Whether you’re grabbing a cup of tea with a friend or chatting with your hairdresser, regular social interactions are a vital part of living life to its fullest. Studies show that socializing on a regular basis is linked to improved mental and physical health in older adults.
At ViewPointe assisted living community, we prioritize meaningful social interactions and activities for all residents. With endless amenities and gathering spots nearby, finding things to do around the community is easy. With that in mind, here are 10 activities you can participate in at ViewPointe.
Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand, so why not take some time out of your day to visit the on-site salon? You can get a new look and, most importantly, spend time catching up with neighbors and acquaintances in the beauty parlor. Afterward, you’ll be able to recount the experience with your friends and family the next time they visit.
Nothing beats a good old-fashioned family potluck. At ViewPointe you can book a private dining room where your friends and family can enjoy an extended visit without interruptions. Whether you have a birthday on the horizon or just want to experience a classic Sunday dinner, the private dining room is an ideal spot. Don’t want to cook? No problem! Catering is also available.
Like with any good friend, hanging out with your pets can be an instant mood-booster. Studies show that interacting with your pet, especially during times of isolation, can fulfill some of your social and emotional needs. Luckily, ViewPointe is a pet-friendly community, so you and Whiskers can keep adventuring through life together.
At ViewPointe assisted living community, there’s always a jam-packed events calendar full of enriching social clubs and special activities. Residents here can participate in everything from bridge club to group exercises and board game nights. Joining clubs or activities is an easy way to find companions who share similar interests, so be sure to check that calendar frequently.
It’s no surprise that regular physical activity is a healthy practice. Working out in a group is an excellent way to meet friends and maybe even try something new — like yoga, for example. There are a variety of fitness programs at ViewPointe, so you can try something new every week if you want to.
While there’s plenty of fun to be had on-site, getting out and exploring the local neighborhood is always fun. The community provides scheduled transportation to local appointments and cultural events. You can explore some of the best dining options in Colorado Springs or buy some gifts for the grandkids at local shops.
Social interaction is important, but every now and then we all need time for quiet reflection. And what better place for that than the library? Not only does reading support cognitive function later in life, but regular reading can also improve your mood. Whether you want to curl up with the latest page-turner or re-read some of your favorite Bible verses, the on-site library is a resource you’ll want to utilize.
Journaling is an effective way to calm your nerves and get your thoughts out on paper. But if a regular journal doesn’t appeal to you, try dream journaling. A dream journal is typically kept beside your bed — its purpose is to jot down your dreams as soon as you wake up so you don’t forget them. This practice makes it easy to share funny or peculiar dreams with your closest friends.
Staying active in your religious beliefs can bring great comfort. Whether you’re looking for a spiritual leader or simply want to spend some quality time with your prayers, the on-site chapel is waiting for you.
ViewPointe is home to some truly beautiful landscaped grounds — perfect for daily walks in Colorado Springs. On warm sunny days, grab your SPF and your sun hat and go for a walk with a friend or neighbor. This is a perfect opportunity to chat about your week or share updates about your grandchildren. Not to mention, you’ll also reap the benefits that walking regularly can provide.
These are just a few of the many activities you can enjoy when you live at ViewPointe. This community is designed with the comforts of home in mind, so don’t be afraid to dive in head first. Every resident is encouraged to participate in group activities and events so that everyone can live an enriching and inspiring daily life. When you’re here, a new friend or a new hobby isn’t far away.
