Holy Angels’ growing emphasis on physical fitness is addressing the overall health outcomes of the entire Holy Angels community. Our wellness team consistently challenges our clients and employees to spend more time engaging in healthy activities. A weekly group exercise schedule is followed, allowing each client to enjoy activities with their fellow participants, as well as have dedicated time with our exercise physiologist. Routines are based on individual goals and abilities. As we help our clients develop more active lifestyles, we have invested in specialized equipment to increase strength, mobility, and dexterity in a manner that protects the safety and well-being of both participants and staff. This specialized equipment was made possible by generous donations from local and out-of-state supporters. In addition to dedicated gym time, our clients enjoy activities such as pilates, yoga, bocce ball, basketball, and other forms of group exercise and games that support healthy lifestyles.
“Health and Exercise have an impact on the total wellbeing of a person. Although we sometimes look at fitness as something extra someone gets to participate in,” Corrie said. “The actuality is that living a healthy lifestyle has an effect on a person physically, mentally, and emotionally. My goal at Holy Angels is for our residents to have the opportunity to enjoy their best lives both physically and mentally. Everyone may not be able to do everything, but everyone can do something. It’s amazing watching each resident find their healthy lifestyle fit and succeed at conquering their individual goals.” – Corrie Hill, MS; Holy Angels’ Wellness Coordinator
