About The Wellness Plus Program


Your first step to wellness is a professional screening with your physical therapist, who assesses your needs and designs a customized program just for you. This is not a case of “one size fits all.” Every person begins The Wellness Plus Program at a different point in their journey. We help you set manageable goals so that over time, you become stronger, leaner, and more flexible.

Through The Wellness Plus Program, you’ll work with our senior strength trainer 2-3 times a week for a 30-45 minute training session. Depending on your needs, The Wellness Program may involve:

  • Resistive Bands
  • Ankle Weights
  • Hand Weights
  • Stationary Bike/Treadmill
  • Stretching/Flexibility Exercises
  • Balance Activities
  • Pneumatic Resistive Exercise Equipment
  • Theraball Activities

 

Activities at Traditions of Hanover


There are so many activities to choose from that now I have to look at the monthly schedule to see if Mom might be in her apartment before I call her on the phone. This was the BEST decision our 91 year old Mom could have made. She is physically stronger and having the time of her life!

 

Complimentary Classes Offered To Traditions of Hanover Residents


Circuit Training: A fun, fast-paced exercise class set to music. Participants rotate between upper and lower body exercises for one minute intervals. An instructor will help guide you through each class. Designed to “go at your own pace”, so appropriate for all levels.

Flexercise: This group class is a great way to stretch and strengthen all the muscles in your body, from head to toe. Most exercises are in the seated position and use stretch bands and other equipment provided to you. The instructor can help you modify the program to meet your needs.

Tai Chi: Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from Qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. According to some records, Tai Chi dates back as far as 2,500 years. It involves a series of slow, rhythmic, and meditative body movements designed to enhance relaxation, inner calm, and peace.

Yoga: Yoga is a gentle exercise with slow and smooth movements. The focus is on holding the poses and integrating your breathing into the movement. This class is a great way to stretch, work your muscles, get in touch with your body, relax, and decrease stress.
