Here’s to Life. . .

Here’s to Life. . . What if you—or an older person in your life—could start living better now, and actually slow or reverse the usual decline of aging? It’s possible, right here in Nevada County. Atria Grass Valley has created an environment where it’s easier to make healthy choices. The community works to cultivate a culture of well-being by providing residents daily opportunities for fitness, connection, nutrition and goal-setting—four key lifestyle choices shown to contribute to successful aging. Atria calls this wholeperson approach to health and wellness Better This Year. According to research conducted by Dr. Henry Lodge, coauthor of The New York Times best-seller Younger Next Year: The New Science of Aging, a surprising 70 percent of how successfully we age is determined by four key lifestyle choices: Exercise: Exercise triggers the body’s natural repair processes and the benefits are dramatic, so the older you are, the more important it is to keep moving. Atria offers residents access to senior-friendly fitness equipment and at least two instructor-led exercise opportunities every day, 365 days a year. Connection: People who are part of a caring community live longer and have less stress than those who are isolated and lonely. Atria provides a physically connected environment and daily social opportunities, which help residents build and maintain close relationships with peers and staff. Nutrition: Eating well is important to staying healthy longer, so consistent access to nourishing, appetizing food is key. Atria residents choose from at least 30 nutritious, freshly prepared menu options every day, including noconcentrated-sweets and no-salt-added selections. Goals: Setting short- and long-term goals to challenge oneself provides healthy motivation and promotes a sense of purpose. Atria works with residents to identify personal goals via their Resident Discovery Survey, and supports their achievements through a signature events program, Engage Life®. Atria believes where you live can determine how well you live. With discreet 24-hour support, engaging social events and a culture centered around overall well-being, Atria Grass Valley is home to fascinating people including artists, teachers, engineers, homemakers and business leaders who’ve discovered life can be better with good neighbors nearby. With individual cottage homes and spacious apartments, Atria Grass Valley offers older adults independent living, assisted living and memory care services, comfortable amenities, 24-hour staff and fresh, flavorful dining experiences that would impress even the most discerning palates.
