The Importance of Exercise in Aging

Feb 16 2015

It is a no secret that we benefit from exercise.  The problem is that many of us don’t keep up with a good fitness program as we age.  It is also very important to be aware of how you should adjust and adapt your routine as you get older.  Visit helpguide.org and read about Exercise and Fitness as You Age.  There you can learn about fitness myths, mental and physical benefits, and different types of trainings. 

Physical fitness also provides perks to those suffering from Alzheimer’s.  Click over to alzheimerscaredaily.com for the article Encouraging Your Elderly Loved One With Alzheimer’s to Exercise.

Here at The Villas, we offer numerous fitness options in every monthly activities calendar.  You can download our monthly calendar by clicking it under the Resources section of this website. Have questions about Alzheimer’s?  Give us a call!
