Alexandria, VA (February 11, 2020) – Spring Hills Mt. Vernon Assisted Living promotes cardiovascular health for all of its residents through comprehensive events including physical activity, nutrition, and mindfulness.  These activities are part of thoughtful analysis applied to the compassionate care that is Spring Hills’s Signature Touches which encourages health, wellness and peace of mind for total well-being. By focusing on specific needs and desires, it allows Spring Hills to design community services that enhance quality of life, engage residents in new experiences and more.

Thomas Clarke, Executive Director at Spring Hills Mt. Vernon, explains, “Cardiovascular health at every age is critical to living a full and happy life.  We recognize this here at Spring Hills, and we make sure that our residents have every opportunity to optimize their heart health with innovative, enjoyable, accessible activities.  We offer traditional events such as fitness and nutrition to improve our residents’ health.  We also recognize that stress is a causal factor in many heart issues, so we integrate progressive methods such as mindfulness and pet therapy to help our residents relax.”

Alexander Markowits, President/CEO of Spring Hills Senior Communities, adds, “Our priority is always the optimal health of our residents. By providing these innovative heart health activities, encouraging participation, and celebrating success, we enable our residents to live to their fullest potential.”

One of the cornerstones of the engagement program focuses on regular movement and effective physical activity. Giving the residents choices in how they remain heart healthy is another way to ensure they will participate in activities. The activities range from daily exercise presented at appropriate levels to simply keeping the residents moving.
