Travel: The Ultimate Soul Food

Travel: The Ultimate Soul Food
Aug 11 2014

A program of Armchair Reminisce is for residents who want to take an adventure but not have to pack a suitcase for a week. Some of us could pack a workable suitcase with an hour’s notice and some of us would laboriously detail, fold, and monitor every item three times before it got into the suitcase. However you did it, it was the right way for you!

The Gifts of Music

The Gifts of Music
Jul 1 2014

Did you know that persons with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias can respond to music when little else reaches them deep inside? Alzheimer's can destroy the ability to recognize family members or remember events from one's own life, but musical memory somehow survives the ravages of the disease. Even in persons with advanced dementia, music can often reawaken personal memories and associations otherwise lost.

Raising The Flag And Its History

Raising The Flag And Its History
Jun 2 2014

Americans have a deep love and respect for the American flag and they know the price that was paid for freedom as many of them or their loved ones served in the military. Paying tribute to our amazing country as we recite the Pledge of Allegiance and closing a ceremony by singing the National Anthem bestows tender feelings and sincere appreciation of what that flag means to each one of us.

Healthy Living

Healthy Living
Apr 30 2014

Through research we have learned that some forms of dementia may be the result of factors that we control: our diet, our activity level, the amount of sleep we get, how we manage stress, socialization, and other life situations. Other factors we control are: smoking; how much alcohol we consume; what we eat; our sleep habits; prescription and over-the-counter drug use, and engaging in risky behaviors (i.e.: contact sports, climbing ladders, etc.) At Sagora Senior Living we strive to support overall wellness including promoting good brain fitness. Below, you will find several simple life-style changes that may help decrease your chances of developing a form of dementia and keep you healthier longer.

Creating art has long been known to have therapeutic benefits. Remarkable benefits are evident for older adults who participate in art therapy, socialization, brain fitness, and physical exercise programs. They have fewer doctor visits, use less medications, and have a lower rate of depression. The positive effects are amazing. The very act of creation is life-enhancing and nourishing for the spirit.

Quieting The Mind

Quieting The Mind
Feb 10 2014

One of the things that most people are striving for in one way or another is a quiet mind. Books, audios, and courses abound promising to teach techniques for achieving inner peace, reduced stress, less worry, and peace of mind. Yet, curiously, many of these programs seem to add to the number of should dos; ought to dos; or must dos that fill our already-noisy brains.

What can laughter do for you? It is a proven fact that laughing can soothe what ails you. From stimulating your heart, lungs and muscles, it can also increase endorphins (natural pain and stress relaxers) and even enhance your oxygen intake.

New Years Resolutions and Habits for a Healthy Lifetime

New Years Resolutions and Habits for a Healthy Lifetime
Jan 2 2014

Research is showing us that following a healthy lifestyle confers surprisingly large benefits to health - healthy behaviors have a far more beneficial effect than any medical treatment or procedure. Study results have shown that very few people follow a fully healthy lifestyle. When we keep hearing that exercise and a healthy diet are good for us, we may "tune out" and say "I know all about it". But sometimes repetition is the only way to break old habits and learn good behavior.
