Priorities at Parc: Activities, Health and Wellness

seniors and healthy livingAt Parc Communities, the health and wellness of our residents is a top priority. To that end, we invite and encourage residents to stay active both mentally and physically through an array of daily activities and events. They participate in a wide variety of activities, from art lessons and  Wii® competitions to water aerobics and local excursions.

 It is also imperative for seniors to receive periodic check-ups to maintain overall good health. Wellness exams, and measures that should be completed on a routine basis, include blood pressure and cholesterol checks, weight management, colon cancer screenings, hearing evaluations, dental and vision screenings, and bone density tests. The friendly staff here at Parc Communities considers it a pleasure to see residents to and from their medical appointments.

Seniors: Using Technology and Tablets

Many people don’t usually think of seniors as quick adopters of the latest technologies. However, at Parc Communities many of our residents in Atlanta and Duluth, GA use a variety of technology in their everyday life. It’s not uncommon to see a resident in the library playing a game on their tablet or video chatting with grandchildren across the country.couple_using_ipad

Mobile technologies can help people stay in touch with others, provide entertainment, keep up with current events, and the list goes on. A recent article published in the New York Times discusses another potential benefit of seniors using tablets such as the iPad®: easier reading. Tablets have the capability to adjust type size, making text easier to see. According to the article, Dr. Daniel Roth, an eye specialist and clinical associate professor at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, states, “The No.1 complaint I get from older patients is that they love to read but can’t, and this really bothers them.”  With adjustable font, seniors are able to read material that they may no longer be able to see on print.

Parc residents also frequently participate in activities that combine technology and wellness. For instance, Parc Communities offer Learning L.A.B. which is a computer based brain fitness program that helps improve brain function and enhance performance in the way you receive, process, and record information.

Seniors Using Social Media- What are the Benefits?

With over 900 million users on Facebook, it should come as no surprise that many use social media to remain connected with one another. For Parc Communities residents staying connected with loved ones is of upmost importance. The great thing about social media is that families can keep up with each other’s lives despite the distance. Parc residents have siblings, children, and grandchildren spread across the country and with busy schedules it can be difficult to get everyone together at the same time. Google+ Hangouts provide a great social media outlet that allows families to catch up with one another face-to-face through web cams. Not only is social media a good way to connect seniors with family, but also old friends and colleagues.

Sites such as Facebook allow seniors to see pictures of their friends, family, co-workers, etc. as well as current events in their lives. Besides being able to see what their loved ones are up to, the next time they visit with each other they are already informed on what’s going on in their friends’lives. YouTube allows families to upload and share home videos quickly, giving seniors the opportunity to watch those special moments such as a grandbaby learning to walk.

Several of our residents have already jumped on the technology bandwagon and use iPads to browse pictures posted online and interact with others.  Parc Communities also have a computer center available for all residents to use.

If you are interested in viewing all of Parc’s amenities please call us today to schedule a tour! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on the latest information and news for seniors.
