How Seniors Get Moving! Assisted Living and Memory Care in Arizona

Staying physically active is important for everyone and it becomes especially important to keep moving as we age. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Adults aged 65 and older need at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity activity such as brisk walking. Or they need 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity activity such as hiking, jogging, or running.” The CDC also stresses the importance of incorporating resistance training and balance activities.

That may seem like a lot, but breaking it down into smaller 10-minute intervals a few times a day makes this a more manageable goal. For example, going for a walk for 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Prioritizing physical activity helps prevent injury and chronic conditions, and supports a healthy lifestyle. This holds particularly true for seniors residing in senior living care communities.
