Senior Mobility – Important Reminders to Stay Safe
Experiencing problems with your own senior mobility? You’re not alone. The United States Census Bureau reports that of the almost 16 million seniors who have a disability, a whopping two thirds of them report theirs is specifically linked to issues with mobility – either walking or climbing. Senior mobility is a big issue.
As you age, difficulties with mobility may present themselves in a variety of ways including:
- Fatigue and lack of endurance when walking
- Frequent falls
- Trouble standing for more than 10 minutes at a time
- Pain or discomfort when walking or climbing stairs
- Problems with balance and coordination
