Making the Bones Strong for Seniors

Making the Bones Strong for Seniors

While the bones tend to wear as we grow older, there are ways to keep it in shape. Unhealthy bones may lead to different conditions. Whatever the issue, we provide Home Health & Hospice in Kansas for your needs.

Strong bones make better movements. This leads to a better quality of life everyone longs for. Start by keeping it active. Inactive bones and muscles lose strength and therefore increases the risk of falls, osteoporosis, and fractures. Doing something is always better than nothing. Simple and less complicated exercises are a good way to start. Moderate activities can be introduced later when seniors have the strength or are more confident in doing such tasks. You can also consult with your doctor for appropriate exercises.

Eating for healthy bones must consider the nutrients that build up the bones and muscles. A healthy balanced diet and taking in supplements can be a good combination. Calcium makes the bones including the teeth strong. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. Protein is essential for muscle strength.
