Fitness Matters at the Village at Sherman Oaks
Thoughtfully designed to promote healthy aging, The Village at Sherman Oaks retirement living community takes an integrated approach to support the vitality of its residents. Owned and managed by Solana Beach-based Senior Resource Group (SRG), this community offers a full continuum of care centered on wellness and hospitality.
As part of SRG’s new signature wellness program, Fitness Matters, The Village at Sherman Oaks provides residents a lifestyle that includes nutrition and fitness counseling, diversified exercise classes, preventative health workshops, wholesome dining options, a full calendar of social, cultural, educational and recreational activities as well as the knowledge, resources and motivation to allow residents to create their own blueprint for wellness.
In the company’s 20-year experience, SRG has found that the combination of a supportive atmosphere, first-class resources, and service-enriched lifestyle has significantly aided in the personal fulfillment and longevity of residents’ life. In fact, research reveals that seniors who exercise three or more times per week delayed the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and that meaningful activities such as learning, creating, working and volunteering improve seniors’ mental and physical health.
The Village at Sherman Oaks’ Fitness Matters program is designed to foster a culture of improved health and well-being. To do this, the senior living community has created an environment that addresses the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual and vocational well-being of its residents and staff. By embracing all six areas of wellness, Fitness Matters encourages both residents and staff to lead balanced productive lives.
Tracking the success of the community’s involvement is both fun and rewarding as goals are established and met by measuring residents’ involvement in the six domains. Residents track their participation by recording their hours of participation and are rewarded at various intervals with recognition and prizes for meeting personal wellness goals.
Together with the community’s signature Genuine Hospitality program, Fitness Matters strengthens The Village at Sherman Oaks’ commitment to creating stimulating and positive environments for healthy aging.
