It is no secret that even people of a more advanced age often keep a fairly high degree of their physical activity. And only after around age 80 in humans, begins a period of so-called involutional reorganization. And the main goal the staff at King David Community Center set for their elderly customers is the gradual preparation for this aging period. One of the main conditions of a healthy life in old age is regular physical activity, a forming of habit to doing gymnastic exercises for instance, with the main goal being to maintain the skeletal musculature in a given parameter of age norms.
All this is well-known to the skilled professionals at the Community Center; but in addition to navigating the standard rules of physical activity for people of a certain age, our trainers also take an individual approach with each person they work with, taking in to account their personal medical conditions and the recommendations of their physician.
In the middle of their day at King David Community Center, our clients are bused to a physiotherapy department, which is also a branch of the Community Center, where they engage in physical activity and a variety of special procedures. And never mind if your strength is not where it used to be, and not every physical activity is successful; under the guidance of one of our experienced instructors, positive results are still guaranteed to everyone. Just note that no procedures or physical activities are mandatory, and the Center does not impose any physical activity on its visitors, only recommends it, referring to physicians' recommendations based on medical condition, age, and medical history. Because of this care and individual attention, negative results simply do no happen at our Community Center.
All exercises are strictly monitored for the time and pace of activity for each individual customer. For instance, if a newcomer to the King David Community Center has long quit a routine of regular physical activity, then a special initial program is implemented to gradually increase their workload.
