Healthy aging is our goal at Harrogate and for good reason: The MacArthur Foundation Study on Aging claims that 70% of how we age is determined by our lifestyle, while only 30% is determined by genetics.
Living the 8
To help you age happier and healthier, we have Living the 8, something you’ll find only at Harrogate. This proprietary program brings together eight dimensions of wellness to enrich your days and help you live a happier, well-balanced life. It’s wellness with the whole person in mind.
Every Dimension Is Covered.
Creating more good days, maintaining a healthy sense of optimism, and fostering a strong sense of kinship with others.
Embracing the pride of the community, promoting a healthy personal atmosphere.
Detecting and managing issues properly before they become problems; preventing illness and disease for healthier, happier, and longer lives.
Reminding ourselves we’re never too old to learn something new; keeping the brain stimulated, challenged, and engaged.
Making positive lifestyle choices to benefit the body inside and out, staying active, and establishing and maintaining a healthy diet.
Interacting with others and the world around us; growing our perspectives, our opportunities, and our friendships.
Connecting with our own personal beliefs, whatever they may be; making sense of the everyday; finding peace in difficult times.
Maintaining a sense of identity and purpose through volunteerism or employment after retirement, serving, and sharing our talents and skills.
