BALANCE, REBALANCE, REPEAT.
The key to senior health and wellness is to stay mentally, spiritually and physically active. You know that, because a life such as yours has meant successfully balancing family, career, social life and spirituality. You know that putting wellness first doesn’t always come naturally (if ever), and it’s surely no surprise that healthy aging in retirement living is one of your life’s major rebalances. We offer help through this most challenging transition in a wellness program for seniors that provides nearly endless opportunities for the mental, spiritual and physical activities that can help you keep your balance. In addition, we think you’ll find that our compassionate professionals — including our life enrichment specialists — and especially our community of active, interesting and life-affirming seniors, are good people to age well with.
STAY FIT AND ENJOY LIFE: THE CHICKEN AND THE EGG.
In the last 2 generations, as life expectancies have pushed nearly a generation higher, Americans’ expectations of retirement living and senior wellness have been upended. To “live well” now has two components: “well” as in healthy aging that includes a sound mind and a fit body; and “live” as in friendships and adventures that bring good days, great memories and spiritual nourishment. This is life at Creekside, where active and not-so-active seniors sometimes bear down, often lighten up and always love the ride as we embrace the journey of life.
MAKE YOURSELF 50% MORE LIKELY TO STAND STRONG.
This just in: Tai Chi substantially decreases the risk of falls in older adults; if you do fall, it can reduce your rate of injury by 50%. At Creekside, we’ve known about Tai Chi’s important benefits for years. Consequently, we’ve offered weekly Tai Chi classes in our fitness studio for years. Joining a class may be the single greatest contributor toward health and wellness any senior can make.
