    • increased mental capacity, disease prevention, Improved healing, Improved quality of life, Increased balance, Added longevity, Better mood, Improved immune function, Improved bone density, Mental health benefits.

  • We are all individuals and our exercise should be individualized. Our triggers and motivations are all slight different, and our motivations changes as we get older.

  • In starting an exercise routine, it is best to start off very small (beneath your expectations) and slowly work up beyond this point. The foundation you will build by doing this will be appreciated as you improve.
  • Four types of exercises:
    • Cardio, aka cardiovascular exercise, is anything that gets your heart rate up, makes you feel sweaty, and gets more oxygen pumping through your blood.
    • Strength training is any exercise that helps the different muscles in your body become stronger and more powerful.
    • Flexibility exercises are designed to increase your range of motion in your joints.
    • Balance exercises that strengthen the muscles that help keep you upright, including your legs and core.
  • Research is showing that it is especially important that older people engage in strength training. This is an essential part of any exercise routine older people.
  • Cardio should be done 3 to 4 times a week

IGA017: Co-housing Reinvents Community to Support Older Citizens

Summary:

What is co-housing? Wikipedia defines this as an "intentional community clustered around shared space". But that barely scratches the surface of the possibilities inherent in the concept. Today's guest, Cindy Turnquist, and Lee discuss this intriguing community concept and how it addresses the growing need for seniors to age-in-community. Cindy shares her experience and knowledge to educate us about the many aspects of co-housing that will most certainly appeal to a large portion of our older population.
