Health is an important issue to people of all ages, but especially for those who are 65 years of age and above. Those within this age group have an increased susceptibility to illness and injury, which is why stringent measures must be taken to prevent it.
About Our Senior Living Health Programs
Discovery Village At Stuart has implemented a health program that focuses on three core areas, which are aerobics, strength training, and diet. This regimen is designed to release specific growth hormones within your brain and centralized nervous system which will boost your cognitive functioning, physical strength, flexibility, and stamina. Research has consistently shown that those beyond middle age will gain a host of benefits from partaking in it.
Benefits of Having Senior Living Health Programs in Your Senior Living Community
It should first be emphasized that our health program is completely optional; members do not have to partake in it if they choose not to. However, most community residents choose to try and we highly recommend it due to the many benefits you’ll gain, which include:
- The prevention of stroke, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia
- Promotes healing of injuries and speeds up surgical recovery
- Much greater strength and flexibility
- Higher balance and coordination with reduced risk of slips and falls
Did you know that falls have become one of the most common injuries sustained by elders? Depending on where and how you land, you can sustain damage to the head or perhaps even suffer a hip fracture. By engaging in the exercises provided by our therapists, your legs, hip, feet, and thighs will become strengthened and coordinated, perhaps to the extent where you will no longer have to depend on a cane or crutches to move around.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
We recommend becoming a member of our community as soon as possible, especially if you’re already suffering from age-related disorders. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to get desirable results. Just because you’re an active and healthy retiree today doesn’t mean that you will be tomorrow, and beginning our therapy programs while you’re still active and healthy is one of the best ways to prevent age-related diseases before they occur. Those that already have such ailments will notice significant benefits which will allow them to enjoy a much higher quality of life.
Why Choose Discovery Village At Stuart?
The majority of traditional retirement homes don’t offer anything comparable to the health program offered by our community. We have physical therapists, dietitians, and fitness experts to help our community members fight off aging in multiple ways. While most retirement homes are content to simply look after elders, our community and health regimens are designed to help you live actively and healthily, and that is what makes our services different from the rest.
