Scientific studies have revealed that retirees 65 years of age and older who maintain a regular health and fitness regimen have a reduced likelihood of developing illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Parkinson’s, cancer and Alzheimer’s.  It is for this reason that Discovery Village At Sugarloaf created the Dimensions Health & Wellness to encourage physical fitness among residents.

About Dimensions Health & Wellness

Our fitness program consists of two categories which are aerobics and strength training. Both are designed to release specific hormones within one’s central nervous system that will enhance their cognitive function. In fact, research indicates that those who are middle aged and beyond will gain the greatest benefits from such training, and we employ professional instructors.

Benefits of Having Dimensions Health & Wellness in Your Senior Living Community

While most retirees recognize the importance of engaging in physical fitness, they often find it dull and onerous. This is why we’ve recruited instructors who make the process fun and engaging. They are experienced with working with elders and will start off slow, getting you accustomed to the basic movements and performing simple tasks before moving on to more advanced and strenuous techniques.

It must also be noted that residents living in Discovery Village At Sugarloaf are never forced or coerced into participating in the Dimensions Health & Wellness program. However, we highly recommend it as partaking in such activities will allow you to live a longer and fuller life while minimizing the development of various age related disorders.

No one wants to have a stroke, develop cancer or suffer cognitive decline due to dementia, yet this is exactly what will happen to many elders who fail to exercise their bodies and minds. While the physical activities might seem a bit tedious at first, with determination and consistency you’ll see results, and you’ll be much healthier than most people of the same age group.

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?

Ideally, you want to move into our community as soon as possible. While we can accommodate retirees who are mobility challenged, many elders choose to relocate to Discovery Village At Sugarloaf while they’re still active. This makes it a lot easier to get settled in, make new friendships and begin our Dimensions Health & Wellness. If you wait until you’re recovering from a stroke, surgery or injury to begin the training, it will be much harder to gain the benefits, so the earlier you get starter, the better.

Why Choose Discovery Village At Sugarloaf?

We employ the nation’s top fitness and wellness experts to manage our Dimensions program. They are college educated and understand the human body, its anatomy, the aging process and how to work with patients who are 65 years of age and older. The regimen they will introduce is designed to keep your mind razor sharp and your body strong and fit so that you can continue to enjoy a tranquil life for as long as you live.
