At Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, we believe that the quality of life people experience in their later years can drastically improve by staying active and engaged in life. While increasing your longevity may seem difficult, some habits promote a healthy and active lifestyle that can also help increase your longevity!
An active lifestyle accompanied by socialization are two significant elements of happiness. At Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, we understand the value of socialization amongst seniors. While it can be challenging to get out and meet new people, relationship building is incredibly important and something we promote at our adult active living communities!
The modern retirement age has evolved, and this change has caused many older adults to shift their retirement plans and start to reimagine their retirement. Senior living communities, like Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, have shifted, as well; providing high-quality services and amenities, and upping the quality of life for their residents by encouraging an active lifestyle.
With summer upon us, you will likely be spending more time outdoors than usual. As summer brings great, clear weather, it also brings higher temperatures. An active lifestyle during the summer can be a bit harder to maintain due to heatwaves, but that shouldn’t stop you!
If you live an active lifestyle, it is safe to assume you still love to travel or drive. Senior transportation is a hot topic right now as more transportation options become available. While the tradition of getting in your car and driving is still strong, driving is changing. An active lifestyle sometimes requires active changes in how you operate, and driving a car is no different.
When caring for a senior, caregivers deal with unique experiences and situations that define an extensive journey. Between working full-time, balancing family life, and caregiving, it’s common for family caregivers to become overwhelmed with their situation.
This month, Origin Active Lifestyle Communities is excited to feature an Origin at Spring Creek community member, Eduard, in our March Community Member Spotlight!
This month, Origin Active Lifestyle Communities is excited to feature our Whitehorn Village community member, Elizabeth, in our Community Member Spotlight!
Elizabeth grew up in Germany and at 5 years old, remembers going through the struggles and hardships of WWII in Berlin. She recalls how difficult it was once the war ended – “everyone was starting from nothing and had access to very little food.” Once Americans were allowed to fly food into Germany, Elizabeth says “the food didn’t taste good at all; freeze dried eggs and canned corned beef, but it was better than nothing!”
At Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, we love having the opportunity to learn about the lives of each of our community members. This month, Origin is excited to highlight our Swan Evergreen Village community member, Audrey, who has resided at Swan Evergreen Village since the location opened its doors!
Exercise and physical activity are vital for everyone – whatever your age. Exercise maintains your health, supports weight loss, prevents injuries, and can even lower the risk of heart disease. At Origin Active Lifestyle Communities, we know that staying active can dramatically increase the quality of life as we age. However, staying active can also become more challenging the older we become.
