Daily Living Made Easier

Very interesting news for the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents and their sweet seniors, either of whom may be dealing with early or advanced stages of Parkinson's Disease and its symptoms and I have the video to prove it. It turns out that it's not just bicycles or tricycles for senior adults that can help those dealing with a Parkinson's gait or the tremor that can accompany it. Dancing to music might be useful therapy as well. I know my senior dad would have loved giving this a try as he and my mom loved ballroom dancing. In fact, many senior citizens love the dancing they enjoyed in their youth and the familiar old music they still remember well.  Hopefully you and your senior parents will be able to give this a try. 🙂

 

Wasn't that fascinating! Music therapy has been useful with the elderly for years and combining it with dancing as part of Parkinson's therapy games definitely seems to have many benefits! This is very useful information for the baby boomer generation caring for elderly parents and great news for the seniors we love! If you or your senior parents have given this a try, we'd love to hear about it. 🙂

    What about for seniors that cannot walk anymore? Would that still work?
