When an aging parent needs help with daily life or is suffering from degenerative memory loss such as Alzheimer’s disease, it’s more important than ever to keep some exercise in their routine. But finding the right options and feeling safe enough to carry them out can be tough on a family member and this is one of the reasons assisted living in Ventura, CA can offer great benefit. If you also work part-time or full-time outside the home, bringing your loved one enough safe opportunities for movement can seem impossible. Ventura Townehouse is a cheerful senior living center that offers fun classes for seniors. Here are some of the greatest benefits to these programs.
For people with memory loss, exercises that help in concentration and balance help bring them to the present. Tai chi classes help your loved one practice controlled breathing and careful slow body movements to help them retain muscle control. The experience of exercises led by a certified fitness teacher ensure safe movement for your loved one to improve their mental focus on their immediate surroundings.
Getting the body up and moving promotes circulation and stimulates the body. By keeping alert and following a routine, your loved one practices patterns of exercise steps that keep the brain learning.
Alzheimer’s is known for sundowning and restless wandering in the evenings. Taking part in a class at our community for assisted living helps the body relax and promotes a deeper night’s sleep. Going to bed and staying asleep is easier for people who exercise regularly.
Your loved one gets interaction with others and an endorphin boost from classes like our gentle yoga class. Group fitness helps energize us to carry out a routine and getting that movement helps the body’s serotonin kick in, giving us that calm, joyful mood we all can use.
For someone with dementia or a memory condition, the buildup and repetition of different moves lessens the confusion and frustration your loved one will encounter. Getting involved in activities requiring coordination like yoga poses keeps the neural networks in the brain active. Your loved one experiences success and gets help with modifications that bring them opportunity.

My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
