactivity, rather than age.

What types of exercise are possible with limited mobility?

Cardiovascular exercises that raise your heart rate and increase your endurance. These can include walking, running, cycling, dancing, tennis, swimming, water aerobics, or “aqua jogging”. Many people with mobility issues find exercising in water especially beneficial as it supports the body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint discomfort. Even if you’re confined to a chair or wheelchair, it’s still possible to perform cardiovascular exercise.

Strength training exercises involve using weights or other resistance to build muscle and bone mass, improve balance, and prevent falls. Flexibility exercises help enhance your range of motion, prevent injury, and reduce pain and stiffness. These may include stretching exercises and yoga.

Here at Adaptawear we have some discreetly adapted clothing to help when undertaking exercise.  These include tracksuit pants and swimwear for incontinence sufferers.

The different types of care and support you can get at home

There are various types of adult care that you can choose from. We have compiled this list Care choicesfor you to have a brief guide into what types of different care and support there is for you at home.

Home Care (Domiciliary Care)

For many people it is important to stay at home in their own, familiar surroundings near to friends and family. At the same time, remaining independent may also be very important to you but that can mean you need a little extra help. Some carefully chosen home care (sometimes known as domiciliary care) can often be the perfect solution to getting a little help whilst retaining a good level of personal freedom. Visit the care choices website to find homecare

Housing with Care

A Care Village, or retirement community, is a very broad, generic term that covers many varieties of housing for retirees and seniors – especially designed or geared for people who no longer work, or restricted to those over a certain age.

It differs from a retirement home which is a single building or small complex where no “common areas” for socializing exist. Many care villages provide people with independent accommodation and may include shared facilities, such as meeting rooms, a library or pool. It might also provide lifestyle services and social activities, such as organised outings, joint meals, craft, visiting doctors and allied health professionals.

Specialist Services

If you have a physical disability or a long-term illness, Adult Social Care and other organisations in the independent and not-for-profit sectors can provide a range of services to help you live as independently as possible. There are also services available to support someone who may be your carer. As with all support from Adult Social Care, your needs must firstly be assessed to determine the best ways to support you; your carer can also have an assessment. You may wish to discuss your needs with your family doctor in the first instance. If eligible, support from Adult Social Care includes: allocation of a Personal Budget; occupational therapists; help with equipment and adaptations to your home; activities within the community; help at home, and with leaving hospital; short breaks; help if required to move into residential or nursing home care; and help for carers.

Help at Home

Support is available to you to help at home with day-to-day personal care and domestic activities so that you can continue to live as independently as possible in your own home.

  • Help at home services and support might include:
  • Adaptations to your home – changes can be made to your home to help you do things more easily and safely. Small items such as grab rails can be provided free of charge
  • Help at home with domestic tasks such as housework, cooking, shopping and gardening
  • Elderly care services such as delivery of meals to your home

Dementia Care at home

Dementia Friends

People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia – from helping someone find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia and the explaining the different types of dementia care available.

Dementia Friends want to create a network of a million Dementia Friends across England. See http://www.dementiafriends.org.uk for further information.

Please visit Adaptawear.com if you need help with clothing which is specially adapted for the adapted dresselderly and disabled. We have a range of products for shirts, trousers and underwear to swimwear and clothing and dressing accessories.
