Research shows exercise is an integral element of being healthy, yet many patients struggle with making this a part of their daily habits for a variety of reasons. For example, residents of Acres Homes in northwest Houston are asking for safe spaces to exercise and socialize. That is why Harris Health built and upgraded a walking trail on the property of its Acres Home Health Center. The paved walking trail offers green space and plenty of light to help those who are looking to become more physically active.
Through our work with the BeWell Acres Homes Collaborative spearheaded by MD Anderson, Harris Health is actively exploring avenues to connect Acres Home patients directly to safe spaces and supportive, quality programming, all while tying it back to their care plan.
Talk to your doctor about how exercise fits into your health and wellness plan, as well as opportunities to get fit with Harris Health.
