We all love the sunshine and the carefree feeling that summer brings. It’s always a great time to get together and celebrate life’s special moments, whether it be Father’s Day, the Fourth of July, or a weekend cookout.
For some, however, the summer can pose challenges, as the heat and humidity make it difficult to enjoy time outside and may even pose a health risk to some vulnerable groups. For that reason, some people find it difficult to enjoy the activities that they love once the hot weather sets in.
But fear not! There are plenty of ways for seniors to stay active and social without spending too much time in the heat. Keep reading to learn more about the activities you can do this summer!
Arts & crafts
We’re always looking to find ways for our residents to express their creativity, and arts and crafts classes prove to be the perfect place to do it. Whether it’s knitting or making a holiday-themed trinket, there’s always an arts and crafts activity going on at our communities!
These classes take place in a social setting where seniors can make friends and share tips with one another, learning new ways to express themselves. It’s a great way to come together over a common interest, forming new bonds along the way!
Some folks just love competition, and at our communities, we’re all for that! That’s why we’ve created ways in which our residents can let that competitive spirit show while having fun in the process. By playing indoor games, residents can enjoy the thrill of competition while making new friends and memories, all while staying cool. We have crafted these games for everyone to play, no matter their skill level or activity level. It’s our goal to create an inclusive, vibrant environment that everyone can enjoy!
Make a splash!
A summertime swim is always a good way to cool off! Pools are a main feature of many Sagora communities, serving a multi-faceted role when it comes to community wellness. In addition to their recreational usage, they also serve as a venue for our workout classes, a space where residents can play water-based games and so much more!
Some of our communities even feature indoor pools, meaning you can enjoy the water no matter the outdoor weather!
Across all 61 Sagora Senior Living communities, we’re dedicated to helping residents maximize each day, enjoying a high standard of living with plenty of opportunities for recreation and relaxation. We have created ways where residents can thrive, no matter the season.
