Restoring Physical Confidence in an Older Adult
by: Ryan Halvorson
Client Success Story
Legally blind, Joan needed to improve her strength and balance to maintain her independence.
Introduction. Two years ago, Mary Ann DeMello sat in the kitchen of Joan, aged 85, discussing the possibility of training together. The two were introduced by Adelle, one of DeMello’s clients, who would often bring Joan home-cooked meals.
“Joan is very thin, and Adelle was trying to fatten her up!” says DeMello. “Adelle thought it would be a good idea for me to work with Joan, building her muscles and teaching her fall prevention exercises.”
