/COMUNICAE/

In the Matacàs residence it is clear that staying active and in form is essential to be able to enjoy good health at any age. Physical exercise promotes mobility and prevents diseases that are accelerated or caused by sedentary life. However, in older persons, physical activity is much more important, since it depends largely on its autonomy

The consequences of aging make older people increasingly dependent. It is clear that their mobility is reduced, slower and less agile. But they should not move at all, on the contrary, the objective should be that, despite their difficulties, they continue to carry out their day-to-day activities with total normality and to the extent possible. In the Matacàs de Sant Adrià del Besòs Residence they promote physical exercise almost daily to delay physical deterioration and thus maintain mobility within the limitations of each one. In the same way, the activities selected should address these limitations, in order to counteract the deterioration directly and effectively.

 

From Residencia Matacàs (as shown by WHO studies) it is recommended for adults of this age group that physical exercise should consist of recreational, leisure or displacement activities (walking or cycling), among others. And it marks a minimum to stay in shape: 150 minutes a week in the event that these activities are moderate, such as those of aerobic type, and 75 if they are intense or vigorous activities. In any case, the motivation of the geriatric resident should be encouraged and activities that not only suit them, but also interest them and like them.

With regard to the activities that are best suited to be carried out during the elderly, although there are multiple changes in organisms, these are particularly responsible for combating the deterioration of the skeletal and cardiovascular muscle system. It is therefore essential to undertake both aerobic, moderate and longer-lasting activities, those that seek to achieve greater resistance to physical effort, such as anaerobics, intense and short, that seek to strengthen muscle mass and improve autonomy, in addition to preventing osteoporosis. The most popular activities among older people are pilates and yoga. This type of activity is incorporated in the Matacàs Residence, given its clear benefits.

In the Matacàs Residence, they ensure that sports also reduces the risk of mortality among users of residential centers of the elderly, as it reduces the chances of heart disease, helps to maintain an adequate body weight, reduces the proportion of body fat, improves metabolic balance, decreases the risk of getting type 2 diabetes, helps to control cholesterol and strengthen the immune system.

In the case of persons with reduced mobility, it is indicated that the exercise should be focused on activities that allow them to improve their balance and coordination and thus prevent falls. On the other hand, people with certain health problems, such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, will have to take the necessary precautions and consult with their doctors what activities and how much they should practice. Residencia Matacàs adapts its activities programs depending on the needs of the residents.

The benefits of exercise are not only physical, but also mental and emotional, as it actively delays brain aging and makes them feel better about themselves. This way the stage of their lives is confronted with greater optimism and positivity thanks to the liberation of endorphins.

In addition, physical exercise is a perfect social tool to relate and find new friendships in a healthy and healthy environment. Another of the great advantages of physical exercise and keeping fit for people during the older age is the reduction of stress and insomnia. In Residencia Matacàs we have been able to check the improvement in the quality of life of the residents thanks to the exercise.

Finally, do not forget that physical exercise should always be accompanied by a healthy and balanced diet that provides the elderly with sufficient nutrients and energy. In the event of more intense activities, energy input should be greater. And, in any case, older people should maintain proper hydration before, during and after physical exercise, having to be greater than the average.

As recommended by WHO, all residents Matacàs, in Sant Adrià del Besòs, follow a program designed by expert professionals that adapts to their needs and limitations. After all, physical exercise is the main non-pharmacology strategy to be able to carry out an active and healthy aging. In fact, experts point out physical exercise as the main protector that older people have at their hands to fight age-related diseases.
