My friend runs a pool cleaning business and has family members work on certain clients which require more hands-on care. One of the things that the business requires a lot of physical flexibility. What this means is that family members are going to be bending, stooping, crawling and moving their bodies at odd angles in the course of the duties for the jobs. Older family members may risk getting injured, so my friend gave some suggestions on helping them increase flexibility to minimize that from happening.
There were several suggestions which are the more gentle versions of increasing flexibility including:
- Tai Chi
- general stretching
What other suggestions do you have for older family members to have fun ways to increase flexibility, thereby increasing the chances that they will make flexibility improvement a part of their lives? Thanks for your thoughts!
