In the company’s 20-year experience, SRG has found that the combination of a supportive atmosphere, first-class resources, and a service-enriched lifestyle has significantly aided in the personal fulfillment and longevity of residents’ lives. That’s why, in honor of “Older Americans Month,” SRG offers four practical ways seniors can improve their health and well-being.
Get up and go! With just 30 minutes of movement three days a week like walking, chair aerobics or aquacizing, seniors can reduce stress and risks of disease while also increasing their endurance, flexibility and mobility.
Indulge a little. It has been scientifically proven that dark chocolate has significant health benefits. Dark chocolate includes flavonoids that act as antioxidants and can protect the body from aging, as well as help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.Eat your fruits and veggies. The same beneficial flavonoids found in dark chocolate are also found in many vegetables and fruits. Plus, scientists believe that flavonoids may also lower risk for cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer.
Play. Games are not only entertaining, they are a great way to challenge your mind and keep it sharp. Give Sunday’s crossword puzzle or an electronic game (like Wii) a try; playing will help increase your brain’s speed, function and memory.
For additional ways to improve health and longevity, seniors and their family are invited to tour The Village at Northridge, now open in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Beyond the community’s advanced wellness program, The Village at NorthRidge includes an innovative blend of comfort, style, social and recreational opportunities.
