Healthy Aging and Physical Activity

Updated: Apr 21, 2021

As you consider care and need options for aging family members in Scottsdale and Central Phoenix, explore the many services that residential assisted living homes offer. One important aspect of residential assisted living is the ability to live in a neighborhood home similar to what your loved one is accustomed to and familiar with. A critical aspect of our offering at Bella Vita Assisted Living in Central Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, is regularly scheduled fitness activities.

According to The American Academy of Family Physicians, regular exercise provides a myriad of health benefits in older adults, including improvements in blood pressure, diabetes, lipid profile, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and neurocognitive function. Regular physical activity is also associated with decreased mortality and age-related morbidity in older adults.

Regularly scheduled activities at Bella Vita Assisted Living in Central Phoenix and Scottsdale include,

  • Outdoor walks on backyard walking path

  • Gardening in raised planters

  • Chair Yoga

  • Water Aerobics

  • Wii Games - bowling, tennis, golf, baseball

We believe that regular physical activity is vital for healthy aging. Studies show that inactivity not only negatively affects physical well-being and emotional and cognitive as well. Bella Vita will coordinate with your loved one's healthcare providers to offer a range of physical activities that promote overall well-being. Have questions about the activities we offer at Bella Vita Senior Living, send us an email or give us a call to learn more.
