Walk With Ease Program

St. Camillus Life Plan Community shares the importance of wellness through the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk with Ease walking program.

St. Camillus Life Plan Community shares the importance of wellness through the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk with Ease walking program.

Led by St. Camillus’ Revitalize Wellness Nurse, the Walk with Ease program meets twice per week over 9 weeks.  Each session includes: a pre-walk discussion, warm up exercise, 10-30 minute walk, cool down and wrap up remarks.  The Walk with Ease program has been proven to reduce arthritis pain and discomfort, increase balance and strength, improve overall health and build confidence to be physically active.

Residents were surveyed after their completion of the program and shared their gratitude and excitement for their newfound love of walking.

“The last time we walked, we were surprised by the steps we put on!  I am glad to have had this opportunity.” - St.Camillus resident

After the completion of a successful round of Walk with Ease, St. Camillus Independent Living has decided to start a “Walk to Bethlehem” contest beginning December 1st.  The goal is to encourage residents to find time to exercise and accumulate steps in a variety of ways in collaboration with St. Camillus staff.  Those who accrue the most steps by participating in fitness classes, attending health programs, walking or doing various other activities will win a prize.  The contest is open to all levels of participants.  St. Camillus Life Plan Community offers a six dimensional Revitalize Wellness program promoting physical, intellectual, spiritual, community, social and emotional wellness.
