According to WHO, active aging allows people to realize their potential for physical, social, and mental wellbeing through the course of their life.
In the presence of strong evidence linking physical inactivity to chronic health conditions and increased physical activity to lower mortality and morbidity in older adults, it is vital to develop a strong commitment to improving physical activity levels in older adults.
AlfredHouse senior living facilities offer freedom of lifestyle, encouraging the opportunity to stay in good health for long. We recognize that risks for disability and dementia may be diminished and cognitive function is improved with regular exercise in older adults.
Thus, our residents are motivated to participate in ongoing physical activities and engage themselves in new interests in order to maintain health and well-being.
AlfredHouse assisted living facilities provide a comprehensive and holistic approach to maintaining good health inclusive of a person’s mind, body, and soul. We conduct health and well-being workshops and seminars to train the caregivers who in turn, help keep the residents actively involved.
A great example is the AlfredHouse walking and aerobics club, where residents take part in daily exercise to improve their mobility and agility. We also promote yoga to help our residents stay healthy.
Over time, these forms of exercise have become a meaningful occupation by offering social connectedness and psychological benefit through valued friendships, shared time, and reaching personal goals. It provides a new impetus to life, to engage in an activity of meaning that ultimately aids healthy aging.
