The Retreat

The Retreat Everyday enrichment for older adults.

The Retreat offers exceptional adult day and therapeutic services to individuals and families of the Sandhills region. We embrace the opportunity to provide our members with life enrichment, support their family care partners and champion the community’s efforts in meeting the needs of the aging population. Our mission is to allow adults to age in place in their own homes, provide respite for care partners, reduce the costs associated with care to remain at home, and delay, defer or eliminate the need for institutionalization.

We are so grateful and blessed with our nurses! Happy Nurse's Day, Karen, Michelle and Heidi ❤️

I am disheartened to let you know that we are closing The Retreat today at 5p. We will re-open once governmental officials give us the go-ahead and clearance to do so. Until such time, call us for anything (leave a message if no one answers as it will get to me) and above all, be safe! ~ warm thoughts and love, Kathryn

Here is a taste of our fantastic experiences today at The Retreat, from Cooking 101 to T’ai Chi with Martin Locklear, roast beef, mashed potatoes, and pie for lunch, Music Therapy with Georgene Fayssoux and a birthday party for our March birthdays!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from The Retreat!

The Retreat has a Tai Chi class every Wednesday, taught by Martin Locklear. Here's some great information on the potential benefits of this practice:

"Tai Chi May Slow Down the Progression of Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

February 25, 2020 - Parkinson's disease cannot be cured but symptoms can be improved by making use of physical therapy. A Chinese study published by Brazilian journal of medical and biological research in February 2020 compared the effect of routine exercises and Tai Chi on physical and clinical performance in elderly people suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Three groups of 22 individuals were considered: the verum group, which performed true Qigong; the control group, which performed sham, or placebo Qigong; and the waiting list group. In order to evaluate Qigong effects, attention tests (d2) were applied to all groups before the intervention period (t1) and after two and four weeks of practice (t2 and t3, respectively).

Data from interviews, physical and clinical performance, and levodopa consumption of 500 patients with confirmed Parkinson's disease (severity level I to III) were collected and analyzed. Two hundred fifty Participants who received 80 min/day Tai Chi 3 times/week for 2 months were included in the Tai Chi (TC) group and the same number of participants who received 90 min/day routine exercise 3 times/week for 2 months were included in routine exercise (RE) group.

Timed up-and-go, 50-foot speed walk, and functional reach were improved by Tai Chi and routine exercise but intensities of Tai Chi for improvement of such parameters was higher than routine exercise. Incidence of falls was decreased by both physical therapies but more for the TC group. In the TC group, at the end of follow-up, 22 (9%) patients were successful in withdrawal of levodopa treatment. Also, the dose of levodopa was decreased in patients of the TC group who had to continue levodopa.

The results show that Tai Chi had the potential to slow down the progression of symptoms of Parkinson's disease and delayed the introduction of levodopa (level of evidence: III)."
