Fitness Regimens, Well Beyond Shuffleboard
Staying fit is key to aging healthily, and the Vitality 360 program run by Kendal at Hanover and Orchard Cover in Canton, Massachusetts is using a computerized approach to insuring their seniors remain active. The program uses online assessment tools to track the health of their residents, which informs their individualized coaching, appropriate goal-setting and follow-up. This information is then entered into a national database used to help all older adults set goals and measure their progress against the standard of someone their age.
