Why are Activities so Important in Assisted Living Communities?
A strong social life has been linked with many health benefits for seniors, boosting mood, physical activity, and cognitive function. That’s why assisted living communities are built on a social model. Daily activities provide opportunities for residents to meet their neighbors, make friends, pursue their passions, and try new things.
What Kinds of Activities Does Aegis Living Offer?
Each community tailors its Life Enrichment program to suit the interests and passions of its residents. We offer activities ranging from classic favorites, such as walking club and game nights, to more uncommon offerings such as ukulele classes and tai chi.
Does Aegis Offer Programs for Holidays and Special Occasions?
We love celebrating holidays and special occasions with our residents and their families. From our annual “12 Days of Holiday Cheer” in December to resident birthday parties, our Life Enrichment teams throw their hearts into creating special moments for special occasions. See how we celebrated one resident’s 103rd birthday!
Aegis Games 2023Aegis Games is a three-week competition where we invite residents and team members across all our communities to participate in over 45 Olympic-inspired events that encourage physical fitness, cognitive health, and social fulfillment.
