How to Introduce Seniors to a Swim Spa
Many seniors remain as active as possible and participate in many different types of activities. Others tend not to be so active and this can be for several reasons. A swim spa can really be of a big help in several different ways for both active and inactive seniors.
Many seniors that have become inactive are sedentary because of poor health. Some have arthritis and other types of muscle or joint pain. Getting them involved in water activities using a swim spa can really help to reduce their discomfort since inactivity can make their condition worse.
The best way to start is to introduce them to the swim spa by assisting them into the spa, then allowing them to sit and enjoy the many benefits of the water. They will most likely respond well both physically and mentally to the warmth and movement of the water. Once the senior has become comfortable and is enjoying their time spent in the swim spa, introduce some gentle exercises.
The introduction to the swim spa may take some time before your senior is fully comfortable with it, but you should soon see some very positive results both physically and mentally. It won't be long before this individual begins to look forward to their swim spa sessions.
