Senior Living, Memory Care, Assisted Living, Social Wellness
Here at Fieldstone Communities, we know that one of the biggest needs in senior living today is finding ways for residents to stay connected and engaged with family members. Studies show that family engagement can have a direct impact on the long-term health of seniors in residential living communities.

Staying Fit as You Age
Benefits of Exercise for Seniors
We all know that we need to exercise to stay healthy. And for seniors, the benefits of exercise are particularly significant. You don’t have to be a marathon runner or bodybuilder to exercise—there are many types of exercise that fit all abilities. A little bit of exercise will reward you with results beyond just toned muscles.
Vera was one of the first residents to secure her spot here before we opened, and she was our very first resident to move in. And boy, are we glad she did! Vera has already added so much joy and love to our community. She has made some new friends and reunited with some old from her previous community. You can usually find her walking the halls or in the cafe spreading laughs and smiles with her good friend Barbara. We all look forward to seeing Vera every single day.
Health, Aging, Alzheimer's
Did you know that a little sunshine each day can do more than just boost your mood? Even a few minutes of sun exposure a day can help increase your levels of vitamin D, which has been known to help fight off osteoporosis, certain types of cancer, and depression. As we age, our body’s ability to make vitamin D lessens—that’s why vitamin D deficiency is common among seniors.
