Life at Cross Creek is built on the five pillars of brain health, and relaxation is one of those pillars. Taking part in therapeutic, relaxing activities – like gentle massage – can ease anxiety and depression as well as contribute to a more peaceful demeanor in individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
At Cross Creek at Lee’s Summit, a therapeutic spa will provide a soothing retreat for residents in the comfort of their own community. A whirlpool tub will be a spot to unwind and also an opportunity for hydrotherapy, which can be used to treat joint and muscle pain, arthritis, and even to help elderly individuals regain balance and reduce the risk of falls.
As always, resident safety and well being is our top priority. Residents should always consult with a physician before taking part in a new method of therapy or activity. However, with the proper guidance and care, we believe that providing a tranquil space for our residents will help facilitate calm, healing moments for years to come.
