Time To Celebrate Summer

15 May 2024

Assisted Living & Memory Care in Woodstock GA  
Time To Celebrate Summer - Woodstock, GA

Welcome back to our Manor Lake Hickory Flat senior assisted living and memory care blog! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), loneliness and isolation are connected to low levels of activity. And here’s the thing to know about inactivity. The hardest part is…..simply getting started. Sir Isaac Newton nailed it when he discovered that “an object at rest tends to stay at rest”. So, let’s get moving…. it’s summer!

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 (just a few weeks away!), the Fourth of July, or just a simple 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

Here at Manor Lake Hickory Flat Assisted Living and Memory Care in Woodstock, GA, 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 community! These social crafts 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!

Indoor games

Some folks just love competition, and within both our Manor Lake Hickory Flat assisted living community and our Manor Lake Hickory Flat memory care community, 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 encourage game play for everyone, no matter their skill level or activity level. It’s our goal to create an inclusive, vibrant environment that everyone can enjoy!

Socialization is the key to preventing isolation and loneliness in senior citizens. Here at Manor Lake Hickory Flat Assisted Living & Memory Care in Woodstock, GA, we encourage all our dear residents to actively socialize. It warms us all to witness how active our residents’ families are in helping their loved ones adapt and meet new people. We’d love to meet you. Stop in anytime!
