Activities for Seniors with Visual and Hearing Issues

Recommended Fitness Activities for Visually Impaired and Deaf Seniors

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (1996) regular physical activity is beneficial to both a person’s physical and psychological health and reduces risk for heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and other stress-related illnesses. For older adults living in deaf wellness center in Brooklyn, New York, it may be challenging for them to meet the daily recommended amount of exercise and physical activity.

Luckily, Deaf Wellness and Recreation Center is here to provide visually impaired and deaf individuals with various services that will help them cope with their issues.

We offer adult day services in New York to assist patients to attend health classes and exercise training, while at the same time, keeping them safe by monitoring their physical and emotional conditions. Take note: the instructor should be able to demonstrate the movement and identify the exercise and muscle involved in a way the patient will understand. The instructor may ask participants to repeat some of the skills to ensure understanding and safe performance.

We also have social adult daycare in Brooklyn that allows patients some time for exploration, introducing them to different people with similar complications.
