Monthly Newsletters & Calendars
During the height of quarantine and the Governor's stay at home order, our Activities department developed creative ways for our residents to still have fun and stay connected while staying safe. Our travelling "Wine Down Wednesdays" and Farmer's Market quickly became resident favorites!
Staying socially connected and engaged is a crucial part of maintaining overall health and wellness. In difficult times, it’s important to be surrounded by a supportive community – and know you are not alone.
Wellness & Exercise
We partner with Symbria to provide a unique exercise and wellness program specifically designed for seniors. Also known as SeniorFITness™, the Well-Being program offers one-on-one fitness instruction, exercise classes and education sessions that enable seniors to stay fit, build strength and prolong their independence. This program is available to our residents at no extra cost. Working hand-in-hand with residents' own physicians, the Well-Bing team will design a personalized fitness program to meet the abilities of each participant.
Our 1,350 square foot Fitness Center is well appointed with exercise equipment specifically designed for older adults. It is the perfect place for residents to work out on their own or with one of our fitness instructors.
COVID-Safe Exercise Precautions
In order to maintain 6 feet of physical distance and provide a safe environment in which to exercise, the Fitness Center is open by appointment. Our fitness trainers have also developed small group exercise classes, which they hold in the activity room or in the outdoor gazebo.
One of the newest senior health and wellness programs we offer is the VSTBalance program. This artificial intelligence-driven system helps objectively identify areas in which seniors can improve their balance, gait, and mobility. These three elements play a key role in overall health, and if neglected, could contribute to a fall.
The system uses artificial intelligence and machine vision to complete the assessment, and then automatically generates a mobility/balance report after completion. The objective data from the report enables residents and our team to create a personalized plan to improve strength, balance, and mobility. Residents can take follow-up assessments and track their improvement using the VSTWell app. It’s a great way to visualize progress!
“The best part of this program is the personalized plan that is created for each senior, in order to address opportunities for improvement that have been identified in the process. With this information, seniors become equipped to make proactive decisions about their personal health and safety.”
