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, be vibrant and engaged in life. Good balance, mobility and sufficient strength is necessary to perform tasks and activities of daily living. However, age-related declines, disease, illness, falls, physical inactivity and habits of too much sitting threaten a senior’s 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 in function, improve and restore function, improve overall health, fitness and extend quality of life. Our ‘Pro-Active Aging’ and ‘Continuum Care Model’ provides our clients with ongoing therapeutic, fitness, wellness, and comprehensive balance, mobility, and fall risk reduction and prevention intervention programs that is designed to extend and improve a senior’s ability to safely remain VIBRANT and INDEPENDENT at home.
