• Safe Standing Exercises for Older Adults



    Cressida Lewis, PT, MSPT, leads a series of standing exercises using a chair that can be safely done at home by older adults on their own, or with the help of caregivers. Make sure to use a sturdy chair that will not move or a kitchen countertop for safety while doing these exercises.
