Welcome to Krista's Korner

Our Senior Living Blog

As a fitness enthusiast and an extremely upbeat individual, Emily Lopez has been an amazing asset to St. Camillus as the Wellness Coordinator for our Life Plan Community. Emily graduated from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee with a degree in Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. While she was in school, Emily found a love for body mechanics and working with individuals to achieve their fitness goals. As the Wellness Coordinator, she is able to do one-on-one personal training sessions with our residents and tailor a plan that is customized to each person’s abilities and goals.

 

Emily also has a passion for group fitness, offering multiple classes for San Camillo residents on a weekly basis. Her group classes consist of:

  • Steady Steps: This is a fitness class that utilizes Thera-bands and balance exercises to improve core and overall strength.
  • Hustle and Muscle: This is a full-body workout. This class is a hybrid of strength training and cardio exercises to build cardiovascular strength and endurance.

 

When asked what her favorite aspect of her job was, Emily responded with “I get to have a part in helping to improve our residents’ lives.   I thoroughly enjoy working with our residents and helping them to succeed.” Emily also discussed working with residents who have been discharged from physical or occupational therapy that may need some additional support.   Residents can benefit from strengthening exercises to be successfully independent. Emily works closely with the residents’ care team to ensure the resident receives the proper fitness and care plan post therapy.

 

In addition to personal training services offered by Emily, St. Camillus strives to provide peace of mind to seniors in our Life Plan Community and in the surrounding communities by offering a full continuum of home health services. Our home health services include: home health care, supportive services, geriatric care management, health and rehabilitation, palliative, and hospice care. If you would like additional information about our services, please call 414-258-2418.
