Activities to keep seniors entertained

Residents get to choose the activities the community offers to ensure they are interested in the programming. Since activities are picked by residents, for residents, they are often well-attended and provide a great opportunity to socialize.

According to Amber Mulhern, executive director, “morning stretch is a popular activity each weekday morning. We use a mixture of therapy bands, light weights and muscle coordination. Working your core, arms and legs on a regular basis keeps muscles from going weak. Our exercise program suits everyone, no matter their skill or ability level. We make modifications to allow all residents to participate.”

Residents also enjoy relaxing outside and participating in ice cream socials and happy hour. “We emphasize large group socialization that is inviting for everyone,” says Mulhern. “Our residents look forward to weekly rituals, like ice cream on Wednesdays and snacks and beverages on Friday afternoons.”

Other regular activities include:

  • Walking club
  • Arts & crafts
  • Card game group
  • Yoga classes
  • Off-site activities like shopping and field trips
