Many seniors get so caught up in their daily routines that they forget to share their stories with their adult children and grandchildren. But every senior has a unique story to tell. From writing down memories to creating a video, here are some ways for seniors to record their thoughts for the next generation.
In honor of National Craft Month, which takes place during March, we’re encouraging all of our residents to embrace their creative side. Participating in arts and crafts is not only enjoyable for many senior citizens but it can also be therapeutic. According to the American Art Therapy Association, crafting can promote awareness and self-expression, relieve anxiety and help seniors cope with confusion and cognitive impairments. It also encourages seniors to develop friendships by bringing together residents who may not interact.
Having a pet has proven to help get senior living community residents into shape all over the country when it comes to boosting morale and decreasing anxiety. We take our promise seriously to enrich the lives of our residents by providing an environment that is physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally stimulating, and our attitude toward pets is a natural continuation of that mindset.
Now is the perfect opportunity to evaluate whether it’s time to have a discussion about Independent Living, Assisted Living or Memory Care options. Capital Senior Living has grown to become one of the largest senior living providers in the United States and offers affordable housing and an enriched lifestyle to thousands of seniors. Our team of professionals provides quality care in each of our unique communities.
