You’ve lived a fulfilling life and you're ready to take the next steps to improve your longevity even more. You’ve heard doctors or others talk about the importance of self care, but let’s face it, it’s not easy to know what to do or how to implement such a program for yourself or a loved one. You’re willing to learn and practice better choices but where do you start? You just need help and support to get started and maintain such a lifestyle.
This program has been specifically created to support individuals that are at risk or in early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease along with one caregiver. This includes those that have a focus on prevention and have related concerns such as concussions, and other contributing factors which may impact their longevity. As well as a number of days of in-house intensive treatment, several simple techniques will be shared for you and your caregivers to take home.
During these 7-days you will have the opportunity to learn, practice and receive these holistic resources for longevity while having the exclusive use of an executive appointed hot springs near one of the most breathtaking areas in the US.
Because we are focused on each individual, this program will allow for only 6 clients with one caregiver accompanying each person. However, It is not necessary to have a caregiver in attendance as the program is also designed for those to come on their own. This is a small group program designed to fulfill a number of goals:
- Promote overall longevity and wellbeing
- Prevent memory issues from occurring before they arrive.
- A very dedicated treatment and training program to help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
What to expect:
Each client and caregiver will receive specialized information about exercise, nutrition and meditation during the 7-day retreat. Each client receives CranioSacral therapy every day while caregivers are supported as a group on lifestyle planning and ideas on how to bring this healthier lifestyle home. Caregivers can also expect to receive CranioSacral treatments during the week.
