At The Lakeside at Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach, Florida, we're witnessing a remarkable transformation in the lives of our residents. They're excited about the fun challenge of active aging, and the results are nothing short of impressive. With a customized fitness program tailored to seniors, we're seeing fewer falls, improved mobility, and a newfound sense of happiness and health. This exciting initiative is made possible through our partnership with AAAI/ISMA Fitness, which provided our team with a specialized senior fitness certification training.

Revolutionizing the Aging Experience

It’s time to bring active aging to the forefront of our senior living community. Active aging is a holistic concept that is more than just exercise routines; it’s about getting rid of the old ageist stereotypes and embracing a comprehensive view of wellness. We understand that seniors want to stay active, so we're rolling out programs that put a strong focus on Health and Fitness at The Lakeside at Amelia Island. This includes classes and activities designed to enhance flexibility, strength, balance, and more—all in sync with the evolving needs and desires of our senior residents.

All About Our Fitness Program

In a world dominated by sedentary lifestyles, our fitness program stands as a shining light of something new. We take a look at every aspect of active aging. For example, understanding the crucial role of foot health in maintaining mobility and preventing falls is crucial, which is why we encourage our seniors to exercise their feet. Also, our program features a blend of enjoyable activities, such as Tai Chi, yoga, deep breathing, dancing, and informative sessions on hydration and nutrition. We've also embraced the digital age by offering virtual meditation classes via Zoom. And if residents want to add in a little personal fitness with their group classes, we encourage them to engage in strength training in our gym.

The Joy of Active Aging

The impact of our new fitness programs is seen on the smiles of our residents’ faces and in the results of their health and wellness. We've witnessed a surge in confidence and happiness among our assisted living, independent living, and dementia care residents. They are smiling, forming new friendships, and enjoying getting to know staff members more than ever. It truly has uplifted our community! Plus, as their physical health advances, so does their motivation. For instance, residents who are experiencing improvements in activities like "sit to reach" and walking assessments, are finding new self-confidence and enthusiasm for the programs.

Active aging brings a multitude of health benefits, including lowered blood pressure, enhanced mobility, and weight loss. We look forward to welcoming more residents to join our comprehensive fitness programs, which continue to prove that age is just a number.

Building Bonds and Uplifting Lives

At the core of our mission is the creation of deeper connections and the formation of new friendships. Our focus on fitness not only supports this goal but also brings many personal benefits. At The Lakeside at Amelia Island our residents now have the right support to lead healthy, active lives through our specially designed fitness program for seniors. Stress is diminishing, lives are transforming, and happiness is spreading.
