Tai Chi has been used for centuries for both physical and mental training. In fact, it is often described as “meditation in motion.” With its gentle movements and deep breathing techniques, Tai Chi offers a number of benefits for seniors. That’s why Holland Home offers classes numerous times a week.
If you have reservations about moving into a senior living community, you’re not alone. Take Lois V., a resident at Breton Woods of Holland Home, for instance. Her dad was an administrator of a senior living community in California, and her mom lived at Holland Home, so senior living has always been on her radar. Still, she was hesitant to make the move. She thought she was too young and that she wouldn’t find friends her age that were still active and had the same interests, ultimately fearing she’d grow old faster by living there.
As we age, maintaining a home becomes a bigger burden and the idea of spring cleaning can be overwhelming. Remember that not everything has to be done in one day or even in one week. Enlist the help of family and friends, prioritize getting rid of clutter, and you’ll soon see your space becoming cleaner and safer.
