New Hobbies to Stay Active at a Senior Living Community
Common health conditions like strokes, severe arthritis and injuries from falls can limit a senior’s mobility. But many seniors are discovering new hobbies through their active senior living community. Here are six ideas to explore.
Art can be a fun hobby and creating something all your own can truly be a therapeutic release! “The Artist in You…” is a class Generations offers where residents can work with watercolor, paints and more. Movies and music are two popular pastimes offered by many assisted living communities. Revisit your favorite classic films or enjoy elegant piano music by the fireside. Form friendships and socialize at happy hours and musical entertainment.
Mind, Body & Spirit
Many seniors choose to stay active by fueling their mind, body and spirit. All are equally important! At Generations, we offer many activities that fall into this category, such as Tai-Chi, neck massage, a musical fitness class, Wii Bowling, a nail spa and styling salon, and “Wellness and You” and “Health Talk” educational programs.
When searching for an assisted living community, reviewing the food options is essential, but in addition to nourishment, food can also be made into a fun activity. At Generations, we offer several opportunities surrounding the love of food and socializing over meals, such as cooking demos of favorite recipes, summer cookouts on the patio, Men’s Club Lunch Brunch, Baldwin Wallace University concert luncheons and local ice cream shop socials.
Looking for some friendly competition along with some laughs? Whether you enjoy playing cards or word games, Generations has something for everyone. Try your hand at poker, pinochle or rummy. Play word games like Farkle and Scrabble. What about Bingo or a dice game like Left Center Right.
Many of our residents stay connected with religious and spiritual practices by taking part in offerings such as “Hymns to Him,” Bible study, church services, weekly Communion and saying the Rosary.
If getting out and about is more your style, we’ve got that too. Residents can partake in day trips to places like Amish Country (Burton, OH), Hartville Kitchen (Hartville, OH), Hard Rock Casino (Northfield, OH), Botanical Gardens (Cleveland, OH), Strongsville Senior Center activities and Historic Downtown Berea Shops.
In addition to these fun hobbies and activities offered at Generations, our active senior communities have many spaces for quiet reading, exercise, fireside chats and board games. The possibilities are endless. Interested in learning more about our senior living solutions? Get started today!
