As modern technology and health advances continue to extend average life expectancy across the world, many find themselves faced with new challenges as they age. With that in mind, now more than ever we’ve seen individuals, especially baby boomers approaching retirement age, searching for ways to ensure they not only live a long life, but age well. We can learn a lot about this concept from our Mediterranean friends in Greece and the coastal areas of Italy and Spain. The following tips are founded on researcher’s conclusions about the “Blue Zones,” where the largest populations of people live to a healthy 100 years or more. Campo Felice is proud to offer a healthy lifestyle for their residents, where they can thrive and live their best lives every day.
#1: Community and Socialization
It’s important to have a strong social network of people to enjoy life with you. At Campo Felice, residents have the best of all worlds – a luxurious home, and close, stimulating relationships with their fellow-residents. Campo Felice’s Lifestyle Manager also plans numerous social events designed to keep our resident connected throughout the year.
Today’s seniors want the freedom to live the life they want in a community that’s safe, comfortable, engaging, and, most of all, supportive. Living alongside like-minded individuals that want the best location, amenities, and convenience, it’s easy to build close bonds and grow lasting relationships. Most seniors prefer to live in a community with others around their age for social engagement, high-end lifestyle amenities, a great location and top-notch safety and security.
#2 Diet and Nutrition
Seniors that live long, healthy lives, usually eat well-balanced, nutrient-dense meals. Each day at Campo Felice, restaurant-style, chef-prepared meals are made with fresh vegetables and fruit, and include many options such as vegetarian and Mediterranean-inspired, high-quality ingredients. The chef never uses any frozen produce or pre-packaged foods. It’s all shome-made, and the residents rave over the options. The Lifestyle Manager and the Chef often throw themed dinner parties for residents, such as Coastal Seafood Night and Holiday parties. These always include unique foods and recipes, tried and true favorites and delectable cocktails and wine.
Staying active is essential for all ages, but it’s even more important to improve circulation, increase oxygen intake, build muscle strength, and exercise the body and brain as we age. Whether you take a swim in the sparkling pool, enjoy a brisk walk around the terrace or grounds or join one of the many group exercise classes, there is always a way at Campo Felice to incorporate a good workout or some form of gentle movement into your day’s activities. The Fitness Instructor Manager is always finding ways to make exercise fun, and her classes are packed. There is also a resident that teaches a fun senior Zumba Gold class. While many residents meet outside for fresh air and activities, there is also a state-of-the-art indoor fitness center with multiple machines and free weights.
Having a sense of belonging and purpose is essential. When it comes to living at Campo Felice, residents feel at home the moment they walk through the doors. Bid your worries good-bye and make carefree your new favorite word at Campo Felice!
