Information on plans to expand the RBAC will be coming soon!


Location The Wellness Center will be located adjacent to the innovative Therapy Pool which is heated to 91 degrees and is open daily providing healing warm water exercise. The buoyancy of water makes it possible for those with special needs to do many exercises that could not be done on land and the warmth of the water relaxes patrons and increases blood circulation. The RBAC provides scholarships so that no one is denied opportunity because of economic disadvantage.


Plans The Wellness Center will have an unobstructed view of the Therapy Pool from the south side and will have easy deck access for patrons. The facility will include family changing rooms and locker rooms and features throughout to assist those with impaired mobility, i.e., those using wheelchairs, walkers and canes. Plans include a multi-purpose room for land-based exercise consultations and assessments in keeping with HIPAA requirements, and educational programs co-sponsored by other non-profit agencies including the Arthritis Foundation, American Diabetes Association and the Autism Alliance. There will be offices for the Aquatics Director and therapists and a first aid room.


Importance Every effort to support regular exercise programs for those with special needs has the potential of contributing to good health. Research shows that regular exercise on even a moderate-intensity level may help prevent as well as mitigate the symptoms of many diseases. Exercise has been shown to reduce the risk of dying of coronary heart disease and decrease the risk for stroke, colon cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. It also helps to control weight, contributes to healthy bones, muscles, and joints; reduces falls among older adults; helps to relieve the pain of arthritis, reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression, and is associated with fewer hospitalizations, physician visits, and medications.
