500 N St SW
Washington, DC 20024
Health and Wellness
Due to severe weather, this event has been rescheduled to April 11.
The Balanced Care Method™is based on studies of the extraordinarily long-lived elders living in the islands of Okinawa, Japan. Life spans of over 100 years are not unusual in Okinawa. More important, people in their 70s, 80s and beyond enjoy incredible good health and independence despite their years. Mary Mitchell will share how The Balanced Care Method promotes the lifestyle factors central to these centenarian’s healthy longevity. It is a philosophy that can be summed up in two words: moderation and variety.
Mind Fit. Just like the body, the brain can show signs of aging over time. While this is a natural result of growing older, there are positive lifestyle changes you can make to keep your mind sharper for longer. Join Tim Hawk for a fun and informative sample from Home Care Assistance's six-part Mind Fit series. In this seminar, you will learn about proactive ways to enhance cognitive functioning, including fun group activities used in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method, a science-based cognitive stimulation program created by Home Care Assistance.
Social Isolation is an emerging problem among the senior population affecting more than 8 million adults. This may be due to a number of factors such as increased likelihood of living alone, death of family members or friends, retirement or poor health. Mary Mitchell will explain how having an awareness and being able to identify signs of isolation are the first steps in taking actions to assist those in need.
Pet Ownership. Rachel Waddick, Executive Director of The Pawtricity™ Foundation, will discuss how pet ownership provides mental, physical, and emotional benefits to an individual and may contribute to the overall wellness of a community when integrated responsibly. In addition to pets, Rachel will also discuss the benefits of keeping small animals, reptiles, and fish.
