Trends in Senior Housing

When I got into senior housing nearly 24 years ago the biggest feature that our residents got excited about was the fact that we had a new salad bar in the dining room. Oh, how things have changed!

Aegis is constantly looking at new programs to enhance the quality of life for our residents. Aegis of Bellevue will be opening in January 2010 with features that are cutting edge in senior housing.

We are putting in state of the art exercise equipment known as TechnoGym – the Ferrari of exercise equipment. They are easy on the joints, help with muscle development, tones your body and include multiple adjustments which make it a personalized machine. Aegis will have the first senior specific piece of equipment at Aegis of Bellevue.

We will also introduce the Brain Fitness by Dakim providing our residents the best in cognitive exercises. Research has shown that continued brain exercise aids in keeping the brain fit, no matter what your age. This highly entertaining program encourages long-term and repetitive use to delay the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

At Aegis of Bellevue we will provide a complete program of our innovative light therapy, supplements and outdoor exposure which will enable us to enhance the quality of life for our residents. By providing both dawn simulation and enhanced light exposure during early morning hours symptoms of seasonal affective disorder, depression as well as cognitive decline in dementia and Alzheimer’s residents can be diminished.

We have come a long way since the salad bar. I’m excited to see what is next.
