Living a healthy and active life

With March marking the beginning of autumn, we are reminded of the importance of living a healthy and active life. At Fleurenville Aged Care, we believe that healthy ageing is about more than just physical health. It's about having a sense of purpose, staying engaged with the world around us, and embracing new experiences and challenges.

Especially for seniors, it's important to stay active to maintain good physical and mental health. Regular exercise can help prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis, and it can also help treat existing health conditions. In addition, exercise has also been shown to improve cognitive function, mood, and overall quality of life. At Fleurenville, we encourage our residents to stay active and engaged by offering a range of activities and programmes that promote physical activity, social interaction, and mental stimulation. From group exercise classes and outdoor activities and social events, we offer our residents a variety of ways to engage and stay active. Physical activity is integral to healthy ageing, and it is never too late to start. However, for seniors starting an exercise programme, it's essential to start slowly and increase the intensity and duration of exercise over time.

In addition to physical activity, social interaction is vital for mental and emotional health. We recognise the importance of social engagement and provide opportunities for our residents to interact with others through group outings, book clubs and games nights.

Mental stimulation is another important aspect of healthy ageing. Activities that challenge the mind, such as crossword puzzles, brain teasers and learning new skills, can help keep the brain alert and prevent cognitive decline. We offer a variety of programmes and workshops to promote mental stimulation and lifelong learning.

Finally, a healthy diet is essential to maintain good health and prevent chronic diseases. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other health problems. At Fleurenville, we work with our residents to develop personalised nutrition plans based on their needs and preferences.

We are committed to healthy and active senior living as we age, giving our residents the tools and resources they need to achieve their health and wellness goals. Whether through our programmes and activities or individualised care plans, we strive to promote our residents' physical, social, and emotional well-being.

Thank you for choosing Fleurenville Aged Care, and we look forward to supporting you on your journey to health and wellness.
