    Testimonial from Betty-Joanexpand

    A testimonial from Betty-Joan, daughter of a Westerleigh resident:

    “My whole family is thrilled at the quality of care and service being offered to my father in general, but his birthday was particularly heart-warming. We are most grateful to all the staff at Westerleigh PARC.”

    Real Life Resident Stories - Maryexpand

    “Life is so full.”

    After paragliding at 70 years of age and running a guest ranch in Arizona, you may suppose Mary has begun slowing a bit in her latter years. Not so. This dynamo hits the weights several times a week in the Westerleigh PARC gym, attends a balance and stretch class, and walks a lot.

    “I just love exercise,” she says. “If I don’t exercise, I don’t feel well.” Mary demonstrates how she can lift her leg to the height of a ballet bar and stretch to reach her foot.

    She exercises her mind as well, playing Duplicate Bridge, attending weekly quiz sessions, completing crosswords, watching documentaries and attending the symphony. It seems Mary’s memory benefits from her endeavours, because when her kids or grandkids lose their cell phones, they call her for the numbers. “I remember them all.” she smiles.

    With life going full-speed for Mary, she couldn’t be happier. Her advice to others? “You have to keep active… and you always have to see the fun in life.” Clearly, she does.

    That’s how it is at Westerleigh PARC: residents get involved. They stay active. And pursue passions. They eat healthier and laugh more. And with PARC’s focus on Independent Living+ program, it’s easy to see how life’s just better here.

    Real Life Resident Stories - Stanexpand

    “Fitness is one of the most important things in my life”

    Whether it’s teeing one up on the golf course or stretching and strengthening limbs at his fitness class, Stan seems to be enjoying pretty much everything in his day-to-day living. “Fitness is one of the most important things in my life,” he says.

    Add the social factor in, and Stan’s in his element. He finds it effortless to get to know people and is happy about how friendly and easy-going everyone is at Westerleigh PARC. “Everyone here has an interesting story” he explains.

    Stan is always keen to step outside for excursions around the neighbourhood:  he enjoys walks along the seawall and dropping into the community library, plus joins organized outings with some of the other residents.

    Stan only recently gave up his involvement with the embroidery factory he owned and operated. Yet happily for Stan, it seems life isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

    That’s how it is at Westerleigh PARC:  it’s so easy to embrace your interests or start something brand new. And with PARC Retirement Living’s focus on maintaining a healthy body and mind through our Independent Living+ program, it’s easy to see how life’s just better here.

    Preventing fallsexpand

    One moment you’re reaching for that teapot on the upper shelf of your kitchen. The next, you’re on the floor writhing in pain, chastising yourself for having not been more careful.

    It’s oh too common. One-third of people aged 65 years and over typically fall once or more in any calendar year, and nearly one-half of people in long-term care facilities were admitted because they had a fall.

    Break your hip, and it can be even worse. Half of those who do, never regain their pre-fall level of functioning. The good news? There is plenty you can do to help prevent falls from happening.

    Naturally, you can’t entirely eliminate the risk of falling (short of sitting in your chair all day and not going anywhere).  Yet there are precautions you can take.

    So, what contributes to a fall?

    It’s all about balance. Having a lack of stability or the inability to recover your balance is the most common reason for falls.

    There are a number of factors that contribute to a lack of balance:

    • Chronic illnesses like strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, arthritis and heart disease can cause instability.

    • Taking multiple medications or inappropriate use of meds increases the risk of falling.

    • Age-related sensory changes like poor eyesight or hearing, muscle weakness or poor gait

    • An over-indulgence in alcoholic beverages

    • Slippery floors, throw rugs and loose carpeting

    • Walking surfaces cluttered with objects like cords, pet dishes or newspapers

    • Carrying heavy or awkward bags or purses

    What can you do?

    The three most beneficial actions you can take are: exercise, exercise and exercise. Whether it’s Tai Chi, chair yoga, resistance training in the gym or Nordic walking, it’s important to keep your muscles on the move. You’ll retain strength and balance to help prevent a weakening of the muscles that can lead to a fall. The other benefit is that if you DO fall, stronger muscles will help you cushion the fall and help protect the bones against possible breaks.

    If you’re on medications, ensure you keep regular appointments with PARC’s Wellness Nurse to review them, especially if dosages change or your condition changes.

    If you indulge in alcoholic beverages, ensure you are sitting down at the time, and ask for help if you need it to stand up, and even get to your room. Staff are always available to assist.

    Take stock of your suite. Are there loose items lying around you could trip over, or unstable surfaces? Try and clear any potential hazards.

    Try to minimize what you need to carry around. Extra bags and big purses can easily throw one off balance.

    If you have an assistive walking device, use it. Always.

    Don’t be shy in asking for help reaching for difficult-to-reach items.

    Eat regularly. PARC cuisine offers you all the nutritional benefits your body needs. By eating well and eating regularly, you will help prevent your joints, muscles and bones from weakening.

     

    Through PARC Retirement Living’s Independent Living+ program, we have a full complement of resources and services to help promote your health through active aging. We offer exercise classes, a gym, wellness nurse, chauffeur service, PARC SMART nutritional options and more. By actively utilizing these resources, you’ll be doing your best to prevent muscle deterioration, helping to prevent falls.

    1st Annual Health & Wellness Eventexpand

    On May 22 to May 25th, PARC Retirement Living held its first annual Health & Wellness Open House at each of the four residences to launch Independent Living+, our focused program that provides preventative, active aging and assists residents to attain improved health and wellness.

    Speakers included Colin Milner, CEO of the International Council of Active Aging, providing an engaging presentation on how active aging can directly improve your quality of life. Manager of Active Living for PARC, Rob Huppée, also spoke about the LivingBalance™ program, giving attendees an insiders look at how nutrition, physical exercise and brain fitness are incorporated into daily living at PARC Retirement residences.

    Nutritious gourmet creations were served by the resident chefs, hand massages were provided, musical entertainment kept attendees content, there were prize giveaways, a resident wellness nurse was on hand, and much more. The enthusiasm was infectious. Attendees participated in fitness demonstrations, attended social hour and enjoyed tours of the suites to get a feel for day to day living.

    Check out photos of the event on our Facebook page.
