Maintaining An Active Lifestyle at Westminster Place

Being active as we age has a plethora of health benefits, including supporting brain function and preserving mobility. In a recent study from Rush University Medical Center, MRI brain scans of 150 people in their eighties determined that those who were most active had no problems with mobility despite having brain damage as a natural result of aging.

One of the benefits of independent living communities like Westminster Place are the countless activities available for our residents, from strength conditioning to art classes. See some of what we have to offer here:
