Enhancing the Senior’s Beautiful Mind

Senior Living | 04/29/19


Mental and emotional well-being is essential to overall health. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) found that about 15 percent of all adults over the age of 60 experience a mental health disorder. These conditions can be prevented by promoting active and healthy aging through environments supporting well-being and encouraging a healthy lifestyle, which is what we strive for at Crestwood Manor.
