My husband and I selected Glenbrooke as our home of choice to enhance our retirement lifestyle, but never thought about what Glenbrooke would offer if either of us passed away. After his passing, our children asked me to move closer to them. Even with my limited vision, I am able to maintain an independent, active, vibrant and fulfilling lifestyle. The staff is always available to meet any wants or needs that I may have, and they always do it with a smile and a hug.
Promoting Men's Health this Father's Day Back
It is almost Father’s Day so let’s talk about dad. Is he a man who can tell any story? Is he a handyman or gearhead? Can he pull any joke out of his sleeve to make you laugh? No matter who your father figure is, Dad’s are important to our life. That is why promoting men’s health is also important, especially for your aging father. Here are some specific tips to improve men’s health:
Manage stress. Take time everyday to complete activities that bring you joy, but don’t overload your tasks. Maintaining a positive mental attitude is also important to managing stress. At Glenbrooke at Palm Bay, things such as meditating, yoga, and brief walks can help clear your mind and balance your mental state. Finally, it is recommended to sleep for 7-9 hours, so get plenty of rest each night to replenish your body with energy.
Get regular check-ups and screenings. Men have unique healthcare needs. Regular check-ups and health screenings not only protect your health, they also help your doctor understand your overall health. At Glenbrooke at Palm Bay, our on-site nursing staff helps with needs such as blood pressure monitoring and scheduling for doctor visits. As you age, keeping an eye on your health is important to maintaining an able lifestyle.
Stay active. Movement and exercise are crucial to improving your health. Developing personalized fitness plans and goals gets your blood pumping, activates your muscles, and stimulates your mind. The fitness and wellness center at Glenbrooke at Palm Bay has everything you need to fulfill your fitness journey.
To all the extraordinary Dads, we thank you for showing up and inspiring us all throughout life. We encourage you to keep your health at par so you never have to miss out on this amazing life in Palm Bay, Florida. Happy Father’s Day. You are truly a superhero.
