The chances for suffering a heart attack, stroke or any heart disease increases significantly as we age—especially, according to the National Institute on Aging, in adults over the age of 65. However, there are a number of things you can do to lessen the risk of developing these cardiovascular issues—and, living in a senior living community can play a large role in assisting with that. Read on to see a few ways Heather Glen Senior Living can help your loved ones lead a healthier lifestyle.

Active lifestyle

Staying active in your daily life is an incredible way to reduce the risk of heart failure. At Heather Glen Senior Living, we offer our residents a number of activities that promote healthy living that everyone can enjoy. We make time each day for our residents to partake in a morning stretch to ensure that they are ready to take on the rest of the day. We also offer different daily exercise programs for them to join in whenever they wish. With a fitness area that all of our residents can take advantage of, plenty of beautiful walking trails throughout our community and a putting green available—we can assure you that your loved ones will have ample opportunities to stay active and healthy. 


Staying active is important, and it’s much easier to keep up with an active lifestyle if you have someone else helping you stay motivated. Staying socially active offers an enormous benefit for your loved ones to continue their healthy habits. At Heather Glen, the amenities we offer our residents offer the ideal opportunity to create lasting relationships with their neighbors. With the spa, fitness and activity areas, common areas and reading rooms scattered throughout the community, maintaining a social life and staying active comes naturally for our residents. 

Healthy eating habits

One of the best preventative measures your loved ones can do in order to reduce their chances of heart related diseases is maintaining healthy eating habits. Our staff at Heather Glen Senior Living understands how important keeping a healthy diet is for your older loved ones. That’s why our residents have three well-balanced meals prepared for them everyday with specialized meals made as required and healthy snacks available throughout the day—ensuring that your loved ones are receiving enough healthy nutrients needed to keep them feeling their best.

At Heather Glen Senior Living, we know how important it is for you to do everything you can to help our loved ones as they age—we’re here to help with that.
