Senior Living: Staying Active
We already discussed the pains of making the decision to put your loved one in senior living. One thing we want to make sure you look for is that the facility you are looking at has activities going on. More importantly, activities that enrich the life of your loved one. Activities that make them get up and move, makes them use their brain, and encourages them to remain social.
As we age, we need to make sure to keep our minds and bodies stimulated. Here at Tennyson Court, we understand that importance. We have an Activities Team specifically dedicated to ensuring we have multiple activities going on throughout the day, everyday. We base our activities around what our residents need, and also what they want. Click here to see what Heather Broady, our Activities Director, has to say about the impact daily actitivies has on seniors.
We have exercise, stretching, and Thai Chi classes to keep the body engaged. We have trivia, Remember When, and Mind Stretchers to keep the mind engaged. We have a Men’s Club, manicures, baking, art classes, ice cream socials, happy hour, and so much more to keep everyone engaged!
Don’t forget about the outside trips that we take! We go out to lunch, shopping, and even to the casino!
Just because your loved one is moving into a senior care community doesn't mean that the fun needs to end! Check out Tennyson Court’s August calendar to see what we are up to! Better yet…schedule a tour during one of our activities to experience it first hand. We would love to have you!
