Balance Fitness

This very popular program is specifically designed for residents of varying cognitive and physical ability by Dr. Chuck McGlade, President of Ridgeline, and Patricia Endres, a Ridgeline Recreational Therapist. The fitness program improves core strength, resulting in better balance and fewer falls. We work with physical therapists and primary care physicians to report progress and improved functional fitness.
