FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY PROGRAM

#REALISATION

Are your parents or grandparents having an overtly *sedentary routine?

 

 

(That means, they are not being as active as they should be.)

Would you like to help them adopt a more active lifestyle, but you don’t know how?

First, some #FACTS…

Muscle degenerates at a rate up to 40% decrease by 80 years old.

 

Muscle loss leads to weakness.

 

[Study]

Physical health affects mental health.

 

Then, it’s a self serving vicious cycle to health and functional decline.

 

[Study]

Weakness heightens the risk of falls, which can result in serious injuries.

This is preventable.

[Study 1, Study 2]

One of the most effective ways to combat the loss of muscle mass is by stimulating hypertrophy and increasing muscle strength by incorporating strength training. [Study]

6 months of strength training 3 times per week, maximum lean body mass increased by 1.0 ± 0.5 kg in seniors.

 

[Study]

Three months of supervised strength training caused an increase in fat-free mass in the thigh muscle and the whole body in seniors. [Study]

STEP 1

A MINDSET CHANGE
A mindset change is needed, firstly. 

 Everyone needs to have things to do, to give our lives meaning. 

A common mistake by caregivers and family members is to take away activities from our seniors because we think they should do less when they get on with the years.

Having the independence and access to activities that are meaningful to one's life contributes to a higher quality of living. #truth

You live to do the things you love, don't you?

STEP 2

ASK FOR THEIR PERMISSION
Get their permission.

Have a chat with them that you are arranging for a professional to do a check up on their health.

Once they approve, send us their info and we will arrange for a call to speak with them to gather info about their profile and tell them more about the importance of futureproofing one's health.

This is also when we gather info to get a snapshot of their profile.

STEP 3

GET THEIR COMMITMENT
By letting them fully understand the mission, we get their commitment be more active.

We do this by building trust.

Schedule in the first session for our exercise therapist for a try-out session.

STEP 4

START FUTUREPROOFING
Regular sessions can be booked to keep them engaged weekly.

Our program ensures activities are tailored to the individual's abilities and goals to encourage them with attainable successes and move up at their pace.

FINALLY,

#WINNING.
Mission accomplished!

Look out for the progress report weekly on how they are progressing with more activity and them smashing goals.
