Care recipient (cr) doesn’t want or like to exercise

Try: Make exercising fun for the cr for example the cr could ride a stationary bike while watching a favorite television show or the cr could go for a walk each day with grandchildren if it is fun the cr is more likely to stick with it find a family member or close friend to offer to exercise along with the cr if exercising is also a social activity it may be more fun and interesting for the cr keep it simple for the cr for example a short walk every day or low impact dancing with a home video it is not necessary to join a health club or spend a lot of money start slow and then build from there encourage the cr to get moving even if it is for only a few minutes each day encourage the cr to try exercising for just a week and see if he or she feels better at the end of the week
