Abstract

Misericordia caters to a large population of physical and mentally impaired individuals. One of the most important aspects of the resident’s lives is to engage with others and to stay active. With the Fitness and Pool Center residents are able to utilize a vast array of exercise equipment that allows residents to enrich their individual characteristics. A significant facet of the center is the many programs that they host, including “Sit and Be Fit” sessions. These sessions allow for an interactive way to intermingle with the residents. This internship encompassed both the fitness center and the programs it offered.
