We offer four levels of exercise programs. Safety is our #1 goal, so each resident’s fitness level (indicated through testing conducted by certified fitness trainers) determines the exercises appropriate for that resident.

Explanation of Levels:

  • Level 1 – Skilled Nursing & Memory Care: These gentle exercises are for residents with the most limited mobility. Generally Level 1 Exercises are most appropriate for those with memory loss or dementia, or who are in wheelchairs or use walkers with assistance. All Level 1 Exercises are done while seated.
  • Level 2 – Memory Care & Assisted Living: Residents who are able to stand without assistance can easily participate in Level 2 Exercises. These low-impact exercises are mostly seated, and are fine for residents with some memory loss, and those in wheelchairs or using walkers.
  • Level 3 – Memory Care & Assisted Living: Residents who can walk on their own, and who have good balance enjoy Level 3 Exercises, which mainly involve standing exercises using bands.
  • Level 4 – Independent Living & 55+: Level 4 Exercises are best for only those residents who are in elite health, with perhaps light reliance on a walker, or who experience some memory loss. Most Level 4 Exercises involve bands, standing, balance and working with a partner.
