A New Approach to Your Health and Well-being
Still Waters – Eastgate is pleased to offer optional Personal Wellness services for guests who attend the Center. This program is designed to combine the best of our socially stimulating adult day environment with individualized care – all at a very affordable price.
Each 20-30 minute Personal Wellness session is planned based on the individual’s needs, existing conditions, and interests. Sessions are held at the Center with a Center staff person working closely to offer encouragement, motivation, and safety. Personal Wellness sessions can be used to gain strength and mobility, to improve mood, or to help reach goals set by your health care provider. Many Personal Wellness participants have completed a program of Physical or Occupational Therapy and want to avoid “losing ground” after therapy ends. Others just want to be more active so they can enjoy more independence.

Resistance exercises ( hand weights or elastic bands)
Walking inside the facility
Outdoor nature walk – weather permitting
