Fitness & Function promotes the concept of Aging in Place. Most older adults want to age and stay in their own home and be independent for as long as possible. Good balance, mobility and sufficient strength is necessary to perform tasks and activities of daily independent living. Age-related declines, disease, illness, falls, physical inactivity and habits of too much sitting threaten precious independence. Research has shown that extending independence is possible with targeted exercise programs, therapeutic exercise and intensive fall risk intervention programs which can stop and reverse declines, improve and restore function, improve overall health, fitness and quality of life.
In 2015 we extended our services with in-home outpatient physical therapy that transitions the older adult from receiving traditional episodic intervention to a Pro-Active Aging Continuum of Care Model that is designed to Extend and Improve a senior’s ability to safely remain VIBRANT and INDEPENDENT at home by receiving ongoing therapeutic, fitness, wellness and comprehensive balance, mobility and fall risk reduction and intervention programs.
