Senior living for a happier, healthier you
It’s a fact — active seniors lead richer, more satisfying lives. At Holiday, we’ve created a comprehensive program of activities and events designed to stimulate the seven dimensions of wellness.
Our residents enjoy innovative and engaging physical activities each week. This includes Wii bowling, bean bag baseball, balloon volleyball, yoga and more. Our robust calendar helps seniors become the happiest, healthiest version of themselves.
Physical activity helps seniors improve quality of life by:
Boosting mental wellness through the release of tension which can contribute to anxiety, depression or anger
Improving physical wellness which can help ward off preventive and chronic diseases
Prolonging optimal health, including strength, stamina and weight
Improving sleep cycles
Providing a social activity with family and friends
Increasing physical independence
