As a home care company, we at Support For Home, as do most home care agencies, serve many clients with various forms of arthritis. Some cases are fairly mild and some are severe. They are all serious issues for our clients, inhibiting their ability to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental ADLs.
In the greater Sacramento Valley area, we are fortunate to have a strong presence of the Arthritis Foundation, with a good number of programs for folks living with arthritis.
One type of offering is the Arthritis Foundation Aquatic ProgramSM. The Foundation describes the program, as follows:
This program combines the buoyancy of water and the soothing warmth of a heated pool to make a safe, ideal environment for relieving arthritis pain and stiffness. Gentle movements used in the program increase joint flexibility and range of motion, while restoring or maintaining muscle strength.
A number of our home care clients participate in this program, with excellent results. This program is available at a number of locations, as shown in the following:
If you or a loved one in the greater Sacramento region suffers from arthritis, check out these aquatic opportunities.
Best wishes, Bert
