Staying Active While Aging is Important on Multiple Levels

Many individuals are living longer, but that doesn’t necessarily mean healthier. For optimal aging it’s important to take care of your health in multiple ways. It’s essential to eat a healthy diet, get high-quality sleep, keep stress low, quit smoking, limit alcohol, drink plenty of water, and stay active!

If you make small changes, your body will start to become healthier and stronger. When it comes to staying active this not only means exercise, which is necessary, but it also includes staying socially active as well. If you pair the two together, it’s even more beneficial, because it makes exercise fun!

Get Moving! Ask a friend to join you on a walk, swim, bike ride, or jog, depending on your fitness level. If you decide to take a group exercise class, which is a great place to meet new friends, consider taking a Pilates or yoga class, which are both regenerative and easier on the joints. You can also join friends for golf, pickleball or tennis, when you increase your activity, it’s not only good for your cardiovascular health, but also your brain and mood will benefit equally from the increased circulation and oxygen uptake. It’s always important to speak with your physician about the level of exercise that rights for you.

Health Challenges: Aging can be challenging not only relating to our health but also our ability to perform daily tasks and to live the life we deserve. From arthritis, low vision, or the capacity to walk safely from the bathroom to the living room without tripping over an area rug and getting hurt are conditions that many seniors face each day.

According to the AARP, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day. While many hope to age gracefully, 70% of those 65-year-olds need long-term care. As individuals age, of course, that number rises with unexpected health disorders or needing extra help to manage daily activities.

Freedom from Homeownership: For many adults, their priorities change. They no longer want to spend their free time mowing the lawn. Their neighbors may have moved, and they don’t have anything in common with the new neighbors. And very often, they just want to free themselves from the responsibilities of homeownership. Wanting a more manageable lifestyle is a common goal as individuals age. Whatever personal reasons one has when considering a move, today’s seniors want to live independently in a community that’s safe, comfortable, engaging, and, most of all, supportive.

Aston Gardens is also one of the most highly sought after communities, due to their dedication to senior needs, their commitment to enriching the lives of each resident and their families by providing personalized care, welcoming living spaces, and superior amenities within three distinct tiers, which include independent living, assisted living, and memory care facilities.

Independent living focuses on being as active, healthy and independent as you want to be, but never alone. Choose from one of our independent living apartment homes, or a luxury for-sale villa and enjoy the all-inclusive carefree, maintenance-free lifestyle at America’s award-winning senior living community.

Our focus is on health and wellness, helping residents to be as independent as possible with a personalized care plan that includes engaging social activities for a healthy body, enlightened mind and renewed spirit. With beautifully appointed assisted living suites, assisted living at The Inn is easy with the Aston Gardens One Price Personalized Plan.
