Here at Living Court Assisted Living Community, our residents take part in health and fitness programming designed to benefit both the body and brain.
More than ever, older adults understand the importance of keeping their bodies and brains in good health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests 150 minutes of exercise per week, with guidelines on splitting cardio and muscle-strengthening exercise.
Along with the health benefits, physical activity helps reduce the risk of falling, which is one of the biggest health and safety risks facing older adults.
While any fitness activity is beneficial, it’s best to mix things up – it forces the brain to be alert and nimble in trying new things rather than going on autopilot while doing something you’ve done many times before.
Whatever your regimen may be – walking, weights, golf, tennis – the important thing is to get started, and keep going.
At Living Court Assisted Living Community, we’re here to help. You can learn more about the benefits of fitness and brain health for older adults with a free webinar Thursday, January 26 at 10 a.m.
It will be hosted by Dr. Rob Winningham, a neuroscientist and aging expert. He will discuss healthy brain practices for the new year to promote wellness in mind, body and spirit, along with the importance of sleep and the healthy brain.
