Wellness & Fitness
A lifestyle of wellness, supported by award-winning healthcare
The Lasell Village Wellness Center serves as a drop-in clinic, providing the security of convenient on-site healthcare and ensuring good health and vibrancy for residents. Staffed by licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants, the Center is available to residents for any health-related questions or concerns. Residents may also call for an at-home visit, if necessary. The Center offers a full complement of services:
- Nursing consultation
- Health screening and monitoring
- Education and individualized health solutions
- Laboratory services
- Blood pressure and flu clinics
- Home care services and consultation
- Therapeutic massage
Consultations are available with health professionals, including a dentist, physical therapist, podiatrist, audiologist, psychiatrist and dermatologist.
- Each resident receives a customized workout program based on his or her medical history, physical abilities and personal fitness goals. Programs are designed to maximize functional strength and improve aerobic capacity.
- Exercise programs are progressively adjusted over time based on how an individual’s body responds to the total workout volume. Factors such as frequency and intensity of exercise collectively play a role in determining an individual’s proper progression.
- Residents are advised by a certified personal trainer as to specific regimes they can perform on their own to maximize daily function. These regimes may include stretches to facilitate circulation, improve the range-of-motion in joints and reduce muscle cramping.
Because of the wonderful fitness classes and activities, and cultural programs offered at Lasell Village, residents often find that they rarely miss a thing due to health issues.
