Improving mobility in the senior citizens Impaired mobility is a major health concern for senior citizens, affecting fifty percent of people over 85 and at least a quarter of those over 75. As adults lose the ability to walk, to climb stairs, and to rise from a chair, they become completely disabled. The problem cannot be ignored because people over 65 constitute the fastest growing segment of the population. Therapy designed to improve mobility in senior citizen patients is usually built around diagnosing and treating specific impairments, such as reduced strength or poor balance. It is appropriate to compare senior citizens seeking to improve their mobility to athletes seeking to improve their split times. People in both groups perform best when they measure their progress and work toward specific goals related to strength, aerobic capacity, and other physical qualities.

Someone attempting to improve a senior citizenís mobility must decide what impairments to focus on, and in many cases, there is little scientific evidence to justify any of the options. Today, many caregivers choose to focus on leg strength and balance. New research suggests that limb velocity and core strength may also be important factors in mobility.[5]

The family is one of the most important providers for the senior citizen. In fact, the majority of caregivers for the senior citizen are often members of their own family, most often a daughter or a granddaughter. Family and friends can provide a home (i.e. have senior citizen relatives live with them) help with money and meet social needs by visiting, taking them out on trips, etc. Declaring senior citizen Incompetence. In almost all cases of declaring senior citizen persons or a Senior Citizens mentally or physically incompetent to adequately take care of themselves, in some countries state laws require that a minimum of two doctors, or other health professionals, vouch for such incompetent behavior. Only then can legal supervision by a loved one or caretaker be initiated, including power of attorney, guardianship and conservatorship. If doctoral corroboration cannot be obtained by interested parties, then other proof must be proffered to support the case for incompetence, including outstanding bills and financial debt, or substandard living conditions that would be deemed unsafe or hazardous to the senior citizen person(s) or senior citizens.[6
