For hundreds of years, mankind has been looking for a way to live longer. While genetics and disease play a major role in life expectancy, the secret to the Fountain of Youth may be more obvious than expected.
Akash Brahmbhatt of Spring, Texas is the owner of two assisted living homes: Silver Hills Assisted Living in Montgomery and Caring Hands Personal Care Home in Porter.
About five years ago, after working in the banking industry for the majority of his career, Akash Brahmbhatt decided it was time for a change. As an active member of his church and a frequent volunteer at foster care homes, he knew that he wanted to make a living by helping other people. He soon made that dream come true and purchased his first assisted living facility.
What is the secret to keeping over 60 senior citizens living long, healthy lives? The simple answer may surprise you:
According to Express, a daily 25-minute brisk walk can extend your life up to seven additional years. It can improve cognitive function and ward off dementia and depression. It may even keep you looking younger.
It was also found that women who walked at 3 miles per hour or more were 90 percent less likely to have a heart attack, diabetes, kidney disease, pulmonary disease, Parkinson’s disease and other chronic conditions than women who didn’t stress pace, according to a study published on National Public Radio’s website.
Akash Brahmbhatt has devoted his life to caring for senior citizens. Silver Hills was awarded Home of the Year by the Texas Organization of Residential Homes and it was voted Best Assisted Living in Montgomery County by the Courier Newspaper. But recognition is just a bonus to him; his most important goal is to keep residents happy and healthy during their stay.
Both of Brahmbhatt’s facilities offer plenty of outdoor space for residents to roam. The beautiful landscaping, fresh air and friendly staff encourage seniors to keep their sneakers moving as they enjoy the path to a long life.
