Promoting wellbeing practices to improve health and ability
We believe that every older adult has the potential to thrive–to live an optimal life. Episcopal Homes’ Active Living program supports this goal, helping older adults to stay active and socially connected, regardless of physical challenges that may emerge later in life.
Uniquely, at Episcopal Homes elders volunteer to co-create offerings with our personal trainers, physical therapists and other staff members, such as chair yoga, dance and other group offerings. In doing so, they inspire neighbors and friends to stay active and connect—and gain a sense of purpose.
Co-created classes compliment staff-led wellness offerings, such as aquatic therapy, balance and falls prevention, strength and cardio activities. We also offer special programs for elders with Parkinson’s disease and their spouses.
Together, our resident-volunteers, participants and staff foster social connectedness that benefits health and resiliency. Through investment in our elders’ physical health, we promote optimal living and enhance quality of life.
