For over two decades, Senior Resource Group (SRG) retirement communities have embraced the philosophy that “life should improve with age.” At The Village at NorthRidge, the area’s newest luxury retirement community by SRG, residents live vibrant, enriched lifestyles, supported by core programs such as Fitness Matters, a full calendar of activities and heart-healthy dining.
In honor of Healthy Aging Month, The Village at NorthRidge is encouraging area seniors to take some important steps so that they too can live life well.
Eat Healthy – One of the best ways to get healthy and stay healthy is by eating healthy. Good nutrition not only aides in keeping vital organs, muscles and bones strong, but eating vitamin-rich foods boosts immunity and fights illness. Plus, key nutrients like fresh berries and leafy vegetables are known to sharpen the mind.
Exercise – The old mantra, “no pain, no gain,” is out. Today, gentle exercise helps seniors control their weight, strengthen their bodies, improve their balance and feel happier. Low to moderate activities such as walking, gardening and dancing for 20 minutes can reap valuable health rewards. In fact, research reveals that seniors who exercise three or more times per week have delayed the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Don’t Stress – Too much stress can make you sick, so it is vital to learn how to relax. Enjoy a massage, give yoga a try or find a support group to talk with.
Get Support – In addition to speaking with your doctor and talking with family and friends, health fairs are a wonderful arena to learn how you can improve your mental and physical well-being. Check your community calendar, or call The Village at NorthRidge to learn about upcoming workshops and health lectures.
“Over the years, Senior Resource Group 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’ lives,” said Tim Maloney, executive director of The Village at NorthRidge. “Here at The Village at NorthRidge, residents have all the resources, amenities and encouragement they need to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle.”
