Individual Exercise Programs
Mission Villa strives to support healthy individuals. Whenever a resident joins us we develop an Individual Exercise Program (ISP). We asses their physical abilities, such as their ability to walk, the strength of their hand eye coordination, and their levels of comfort when making certain movements. In this way we develop and implement an array of physical activities that serve their needs. Whether it's a walk around our facility, playing ball with other residents, dancing, or simply extending one's arms and legs, we strive to ensure that exercise takes place.
Leading research shows that "beyond the entertainment value, there is growing evidence that listening to music can also help stimulate seemingly lost memories and even maintain some cognitive function." This prompted Mission Villa to incorporate music in as many activities as possible. Moreover, throughout the week we invite local musicians to provide our residents with live entertainment. Whether it's a one man band, a singer extraordinaire, a delightfully accordion player, a church choir, or a pianist we ensure that each resident has the opportunity to immerse themselves in these musical experiences.
No matter one's age, a healthy meal is an essential part to the well being of an individual. At Mission Villa we pride ourselves in the food we serve. With the assistance of several consultants we have constructed menus for our residents that include fresh, nutrient-dense foods at each meal. Under the direction of our two chefs, Daniel and Luis, we prepare delicious balanced and healthful dishes using only the finest ingredients - always fresh and mostly organic. Moreover, we work closely with our chefs to develop entrees for our residents with diabetes, allergies, lactose intolerance, and other special dietary requirements. We are always open to accomadating each resident's dietary preferences, dislikes, requirements, and religious restrictions.
