Wellness Programs for Seniors in the Chicago Area
Freedom Home Care is proud to host wellness programs for seniors around the North Shore and Chicago area. Our Wellness Center at the Lodge of Northbrook brings our holistic and individualized approach to private care to the residents of the Lodge. Services offered at Wellness Center include:
• Monthly Health and Wellness Speakers and Seminars
• In-home consultations by Medical Professionals
• Access to Caregivers, CNA’s and RN’s
• Welcome Home / Move-In Program
Additionally, our Sit and be Fit program has grown in popularity over the last several years, and is a fun and energetic, yet easy-to-do class where all activities and movements are done sitting down. The Sit and be Fit program is geared at muscle toning, and is also designed to improve mobility, decrease pain and help control blood pressure.
