At my Catholic church, it was generally accepted that the old, pregnant, and sick were not bound to perform tasks that were too physically taxing for them. Bowing your head and closing your eyes is enough.

Tangentially related, this is also true for Russian Orthodox services. If you are incapable of standing up for the entire service for health reasons, there is a bench in the back.
