With aging, the simplest of everyday activity may seem difficult due to the weakening of muscles, bones and other age-related complications. Conditions like Arthritis, osteoporosis, muscular atrophy, and similar diseases cause mobility limitations making it stressful to perform daily tasks like eating, gripping, bathing, personal grooming or using the toilet. Neurological disorders like Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Ataxia etc. may inhibit your motor functions thus interfering with normal movement. Other lifestyle disorders like Obesity, Diabetes, high blood pressure or incontinence can also hinder regular activity. Post stroke recovery or post surgical rehabilitation also impede seniors to address their daily living needs.
