Throughout covid-19, the whole world decided to shut down and stopped because we needed to save the elderly people and make sure there ok.

While we did do that, did we ever look at how the elderly people are reacting and feeling about the situatuion that is presented to them? Elderly people overall, have been at a state of depression, not being healthy, not being able to go outside. For the most part, a lot of these elderly people that are stuck in the retirement homes, are forced to just sit there and not do much.

What are the benefits of working out and being active?

(Jacobs, et.al, 2008) stated that a study of people that are 70 that worked out, had fewer complaints at the age of 77 about sleep problem, pain problems and others. Compared to the people that did not work out (Jacobs ,Et.al, 2008). The important aspects of elder people working out could potentially improved your cognitive performances and mood setting (Brown, et.al, 2009). This is important, considering that this study was based in a retirement home, making it useful for an overall effective reaction (Brown, et.al, 2009). Lastly for elderly people, there are different types of workouts that elderly people to do that could really help them out (Barrett, Smerdely, 2014). Barrett, Smerdely, (2014) stated the study shows that, the different types of workouts could and does end up making elderly people live a year longer, based on longterm chart.

So, what is the solution you may ask? there is this North York day program that is designed to help elderly people get there "Essential daily workout" and fighting depression. The reason why this is very important is considering the fact that being healthier physically and mentally has provided to be useful. As well, this could be the best thing for the elderly people, since it could make them more productive and make them not feeling so bad about what is going on.

 

Why am i making this petition? By making this petition, it could potentially help elderly lives a lot better.
