As part of the independent living environment, residents have planned individualized activities based on a personalized wellness profile prepared with the help of a registered nurse. These personalized routines are carried out at the Wellness Center under close supervision and revised every six months. This is a community where residents experience the difference a healthy mind, body and spirit can make.

The Advantages of a Fitness Pool

The Village of Bedford Walk features a hydrotherapy room with a SwimEx hydrotherapy pool and a SwimEx hot plunge pool.  The SwimEx 1000 T aquatic pool is the largest, most versatile fitness and therapy pool in the SwimEx professional line of pools.  The advanced SwimEx water current is positioned on one side of the pool. It is wide enough for side-by-side swimming or resistance workouts. On the other side of the pool, there is still water. This area provides ample space for aquatic therapy, exercise workouts and group classes.

Warm water works wonders on sore limbs and joints. It reduces pain, swelling, and facilitates muscle recovery. The beauty of SwimEx hot plunge pools are their insulated fiberglass shells. They keep consistent temperatures with minimal maintenance and lower heating costs.
