Thanksgiving week for seniors at Melody Living
While we may be celebrating Thanksgiving a bit differently this year, there’s no reason why our staff and senior residents at Melody Living Lake in the Hills can’t enjoy a little festive fun in our assisted living and memory care neighborhoods! With safety as our top priority year-round, we’ve added a few extra precautions this year at Melody Living in Lake in the Hills to ensure a safe and enjoyable celebration for all.
This week, we’ll be celebrating all that we’re thankful for with a some of our community members’ highly requested programs to include:
Coffee Cart & Coffee Café
Our morning coffee cart and Coffee Café ensures that all week long, residents can enjoy a freshening start to their day with freshly brewed coffee and tea! Nothing quite beats the start to a good day than with a little java.
Let’s Get Physical
In addition to our state-of-the-art fitness center, our community thrives on staying as active as possible to continue to thrive at any age and ability. This week, we’re hosting a Walking Club, Sit and Be Fit with Paxxon, doing some Fitness Fun and “Turkey” Races, our very own rendition of the “Turkey Trot”, and exercises with Paxxon.
Self-Care for Seniors
Our team also has plenty of self-care opportunities setup for our senior residents to enjoy this week. From our Spiritual Sunday, Soothing Sensations, and Independent Pursuits, to our Read and Relax, and Relax and Reminisce sessions, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on a daily basis.
Socially Distant Socializing
We also are offering fun opportunities for seniors to enjoy, as well as staff, such as our Card Club, Trivia, Monday Movie Magic, Food Committee, BINGO, Giant Checkers, Creative Crafts, Wednesday Wine Club, Walking Club, Cookie Cart, Friday Flick!, Word Searches & Wine, Table Games, and last but not least, our Leisure Cart that pops by residents’ doors for a quick pick me-up that they can enjoy from the comfort of their own home. In addition to these fun and festive-themed activities, our residents can enjoy a savory meal prepared by our expert culinary team to include traditional favorites while topping off the evening with some decadent delights as well! With the support of this week’s Food Committee as a part of the influence behind our menu, we can’t wait to share what they’ve been working to produce!
