Shell Point Retirement Community

Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."

Shell Point kicked off the 2019 Active Aging Week with a week-long itinerary filled with a variety of physical and mental activities for residents to choose from. Each event was unique in its own way and provided opportunities that were engaging, challenging and lots of fun. Shell Point’s fitness team partnered up with various departments including the community’s salon and spas, dining team, physical therapy department, medical center as well as health representatives from the Lee County area, plus, members of the American Heart Association to focus on topics like fall prevention, heart health, overall well-being, skincare and how to maintain a balanced lifestyle. Additionally, residents of Shell Point’s three assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facility were all able to participate in their own activities that were specifically geared towards their individual abilities, health goals and physical therapy needs. Some of the week’s activities included outdoor trail walks, fitness exercises, a visit to a local fresh farm for produce picking, brain and memory education, a Zumba dance party, ecological water cruise, Vitamin C skincare treatment, bowling challenge, indoor golf and more.
