A New Approach to Successful Aging in Glendale, Arizona
At The Center for Modern Aging, we feel ‘Successful Aging’ can be summed up simply by making sure someone, no matter what their age, has a sense of purpose and direction.
For twenty years, Steve Heller has been the guru to amateur and professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, PGA, LPGA, and MLB. They chose him based on his extensive knowledge of exercise physiology in relation to sports-specific training and post rehabilitation conditioning. He co-created Fore-Max Training at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Fore-Max was named one of the top four vacation workout programs in the world.
You have an entirely new approach to health and wellness for older adults which you call “Successful Aging.” Can you explain what that means?
At The Center for Modern Aging, we feel ‘Successful Aging’ can be summed up simply by making sure someone, no matter what their age, has a sense of purpose and direction. If we can provide our seniors with purpose, passion, and meaning in their lives then we will put them in the best possible scenario of aging successfully. As an organization we maintain our focus on helping our residents achieve a sense of fulfillment in many key areas of their lives: physically, mentally, socially, spiritually and emotionally.
So you are developing a new approach for senior living?
We decided we had to change the narrative and drop the words, senior living. Older generations don’t want to feel dismissed to live a monotonous life at a senior citizen facility. The Center for Modern Aging is more than a Wellness Center, it is a shift in a mindset. We focus on prioritizing the needs and desires of the residents, emphasizing wellness at every turn. We're beta-testing the program now,and we're launching it soon.
