At Ebenezer Senior Living, we pride ourselves on building a community that is fun for every resident. We offer several activities for our residents to enjoy. Here are some of the best social activities for seniors to participate in:
Stay Nimble by Practicing Yoga
Whether you're young or old, yoga is a wonderful way to relax and relieve tension, while also reenergizing your mental being. Yoga can be practiced by anyone at any stage, allowing it to either be a leisurely activity or a strenuous workout. One of the benefits of yoga is having increased flexibility and mobility. In addition to these great physical benefits, yoga is an opportunity to gather with other like-minded people.
On a nice, sunny afternoon, taking a scenic walk with a friend or a regular walking group is a chance to get out of your home and spend some time with others. Walking is a great way to stay active, while meeting new people in your senior living community. Admire the views and new conversations, and take part in one of the best social and physical activities at Ebenezer Senior Living.
Get Jazzy & Take a Dance Class
Dancing isn’t just for the stars! One of the many opportunities that are available to residents are dancing classes. The type of dancing will vary, but some of the most common options include ballroom dancing, line dancing, and jazzercise. No matter what form of dancing it is, it will be a great opportunity for an older individual to not only exercise but to also have fun.
A lot of senior living homes have a regular game night that they host for the residents. If there is a particular game that someone loves to play, then they can find others who love that game and join a group that regularly gathers to play it. So regardless if you enjoy bingo, bridge, cribbage, or dominos, sign up for your community’s game night and get playing.
Whether you’re living on your own or entering a senior living community, participating in social activities is a great way to have fun and meet new people. Get active and join a walking group or get dressed up and go dancing at a community salsa class. Check out the social activities Ebenezer Senior Living has to offer.
