Exercise classes for residents at Renaissance are hugely popular, thanks to accredited Exercise Physiologist Matthew Parrish who comes once a week to help residents with fitness and mobility. We asked Matthew to tell us about some benefits of why retirees should keep an active retirement lifestyle during winter.
The benefits of owning a dog in retirement
The growing belief that pets are not just good, but good for you, may make pet ownership more appealing to retirees. When selecting a retirement village, a key factor for many pet owners is if the village is pet friendly or not.
It seems like the world of aged care and retirement living is currently overflowing with buzzwords or confusing jargon such as ‘Continuum of Care’, ‘Aging in Place’, ‘Integrated Housing’, ‘Multigenerational Living’, ‘Active Aging’, ‘Memory Care’. The list goes on …. and on and is needlessly confusing.
Our residents are growing a healthy crop
It might be winter, but at Renaissance it's also a busy time in the community vegetable garden with residents tending their own little plot of garden creating an abundance of produce to enjoy during the cooler months.
