Activities and Wellness

No Two Days Alike

The wellness, resilience and happiness of our residents is at the heart of everything we do. One of the many benefits of our size is we are able to provide the structure of regular activity times while being creative and spontaneous in how we fill them. In fact, many of our activities are resident-driven; for example, someone may suggest a trip into town to look at art,  a drive up to Ashcroft to see the wildflowers or to listen to a podcast and have a discussion afterwards. A chilly night might be a good reason for hot cocoa by the fire pit outside.

Our weekly happy hour or après-ski brings the friends and family of all of our residents together around drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

Contact our director, Maggie Gerardi today to schedule a tour and lunch.

Morning Activities

After breakfast, we start the day with some form of movement to get the blood flowing, improve balance and coordination and build strength.

  • Chair yoga
  • Stretch class
  • Pilates
  • Balance class

After Lunch Walk

Unless there is inclement weather, we get outdoors after lunch to enjoy our surroundings and the changing seasons. In addition to the benefits of fresh air and sunshine, getting outside in the afternoon helps stave off the mid-afternoon slump to:

  • Improve mood
  • Increase stamina
  • Increase alertness
  • Help prepare for a good night’s sleep

Afternoon Activities

We plan activities in the afternoon to stimulate concentration and curiosity. We are fortunate to have many engaged and engaging volunteers who love to share their passions such as painting and crafts, gardening and singing.

  • Games, trivia and puzzles
  • Popcorn and movies
  • Take a scenic drive
  • S’mores by the fire pit
  • Listen to music
  • Share interests
