Terry goes on to explain that the program encompasses all of the six dimensions of Optimum Life – physical, emotional, purposeful, social, spiritual and intellectual – and provides instructors with action items to ensure residents are benefiting on a variety of levels.
"At Brookdale, we know how important it is for our residents to stay active," Terry said. "Exercise not only helps our residents increase bone density and functional abilities, it can improve mental and emotional health, support a sense of purpose, and provide opportunity for socialization."
