“People have the same basic needs at any age: to explore, have fun, learn, and live life to the fullest. Senior living activities do much more than just pass the time. They help seniors lead healthier, happier lives.

Assisted living facilities offer activities to suit all seniors’ interests

Assisted living communities offer a variety of activities to suit residents’ varying abilities and interests. Here are some of the top ways A Place for Mom’s partner communities help seniors stay active.

Learning new skills
Lifelong learning is crucial to feeling energized and interested in life. Workshops and classes in senior living communities include:

  • Painting classes
  • Educational lectures
  • Book clubs
  • Computer classes
  • Foreign language classes
  • Writing workshops
  • Woodworking classes

Dancing remains ever-popular at senior communities and is a daily event for most. Dancing is not only fun, but it helps keep residents fit. Plus, it’s an excellent social opportunity.

Residents often enjoy:

  • Ballroom dancing
  • Line dancing
  • Swing dancing
  • Square dancing

The show must go on! Entertainment is a mainstay of most assisted living facilities. Entertainers often perform at communities so residents don’t need to travel. Sometimes, friends and family are even invited.”
