Superior Care Group is the only aged care provider in Queensland that offers resident lifestyle activities seven days a week, which is offered at Merrimac Park Private Care.
There is a wealth of activities for your loved one to get involved in, including exercises classes and group walks.
While they may seem very simple activities, the benefits of these activities are vast.
As you will have notices, the body takes a little longer to repair itself with age, but even elderly people with chronic illnesses can safely partake in moderate physical activity.
In fact, the benefits of your elderly parents exercising frequently far outweigh the risks.
Regular exercise protects them from chronic disease, improves mood and lowers chances of injury. It also helps in the management of high cholesterol and arthritis pain.
Many medical conditions are improved with exercise, including Alzheimer’s and dementia, heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, high blood pressure and obesity.
Regular exercise can also improve osteoporosis, neuro-cognitive function, immune function, cardio-respiratory and cardiovascular function, and gastrointestinal function.
While we have experienced and qualified nursing staff on hand 24/7 to care for these medical conditions and administer the appropriate medication where needed, having regular exercise classes and walking groups is a more social and enjoyable way for your loved one to manage their general health and wellbeing.
Further to the exercise activities, the lifestyle program also includes luncheons, outings, art and craft, indoor bowls, concerts, sing-alongs and music appreciation.
Each day is memorable and there is a sense of camaraderie between your loved one and other residents as they create long-lasting friendships with their peers.
Superior Care Group caters for all aged care needs, boasts state of the art facilities and maintains a fresh approach to lifestyle for our residents.
