The best way to live a healthy life is to be active, eat well, and get enough sleep. But as we age, it can be difficult to keep up with these three pillars of health. In fact, studies have shown that people aged 65+ are less physically active than their younger counterparts. Retirement communities help guests to achieve healthy living by providing a wide range of options to choose from. Here’s how healthy for seniors in Austin,TX is practiced.
Having A Professional Team On Site
Our team of senior living professionals offer a variety of services which are essential for a healthy lifestyle: healthcare, rehabilitation and wellness services. These services help you to stay fit and healthy, which is very important in order to prevent diseases.
Access To Wellness Facilities
It’s important for seniors to stay physically active because it helps them maintain independence and allows them to live in their own homes longer. As we age, our bodies experience many changes that make staying active more difficult. This can include limited mobility and stamina, as well as a decline in cognitive abilities such as memory and concentration. In order to stay active and independent, it is important for seniors to engage in physical activity every day.
Here’s what exercise does for your body:
- Releases endorphins which provide natural pain relief and reduce stress levels. Studies have shown that regular physical activity can improve your mood, decrease anxiety levels and help you sleep better at night.
- Increases blood flow throughout the body which improves oxygen delivery to all organs including the brain
- Helps maintain muscle mass which helps prevent loss of strength due to aging and/or disease processes like Parkinson’s disease (
Our retirement community offers a huge range of exercise programs and classes you can partake in to stay healthy.
A Socialization Hub
Retirement communities are a boon to those who want to live a healthy and active lifestyle. The communities provide them with access to wellness programs, along with the support of others who are going through similar experiences.
Retirement communities offer guests a sense of community, which is essential for their mental health. The stress of caring for an elderly parent or spouse can be overwhelming, but in retirement communities, guests can find comfort in knowing that there are other people just like them going through the same thing. Retirement communities also offer social activities such as game nights, dances, trips to local museums and restaurants, which help seniors maintain their physical health by providing opportunities for exercise and socialization.
