Life Enrichment Activities at The Atriums
While summer may have come and gone, many of our senior living residents are still recounting the season’s events with smiles and laughs as their anticipation grows for the next exciting activity.
At The Atriums, we love summer in particular because of all the opportunities it brings with it, like warm weather, longer days, outdoor activities for seniors and so much more.
Ensuring our senior residents live a healthy, active lifestyle is a major focus of ours, and while our upscale amenities and invigorating wellness programming keep residents plenty busy, planned events and outings promote zeal, new interest and social wellness.
Summer is the best season for enjoying planned outings and social events because of all the reasons I mentioned earlier. In fact, our outing destinations and social events are always changing!
WHAT’S HAPPENED AT THE ATRIUMS
At The Atriums, each new day naturally inspires adventure and new opportunities. Our upscale amenities and services are designed to promote a life of holistic health and social well-being. Residents have the option of choosing from a variety of amenities and activities on how to best spend their time and then, of course, there are all the exciting outings for seniors!
In July, summer went to the dogs as our residents celebrated their beloved furry friends in the beautiful outdoors. The benefits of pet therapy for seniors are outstanding, reducing loneliness while increasing comfort and providing a sense of dependency. In August, the fun continued as residents lined up for the chance to make refrigerator pickles with cucumbers, dill, garlic and jalapeños, all organically grown in our very own garden that residents love tending to. In fact, gardening for seniors is supremely beneficial in preventing health problems like osteoporosis and depression, and it’s a great source of physical activity. Finally, in September, we took a trip to Grinter’s Sunflower Farm, where residents loved strolling among the flowers, meeting Farmer Ted and soaking up the sweet sunshine.
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES FOR SENIORS
Outside of our summer outings, residents regularly enjoy our community happy hours or visiting with friends and family in one of our contemporary common areas. Seniors stay as busy as they want to be with other activities such as:
- Aerobics in our heated pool
- Exercises like yoga and tai chi
- Games and competitions like trivia tournaments, bingo and bridge
- Weekly movie showings and discussions
- Guest performances by singers, dancers and other cultural performers
- Arts and crafts like sewing, drawing and clay pot painting
- Choir group
Enjoying retirement is an elegant experience at the Atriums, courtesy of our incredible wellness programming, abundant amenities, life enrichment and quality care.
