Wellness

Our wellness program helps residents live their best lives today and live well for the future.

Our Wellness Center hosts an array of classes for exercise, balance, movement and relaxation. We also have a Fitness Center with a variety of additional exercise equipment to meet individual needs, including a NuStep, treadmill, recumbent bike and elliptical trainer. Our exercise options accommodate residents who like to keep their own routine and schedule as well as those who enjoy the social aspect and guidance of group classes. A full program of integrative health offers further options for achieving health and wellness.

Chair Yoga/Relaxation

Residents enjoy this gentle approach to movement and leave class moving better and feeling relaxed and refreshed. The class focuses on mobility, breath, posture and relaxation. No fee.

Chair Exercise

Performed mostly while seated, residents get exercise by moving, stretching and strengthening at their own pace and effort level. Wheelchairs welcome. Our volunteer Angels (or classes on DVD) lead the morning class, and the wellness coordinator leads the afternoon class. No fee.

Advanced Stretch

Taught by our restorative nursing aides, this class focuses on breathing, stretching, posture and exercises for the arms and legs. It helps promote circulation, muscle strength and overall feeling of well-being. No fee.

Wii Bowling

There’s no heavy lifting here – just all fun. That’s because Wii bowling is done by a sensing computer. It’s a good way to get a little exercise and keep a competitive spirit. Can be done while seated or standing. No experience necessary. No fee.

Fit Circuit

A small class of 8, Fit Circuit incorporates movement from station to station, strength, balance, flexibility and coordination exercises. Requires monthly registration and payment.

Balance Class

This class, limited to 4, focuses specifically on balance and gait, and not as much on the strength component that is also part of Fit Circuit. The rotation of exercises provides opportunities to sit and rest. Walkers and canes welcome but an ability to stand and walk for short periods without pain or fatigue is recommended. Requires registration and payment.

Tai Chi

This ancient Chinese discipline involves a continuous series of controlled, slow movements to improve physical and mental well-being. A chair is near each participant as an assist or resting place as needed. Benefits include improved strength and balance, reduced stiffness and improved sleep quality. Requires pre-registration and payment for 7-week session.

Personal Training, Private or Small Group

Residents receive one-on-one attention in an exercise program that suits individual needs and goals. Personal training may be used as a transition from physical therapy, as a regular weekly session for wellness or an occasional boost to adjust and modify a self-led program. Requires scheduling and payment.

Integrative Health

From essential oil therapy and grounding to holistic nutrition and mindful meditation, our assisted living and rehabilitation care offer a menu of safe, non-clinical ways to complement your medical plan for healing and wellness.

The Playing Field


The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
