Led by qualified and trained Wellness, Resident Service and Activity Directors, the Artegan Wellness Program has five components: Physical activity, brain power, social connections, spirituality and the culinary experience. Our approach is holistic; we value the connection of the individual program components; a great way to “Celebrate the ART of your life.”
Variety is the spice of life and at the heart of Physical Health at The Montecito. Exercise is physical activity that’s planned, structured and repetitive like tai chi, or an aerobics class. Even if you’ve never exercised, it’s not too late to start. Physical activity will help increase your energy, be steadier on your feet and best of all, will extend your life.
