I see you are in Florida! Do you have access to a pool? Swimming is great exercise, and if your shoulders can't handle "freestyle" you can always flip on your back and do "elementary backstroke." If you don't want to swim, just walking in the Water is great exercise too, and takes the weight off of your joints.

Yoga (lots of videos to follow along with on YouTube), multiple short walks around the block, wall push ups, biking?

It's hard at this point as I have severe osteoarthritis in my knees, back and shoulders and have to use a walker.

I have many physical issues. Went to my doctor and got a script for PT. Explained my goals to the PT, that I wanted to learn some exercises that I could do safely on my own. It was a great help!! PT would know best what is helpful/harmful for osteoarthritis and can provide you with some very useful guidance.
