What’s Happened at Bethany Rehabilitation
Staying active is important at any stage of life, but it is an even more crucial part of overall health as we age. Through natural physical changes that come with age, living a different pace of life and perhaps dealing with new health concerns, staying active can also be more difficult during our golden years. However, it is worth the effort to stay active. Physically active seniors have a decreased risk of cancers, type 2 diabetes and strokes, as well as depression and dementia.
At Bethany Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, staying active is a priority. We create enjoyable and stress-free activities and programs for residents to help them stay active, social and healthy.
What’s Happened at Bethany Rehab
In February, staff and residents at Bethany Rehab came together to honor and celebrate a resident who was marking a very special birthday! At 105 years old, Evelyn had a great time at her party and thanked all her neighbors for sharing the day with her. With the arrival of some spring weather, the Bethany gardening club kicked off their season on March 1st. This year, they are growing basil, cherry tomatoes and marigolds! As the weather gets warmer, the club will transfer the plants to larger pots outside in the courtyard for everyone to enjoy. Also in March, residents and staff at Bethany celebrated Fat Tuesday! To inspire a festive spirit for the holiday, residents shared their guilty pleasures and everyone shared some laughs.
