Are you a Senior Activities Coordinator? Our unique programs have been serving the Independent, assisted and memory care communities in the greater Dallas area, weekly since 2003. Our reputation for delivering a quality service with highly skilled instructors is unprecedented in the DFW area. We require our instructors to continually update their training, pass a national background check, hold a current CPR / AED certification and maintain a 2 million dollar personal liability policy.
Please feel free to contact the activities coordinator at any of the communities listed in our schedule for a direct, professional reference.
Under development since 1994, the Smiling Heart Qigong Program provides informative, stimulating and fun, standing and seated group training for our most mature clients. Our Instructors specialize in working with independent, assisted and memory care patients with kindness, respect, patience, compassion and (of course) a smiling heart.
Smiling Heart Qigong combines posture, breathing, gentle movements with skilled instructor education to deliver:
Our Independent Living Program combines seated core strengthening with concentration exercises that stimulate mental acuity, improved coordination and deep breathing. When appropriate we add training techniques to improve posture, balance and walking. Our students consistently become more stable and confident in their mobility while reducing overall pain.
Our Assisted Living Program is designed to help support the AL Community in gentle core strengthening and balance training with an emphasis on fall prevention. Our experience in both Eastern and Western Therapy modalities allows us to provide a unique training environment that is both strengthening to the body and mind while stimulating smiling hearts and promoting a strong, supportive, community spirit.
Our Memory Care Program takes into consideration the delicate nature of this population. Careful, respectful words are chosen when teaching the techniques as well as keeping the training simple and playful. Our goal is to provide a safe, playful environment which stimulates the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of participants.
