Maximize their health, minimize their challenge
As a physician you know the vital benefits of a healthy lifestyle. You also know how hard it can be to get your patients to begin a fitness program. SilverSneakers is proven to work and helps take the challenge out of motivating your patients by making it easy for older adults to get active. Our program not only encourages fitness, but also encourages members to have fun and make friends.
Studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that older adults with certain chronic conditions who participate in SilverSneakers are admitted to the hospital less often, have lower inpatient care costs and have significant reductions in their overall health care costs after only a year. The fun, social aspect of the program along with greater participation is also associated with significantly lower risk of depression.
Additionally, data collected from SilverSneakers members with chronic conditions show no statistically significant loss in health over one year - suggesting that SilverSneakers improves the quality of life for all involved.
