Wellness Activities for Seniors

Aegis wellness programs are designed to get purposeful, powerful, proven results focusing on the seven dimensions of wellness.  We take a holistic approach designed to help individuals be well wherever they are.  Health and wellness are important to every aspect of our lives.  If you eat healthy foods and exercise regularly, then your mind, body and spirit will remain strong as well.  As we age, it is more vital to maintain and improve health so that we don’t have a greater risk of wellness concerns later on in life.  By incorporating wellness activities into your daily routine, it can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Alzheimer’s and Dementia
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Depression
