Incorporate Physical Therapy to Stay Healthy

As we know, being active keeps the body fit and the mind alert and this can help prevent, or slow, any decline and allow seniors to stay active and independent longer. That is why Orchard Glen now provides Physical Therapy services right in their community. Dr. Jamie L. Phelan, PT, MS of Weston/Paxxon Senior Rehab Services, PLLC treats patients five days a week in her office on the second floor inside the fitness room. Jamie is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and the Senior Therapist for Weston/Paxxon’s Western New York clinics.

As an Emeritus Senior Living community and well-known for their family being committed to yours, Orchard Glen is an active community offering daily exercise class, walking groups and a variety of arts and crafts. They continue to focus on being a healthier community by incorporating events like these in their monthly activities calendar as well as providing healthy chef prepared meals every day and using the freshest ingredients available including herbs from their resident herb garden. Don’t be left out—come and participate to join in the fun and start living the 2012 New Year, New You today!
