Today, Joe Robach attended an event titled “ 50 & fit” for seniors at Beatrice Place in the Town of Greece. The purpose of the event today was to raise awareness of the many benefits of exercising for individuals over the age of 50. To celebrate today, Beatrice Place had a special program of Zumba Gold for the residents. Beatrice Place is located at 600 Denise Road in The Town of Greece. It is actually the site of the former Our Lady of Mercy Church.
Beatrice Place opened its doors in September 2013 as a Neighborhood Program site for residents and community members. Currently, there are73 one and two bedroom apartments on two floors, as well as a chapel, café, fitness area, and community space. Neighborhood Program Membership is free for residents; nominal fee of $60/year for community members. In September 2013, Joe Robach attended the grand opening and got to experience the many wonderful features geared towards seniors. The goal of Beatrice Place is to allow residents to “are in place.” This means allowing seniors to age gracefully in the comfort of their own apartment, as opposed to more “hands on” skilled nursing. Beatrice Place has had a steady flow of residence coming to live in the apartments.

The goal of today’s event was to demonstrate the benefits of exercise, regardless of age. Joe Robach joined the many seniors in the class for Zumba Gold. Joe Robach feels the main objective of exercising for seniors is longevity. Seniors want to stay in their homes as long as possible as they age. Exercising on a regular basis will allow seniors to extend their lives within their homes. It will also make them more mobile and allow them to accomplish ever day tasks with ease.
