Health and Wellness are Cornerstones of a Senior Lifestyle

in Alzheimer's & Dementia, Health & Wellness

You want your loved one to BE Healthy in body and mind to maximize their joy in life.

You want your loved one to be healthy in body and mind — the best version of her/himself in body, mind, and spirit — to enjoy the best version of life. Fitness, a healthy diet, mental clarity, and a deep spiritual connection build that foundation, while a Spectrum community provides the creature comforts for a life well-lived.

Movement is an integral part of maintaining strength and agility when participating in beloved activities: playing with grandchildren, traveling with a loved one, experiencing new and exciting things, and enjoying every minute. All the things you want for your loved one … made easy through a maintenance-free lifestyle at Spectrum Retirement.

Imagine your loved one starting their days by meeting a resident walking group for exercise and camaraderie. Or a quiet Tai Chi practice for stretching both body and mind. Your loved one will thrive in a fun, lively fitness class full of friends and a vivacious instructor! The choice is theirs, and the best part is that they can choose a different activity every day.

Of course, to keep your loved one’s battery charged for the variety of daily activities, they need high-quality, delicious foods packed with nutrients. The dining program at Spectrum Retirement is best in class. Chef-prepared meals are available throughout the day and we cater to a variety of physician-prescribed dietary requirements.

There are a variety of options from a full, sit-down meal in the dining room to lighter fare and snacks in the Bistro. And your loved one is always welcome to invite family and friends over for dinner. Our kitchen is everyone’s kitchen! For the times your loved one feels like cooking at home, they might choose to make a recipe they picked up in one of the community cooking demonstrations. The possibilities for dining pleasure are unlimited!

Speaking of pleasure, exercising the mind is a wonderful way for your loved one to connect with their inner self, feel grounded and centered, and keep the ol’ cognition kickin’! Science tells us that like heart health, brain health is directly influenced by our environment and lifestyle. A recent report from the National Institute of Health says, in a nutshell, the sooner your loved one begins flexing their mental muscles, the more effective cognitive activities will be later when they’re really needed.

 

Up-Level Your Loved One’s Healthy Lifestyle!

 

At Spectrum Retirement, your loved one will enjoy a bevy of classes, games, study groups, and more to keep their brain busy and heart happy. Read more about our inspiring activities!

One of the greatest things about life in a retirement community is just that — the community. Every time your loved one steps out of their door, they have instant access to friends. Meaningful and casual connections keep loneliness at bay as well as provide opportunities to learn from others. Your loved one might learn to knit. Nancy down the hall would love to teach her favorite craft! Your loved one might be longing for a buddy who loves watching football as much as they do? Packer Paul is known to plan community game day parties — he’s the resident go-to tailgating guy. Maybe some friends to visit with over a cup of coffee is what your loved one wants. The Spectrum lifestyle makes making new friends easy!

In addition to a deep connection with others, we know a meaningful spiritual practice is a key component of a healthy lifestyle. We also recognize that spirituality takes on many forms, so we provide a variety of ways for your loved one to connect to their higher power. For some, that means daily prayer. For others it means meditation. Still others find giving of themselves is the best way to pay homage. However your loved one defines spirituality, they will be free and encouraged to practice it, embrace it, share it, or keep it all to themselves — whatever feels right for their heart and soul. The choice is always theirs.
