Senior Wellness

Senior Wellness Overview

The evidence is undeniable, physical activity and exercise is good for you. Regular physical activity can help improve mental and physical health, which can maintain your independence as you age.

The benefits of exercise for seniors and aging adults include:
  • Prevention of disease: such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
  • Improved mental health: Exercise helps reduce stress and sleep.
  • Decreased risk of falls: Exercise improves strength and flexibility, which also help improve balance and coordination and further reduce the risk of falls.
  • Improved cognitive function: Research suggest a lower risk of dementia for physically active individuals, regardless of when you begin a routine.
  • Social engagement: Exercise in social setting can be fun and make you happy.
Maintaining strong community ties is important for aging adults to avoid feelings of loneliness or depression. Our senior wellness classes can help you start an exercise program. They are designed for seniors who are looking to stay fit after physical therapy or just stay physically active.
