Strengthening the Mind, Body and Spirit

Concordia believes in the power of maintaining mental and physical fitness. Just like human bodies need physical activities to say fit, an active brain is vital to memory support and keeping a young, healthy mind. This event is just one example of the resources Concordia provides for residents to strengthen the aging mind, body and spirit.
