As we all know, COVID-19 has placed those in senior living, such as assisted living, memory care, or post-acute care into quarantine for their safety. A concern that comes along with that is the harmful effects that a sedentary lifestyle will have on the bones and muscles of the seniors who are not being placed into positions where they are naturally getting the exercise they need to prevent decline. Our communities are proud to have been adapting and acting decisively to ensure that all the people in our care are remaining active and steadfast on their fitness journey to remain in optimal health. Whether through virtual wellness classes, one-on-one exercises from the safety of the resident’s room such as Feel the Beat Fitness, or individually scheduled walks or outings around the community and our secure courtyards, we have made sure that the seniors continue to keep it moving even during quarantine. Here is why that is so important.
