I am happy to assist you with your question about aquatic therapy.
As you may have noticed, in your search efforts, information about
specific aquatic exercises is very sparse. The reason being is, that
it is highly recommended that you consult your physician before
attempting any exercise program. Aquatic exercise may seem simple,
but the exercises can pose some safety problems for people with
severely limited endurance or range of motion issues. Therefore, your
program should be supervised by a qualified health professional.
With that said, I am listing links to several resources where you can
obtain information about aquatic therapy.

"Water Therapy Exercise Program" by Andrew J. Cole, MD, May 1, 2001
The Arthritis Foundation offers a low cost video called the Pool
Exercise Program (PEP). The video contains several exercise routines
that can be done with minimal impact.
One of my relatives suffers from many of the of the same problems that
you listed. She has puchased a product called the Flex-a-back and it
really seems to aid her in her water exercise program.
