We understand that residents under our Assisted Living and SHINE® Memory Care living options are working towards improving their overall health and gaining a better quality of life. As such, we assist in this area through our Dimensions Health and Fitness program. This program ensures that your loved ones receive adequate help and resources to achieve a healthier lifestyle from interactive fitness programs to state-of-the-art medical care.
About Senior Health & Wellness
Here at Blue Ridge, we encourage our residents to excel in their health by adopting a holistic lifestyle. A holistic lifestyle looks into all seven aspects of our way of living: medical, physical, emotional, mental, social, psychological, and spiritual. As such, the activities and programs offered by us are specially designed to address these needs, so that loved ones can engage their minds, souls, and bodies. Our fitness programs include exercise classes, walking trips, learning programs, and even pet therapies. As all the activities are hosted by our team of experienced fitness personnel, your loved ones are under constant supervision, so you and your family members can rest assured of their safety. There’s even an on-site medical team to provide assistance if an emergency occurs.
Benefits of Having Senior Health & Wellness in Your Senior Living Community
Leading an active and healthy lifestyle can bring about many benefits for loved ones, including the following:
- Improve mental health, as participating in activities help alleviate feelings of depression, stress, anxiety, loneliness, and more.
- Exercises can boost the immune system, so your loved ones are less susceptible to illnesses, infections, and diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
- An active lifestyle will also improve range of motion, and your loved ones will soon find their energy levels increasing.
- For loved ones who are overweight, leading an active lifestyle helps to reduce the risk of weight gain and maintain healthy weight.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
If your loved ones are wanting to take part in fitness programs yet are unsure of how and where to start, our Dimensions Health and Fitness program will provide a good opportunity for them. Here at Blue Ridge, all our activities and events are supervised by fitness professionals who are well-experienced in their fields and can offer the necessary care for loved ones. As such, your loved ones can feel free to participate in the programs, with the added reassurance of a medical team on-site.
