health and fitness

Watercrest exists to serve and enrich the lives of seniors. We live this

commitment by approaching the design and operation of our communities

from the perspective of creating an environment of well-being. Building a

common unity amongst our residents, their families, and the greater

community, we continually promote healthy lifestyles for seniors.

 

Better health, achieved through regular exercise and physical activity,

is the key to helping residents maintain independence. Our program offers
instructor-led, healthy aging programming such as:

 

        • Tai- Chi

        • Balance and strengthening

        • Cardiovascular endurance

        • Relaxation breathing

        • Aquatics (select locations)

 

Our community program specialists also develop a stimulating calendar of

activities engaging each residents interests. Focusing on the whole person,

these programs offer residents new opportunities for enhanced intellectual,

spiritual, physical, and social well being, improving quality of life.
