It’s a new year with new possibilities! At Melody Living’s assisted living and memory care community in Lake in the Hills, our residents come first – always. In fact, we plan all our programs and activities based on the desires and needs of the residents. They plan activities and even take part in planning some of our restaurant’s menu items via our Foodies Committee.
We always love sharing what our community is doing on social media! Throughout the year we’ve enjoyed celebrating birthdays, holidays, outings, virtual tours and so much more. While we encourage loved ones to connect with us on Facebook to follow along with the fun, we also share the month’s activities calendar on our website so you can see what’s in store for that month.
While each activity, group, and program we coordinate is a blast, they all touch on at least one of the Eight Dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, occupational, financial, social, and environmental.
Festive fun for seniors From New Year’s Eve countdowns with flutes of champagne, birthday parties, parades, and Happy Hours singing with Elvis, there’s always something fun happening at Melody Living. Our staff and senior residents come together all year long to plan and produce memorable moments like these to cherish for years to come.
Recurring monthly senior activities The residents asked, we listened! Our community truly is resident-driven. Our staff are simply the catalysts to make sure their desires are met, in addition to their needs. We know that each person who calls our community home may have different social activities that they enjoy. Some prefer more interactive and group fun while others may find joy in smaller gatherings in a peaceful setting alone. We make sure that all personality types have something to look forward to each and every day. Some of our most popular recurring calendar events include:
Bingo and game nights
Mimosas and Mingling
Puzzles and Pondering
Cappuccino and Lattes in the Bistro
Card Club and Wine Club
Fitness classes with Paxxon
Virtual trips via our Travel Club
Whatever activity, club or outing suits your style, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy at Melody Living. Living a life in harmony means residents are thriving and residents thrive when the whole person wellness approach is practiced.
When you don’t meet each of the Eight Dimensions of Wellness regularly, one wellness area has the potential to slip. At Melody Living, we are proud that all Eight Dimensions of Wellness are integrated into everything that we do so that residents can live their best life.
