Staying active is essential for everyone, regardless of age. It improves physical and mental health, boosts energy levels, and enhances overall well-being. 

At Castle Country Assisted Living, nestled in the beautiful towns of Castle Rock and Parker, Colo., we prioritize promoting physical activity for our residents.

We understand that some exercises may seem challenging, but even small steps can make a big difference. Here are some simple ways our residents can stay active and enjoy the benefits of movement:

Embrace Daily Activities:

  • Walk and Talk: Instead of using the phone or email, schedule regular walks with friends or family around our beautiful grounds. Enjoy the fresh air, scenic views, and engaging conversations.
  • Gardening: Whether tending to a small potted plant or participating in our community garden, gardening is a fun and therapeutic way to stay active and enjoy the outdoors.

Join Our Fun and Engaging Activities:

  • Chair Yoga: This gentle exercise program focuses on stretches, balance poses, and breathing exercises, all done while seated, improving flexibility, strength, and coordination.
  • Going for Walks: Explore the charming streets of Castle Rock or enjoy leisurely walks around our walking paths.
  • Gardening: With spring just around the corner, many of our residents enjoy getting their hands dirty out in the sun. Bending, lifting, and digging help keep their bodies active.

  • Individualized Exercise Plans: We work with residents and their families to develop personalized exercise routines based on fitness levels, abilities, and preferences.
  • Adaptive Equipment: We provide various adaptive equipment, such as exercise bands, resistance balls, and grab bars, to ensure everyone can safely participate in activities.
