The Importance of Health and Wellness Programming in Senior Living Communities

Feb 13th, 2019

Health and wellness programs are very important in Senior Living facilities. Keeping physical fitness enhances a person’s quality of life through body, mind, and spirit.

 

Village Shores Senior Community values Health and Wellness. We realize how important regular exercise is to physical health, especially in seniors. It increases a person’s range of motion, strength, balance, and circulation, which can reduce pain and slow the aging process. It can also reduce the risk of falls, heart attack, stroke, and high blood pressure.

 

 

Our new Wellness Center features state-of-the-art Technogym fitness equipment and cloud technology to plan and track your activity. Our full-time wellness staff will orient you to the wellness center and develop personalized exercise plans that fit your physical needs and abilities.

 

The Club at Village Shores offers a variety of wellness programs to our residents. You can find our most recent classes scheduled on the Club Calendar.

 

 

Some of our current (February 2019) classes include:
