Overview

Amber Springs is pleased to offer our Wellness Program which is designed to increase the length of time a person can enjoy a healthy, active, positive quality of life.  Our program is based on a nationally designed wellness program, which has been developed from reliable medical research completed on the older adult population.  Improved health care helps increase “health span”.

 

Specific Wellness Program features:

 

Seated Exercise:  Recommended for people with arthritis, early stage osteoporosis, chronic pain, joint replacement, or those who have previously been inactive.  This specific program is designed to alleviate stiff joints, chronic pain, and help increase bone density, even if the individual is wheelchair bound.

 

Walking Program:  A program appropriate for people of all fitness levels.  Walking helps improve circulation, lower blood pressure and anxiety, and increase bone density of the lower body.

 

Reminiscence Group:  Designed to encourage open discussions about the past, present, and future.  Not only does the program provide many social benefits through the exchange of stories, ideas, and information, but it also helps exercise the minds of participants.

 

Our Wellness Program is designed for those individuals wishing to incorporate nutrition, counseling, stress management, spiritual, social and other meaningful group activities into their lives.
