    Looking Back: May
     
    On May 22nd, Woodland Terrace of New Palestine put on a vehicle parade for the residents to celebrate the Indy 500. Many business owners in town and Woodland Terrace partners drove vehicles around the front of the building showing off sports cars, hotrods and more! The New Palestine High School Seniors who work at Woodland Terrace were the parade princesses dressed up in their prom gowns. Also, one resident was honored as the Grand Marshall of the parade who just celebrated her 100th birthday. Thank you to all the business sponsors and those who participated in the event. In spirit of the 500 race, residents competed in "The Greatest Spectacle in Senior Living Race," a race held in the dining room. Previously in the week, residents rolled dice to determine the number of spaces their cars moved around the track. There were helpers from the dining staff who moved the cars around the track according to the numbers rolled. It was so fun and there were vehicle sponsors – Business owners from town and some Justus Partners. A replay of the race can be seen on the Woodland Terrrace of New Palestine Facebook Page or Live Enrichment YouTube Channel. Congrats to the winner!
     
    Constantly, we review Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines as they are updated. Then, each weekday, we host a virtual meeting with community leaders to discuss, review and implement any resulting policy and procedure changes to ensure a timely response. This has been a challenging and rapidly evolving situation and we want to update you on some of the recent changes. Click here to view these updates.

    According to Jennifer Jakobi, professor in the School of Health and Exercise Sciences, inactivity and social isolation are key contributors to age-related frailty. A recent study from Jakobi shows that strength training with free-weights that progresses in intensity is effective in combating declining health often observed with adult aging.
