Staying Active is important in Senior Living Communities Back
Making the decision to move to a senior living community doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your daily activeness and exercise. Staying active is an important part of your lifestyle as you age. Exercise has a plethora of benefits such as the opportunity for social activity, improved strength and mobility and strengthened mental function. Now, I’m not talking about the kind of exercise that involves heavy weight lifting or running a marathon, simply going for a five minute walk has benefits for your heart and bones.
At Lake Forest Park, you will find several ways to fulfill your exercise goals. Both our independent living and assisted living communities have access to our seasonally heated outdoor swimming pool which is perfect for year-round enjoyment. At the pool, residents can participate in aqua aerobics classes that are easy on the joints and enhance balance. On the property, you will also find landscaped walking paths for memory care, assisted and independent living residents. Residents enjoy strolls on the trail to experience the nature and weather in beautiful Ft. Pierce, Florida. With options for memory care, independent or assisted living residents, you can be rest assured that an active lifestyle is encouraged at Lake Forest Park.
Our job at Lake Forest Park is to help you enjoy life in retirement. Part of happy living is taking care of your body. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle helps fight disease and keep your muscles and brain strong. Join the Lake Forest Park community in choosing to improve overall well-being and pursue an active way of life.
