Many people assume that moving into a senior living community means slowing down, but often the exact opposite occurs. Senior living communities like Navion ensure their residents have plenty of enriching activities and opportunities to make social connections. Here are just a few ways that communities help residents stay active and engaged:
- Community events: Senior living communities often have a schedule of planned activities and events, such as exercise classes, game nights, movie screenings, and educational workshops. These activities are designed to appeal to a range of interests and abilities.
- Holiday celebrations: Many communities use holidays as an opportunity to gather with residents and their loved ones. From Easter egg hunts to Halloween costume parties, there’s always something fun to do and a reason to celebrate together.
- Social spaces: Common living areas in senior living communities allow residents to mingle and get to know each other. Courtyards, libraries, and dining rooms are great spaces to meet residents and make new connections.
- Intergenerational activities: Some senior living communities organize activities and events that connect residents to younger generations, such as school visits or intergenerational mentoring programs. These can be a great way to promote social interaction and bridge the generation gap.
Whether it’s a large party or just a quiet space to have a conversation, you can rest assured that you or your loved one in a senior living community will have plenty of ways to stay involved.
