Exercise Physical wellness, one of the Eight Dimensions of wellness we follow, is crucial when it comes to heart health. We have a wide variety of ways for residents to exercise at our luxury senior housing community in Lake in the Hills.
The American Heart Association suggests at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (or an equal combination of both) each week. With our robust activities calendar and wellness programs, that’s no problem for our assisted living and memory care residents.
There is a state-of-the-art fitness center, expertly trained fitness instructors, and relaxing outdoor walking paths on our property that can be enjoyed daily. However, the Melody Movers and Shakers are the most popular way for our residents to stay fit. We choose upbeat music that is beloved with our residents to enjoy while they’re getting in their daily moves. The Movers and Shakers dance together to get their blood flowing and their heart rate to rise - watch out Rockettes! This groovy group is a big hit at our luxury senior living community. We wouldn’t be surprised if they make it big!
Having a heart healthy diet is easy to do at Melody Living’s luxury senior living community. Chef Ryan Burchall and his culinary team create dishes with a wide variety of locally sourced fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
The cuisine is always centered around healthy sources of protein. Our culinary team works together to ensure our residents’ special dietary needs are always met with savory creations we know they will enjoy.
Chef Burchall’s philosophy is to invest in understanding the nutritional benefits of different foods and generate ways to incorporate a wide variety of heart healthy items in each meal.
