Maintaining a high-quality, fun, and engaging fitness program at your senior living community can be tough. To do so, you need helpful tools in your tool box. Enter - StrongerU Senior Fitness and Welbi! In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of exercise for older adults, the ROI of fitness programs, and the role of life enrichment tools in bringing these benefits and ROI to your community.
Exercise is crucial for seniors as it offers physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and so many other benefits. By dispelling common myths about aging and exercise and encouraging residents to embrace physical activity, you can help them to enhance strength, balance, flexibility, manage chronic conditions, reduce the risk of falls, and improve overall well-being.
Investing in your fitness program not only benefits residents but also contributes to a healthy business. A robust life enrichment program that promotes active aging attracts new residents, enhances competitive positioning, leads to longer lengths of stay, and increases referrals. High quality fitness programming increases quality of life and ROI for your senior living community.
StrongerU Senior Fitness provides life enrichment professionals with access to self-paced, evidence-based education and 30-minutes of brand-new class content each month to learn and teach to residents. StrongerU classes are created using a holistic approach to ensure something for everyone. You’ll have everything you need to help your residents reach the older adult physical activity guidelines with access to four class formats- Cardio, Strength, Stretch, and Balance. Once you’re armed with quality fitness expertise, a powerful life enrichment tool that can help you understand residents' preferences and fitness needs is Welbi.
Let’s be honest. Not everyone likes to exercise. We all know it’s good for us, but that’s often not motivation enough. By analyzing resident profiles and assessments, Welbi allows you to tailor your fitness class invitation based on what’s important to that resident. Have a resident that couldn’t care less about fitness, but their brain health is important to them? Cardiovascular exercise has been shown to provide a more positive impact on brain health than traditional “brain” activities like doing crosswords or sudokus. You can also use Welbi to match programming to their fitness goals, mobility requirements, and preferences. This data-driven approach ensures a higher level of engagement by offering activities that match residents' interest and tailoring invites. Combining the power of StrongerU Senior Fitness with Welbi, life enrichment teams have a powerful combo to ensure engagement.
