Celebrate Active Aging Week at The Hemsworth Wellness Center
The Hemsworth Wellness Center, on the campus of Maple Knoll Village, encourages active aging not only this week but every week of the year. The Hemsworth Wellness Center is a Wellness Center that prides itself on enhancing the quality of life for older adults by increasing independence and the ability to perform activities of daily living. For years many people in the community believed that The Hemsworth Wellness Center was only open to Maple Knoll employees and residents. With the expansion and addition of recent programs it is becoming more and more evident that one of Maple Knoll’s best kept secrets is out!
Now over 400 members come to The Hemsworth Wellness Center daily to utilize the warm water pool, one-on-one training with a staff member, exercise classes or to simply use the numerous equipment options available to them. The warm water aquatics program with a 20×60 pool at Maple Knoll is a focal point of the Wellness Center. The personally guided warm water exercises give you the option of swimming or walking laps, floating or exercising on your own, or even participating in a guided class. Which ever you decided do not forget to save time for the whirlpool or sauna afterwards!
Another important part of the Wellness Center is the offering of various classes, both on land and water, which will help with improvement in range of motion, muscular strengthening, cardiovascular conditioning and endurance. The Hemsworth Wellness Center is also proud to now offer SilverSneakers to its members and those in the community! SilverSneakers is a program that works with your healthcare provider to provide a free membership to The Hemsworth Wellness Center. This is offered to certain individuals who are eligible for Medicare or to group retirees.
