Ditch the perception of seniors playing Bingo all afternoon in assisted living.
Bingo may still be a popular activity in some circles, but today’s assisted living homes have moved beyond the basics, weaving in activities that are progressive, exciting, and stimulating. (And most of them don’t even use the term “activities” to talk about these programs).
Emeritus Senior Living, currently the country’s largest assisted living provider with over 32,000 residents at 308 facilities nationwide, offers Life Enrichment programming: educational events, guest speakers, Tai Chi, dance classes, brain health fairs, Walking Club, planned outings, holiday/themed celebrations, and numerous others. Each event is “designed to add joy, purpose and meaning”; program directors tailor the social calendar to integrate the hobbies, interests, and careers that comprise the collective experience of Emeritus residents.
Residents at Leisure Care Retirement Communities have no excuse for boredom with unique offerings like the PrimeFit wellness and lifestyle support program, the Twist Travel vacation program, and the Seniors Making Art® program, backed by world famous glass artist Dale Chihuly. This acclaimed non-profit endeavor fosters a distinctive opportunity for assisted living residents to express themselves creatively, thanks to training from professional artists.
The award-winning LiveWell! programs at Horizon Bay assisted & independent living communities include activities spanning the “six dimensions of wellness”; the goal of this balanced activity calendar is to offer programs that “contribute to a well-rounded person.”
