The visionaries at Parker suspected long ago that physical activity has a direct effect on both the physical and cognitive health of mature adults, which is one of the reasons we added a Health and Wellness Center when we built Parker at the Pavilion in 2006. Ten years later, this fact was verified in a study of a senior brain health exercise program, which was published in the Journal of Exercise and Biochemistry (June 2016 issue). The study determined that a 12-week Senior Brain Health Exercise program resulted in a positive effect on changing basic physical fitness and cognitive function.
