October is winding down at The Living Center! It’s been a fun month for us, and our residents, full of great dining and snacks, beautiful fall foliage, and lots of laughs shared between friends. Our November activities calendar will be available to view soon. Still, before we jump into chillier weather and holiday preparations, we wanted to share with you some of our favorite activities from October.
Our social activities are all planned with the organization and creativity of our Activities Director. Each month, our calendar is filled with personal care, religious activities for those interested, games and movies, and fun snacks. One of our residents’ favorites was musical entertainment from our friend Mary Elder on piano! She puts on great programs, and her mom and dad, Living Center Residents Ed and Eleanor, were indeed proud parents that day.
Another fun activity at The Living Center was visits from a few new animal friends. Heather Flack from Humble Horseshoe Farm brought Nay Nay, Monkey and Cookie to visit everyone. Our residents loved feeding the little goats and getting in a quick animal therapy session.
Finally, our residents appreciated our Halloween lunch. We had some great costumes on display, like a witch, a baseball player, and even Rose from the movie Titanic! (Say, whatever happened to the Heart of the Ocean necklace, Rose?) We love getting festive here, which makes the thought of Thanksgiving next month all the better.
In any senior living environment, it’s essential to feel at home. We aim to do just that with our planned monthly activities at The Living Center! Along with our friendly staff, welcoming and clean facility, and environment of like-minded seniors, staying social is a big part of what makes resident life special. We invite you to check out our November calendar and newsletter soon and keep up with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for photo updates!
