PRESCOTT – Step On It! Is a senior wellness program designed to keep residents active while working to reduce fall risk. Alta Vista Senior Living Community and Granite Mountain Home Health and Hospice have partnered together to implement this wellness program.
Alta Vista’s residents and employees were originally doing a virtual walk to Washington D.C. but they blew that goal out of the water and did that in just a few weeks, so they wanted to create a bigger challenge for themselves and decided to walk around the world with the first stop being Florence, Italy! They won prizes and enjoyed “pranzo” upon arriving in Italy! (which means lunch in Italian) E stato un grande momento! (it was a great time)
Studies show that those who move more are able to see more, do more, and flat out enjoy life more. This program keeps everyone moving, grooving, and remaining as independent as possible.
Wellness is important to Alta Vista and so they were very excited when Granite Mountain Home Health and Hospice presented this program to them. Alta Vista is located at 916 Canterbury Lane in Prescott. For more information, please call 928-772-6000.
