Health and Wellness
Staying healthy and active into ones 80s and 90s is critical to aging well and maintaining physical health and well-being. Our network of Shepherd’s Centers offer an array of exciting opportunities across the country perfect for older adults.
These wellness programs range from weekly exercise classes to nutritional education to health screenings to health literacy initiatives. They are all designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and social support for ensuring healthy lifestyles so participants can continue to do the things they most enjoy in life.
Day after day in communities large and small across U.S., older adults come together to take part in classes that range from Tai Chi to yoga to square dancing to chair exercises to line dancing. There’s even water aerobics and Zumba!
Our caring network also promotes the wellness of caregivers to help them remain healthy and safe in their caregiving roles. Our caregiver support groups and trademark Breaktime Club provide caregivers a day of much needed respite while their loved one participates in enriching, social activities with others.
