An inactive lifestyle can cause older individuals to lose ground in four important areas: strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. But research suggests that exercise and physical activity can help older ones maintain or partly restore these four areas and that's the goal for Mansfield's Therapy and Activities Departments.
Each year one in every three adults, ages 65 or older, falls. Thankfully, falls aren’t an inevitable part of aging and many can be averted by taking action. So our Therapy staff at the Mansfield facility is working hard to develop a fall prevention program for our residents and staff.
Mansfield residents really got into coloring and filling Easter eggs this year in anticipation of our big hunt on Sat. April 4th. This year's Easter Egg Hunt was another hit, and was open to the public.
