Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."
At BRC, our whole person wellness program lives up to our vision to "enhance and energize healthy living" each day! We focus on the eight dimensions of wellness and how we can incorporate living life to the fullest for all. We are taking active and well rounded to the next level. For Active Aging Week 2019, we wanted to celebrate redefining active by rolling out our brand new group fitness classes across all levels of living on our campus. These included highlighting BAM!, a balance and mobility class, (so popular already that we've added another date and time) Mindful Motion, Moving & Grooving in our assisted living, Fit & Fabulous for our households and much more! We featured Happy Hands!, a hand therapy clinic with exercises that participants can continue to work on at home including a smiley face stress ball to always remember your smile. We also participated in off campus trips to expand our minds and continue to live our vibrant, active lives together.
