Senior Living Events at The Atriums
For many people, summertime is their favorite time of year. The days are longer, the holidays are frequent, the temperatures are warm, and the food and drinks are enjoyed outdoors! For people of all ages, there is a lot to love about the summer. For seniors, the summer also brings the need to focus on certain aspects of health. Dehydration, sunburn and heart exhaustion are all real dangers that come with the longer hours of sunshine and the higher temperatures. However, by following some simple safety tips, you can make outdoor activities for seniors safe and fun in the summer! These tips include:
- Spend time in cool, shaded places and reduce strenuous activities
- Increase daily water intake and reduce the consumption of alcohol or caffeinated beverages
- Wear sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher, as well as clothing that protects the skin
- Ensure clothing is lightweight and breathable
- Spend time outdoors in the early morning or the evening when the sun is lower
- Know the signs of heat stroke
- Be aware of the risks and utilize eye protection
At The Atriums Senior Living Community, senior living community activities for the summer are planned with both fun and safety in mind.
Senior Living Activities
At The Atriums, each day brings new opportunities and adventures. The Atriums’ senior living community activities are designed to inspire, challenge and create new social opportunities. Residents enjoy a wide variety of choices in how to spend their time, and new and exciting surprises pop up all the time. In June, family, friends and the Tim Whitmer Jazz Trio helped to celebrate a very special birthday as one of the residents marked her 100th trip around the sun! There are several centenarians at The Atriums, and this birthday girl was excited to join the club. Residents also came together to work on arts and crafts projects for an art fair display, and all summer long, residents and team members are enjoying outdoor picnics! The Atriums team puts local favorites and resident requests on the grills to serve up the most delicious tastes of the summer season.
