Retirement is supposed to be a time of excitement, not boredom, yet many retirement homes are lacking when it comes to providing their members with exciting, stimulating, and engaging activities. It is for this reason that so many in the 65+ age group are choosing to reside in Discovery Village At Stuart instead.
About Our Senior Living Community Activities
The activities offered by our community are designed to do more than just alleviate the monotony. Rather, they are designed to bring residents together while providing laughter and the opportunity to use one’s mind and body. For instance, we sometimes offer community dances where residents can engage in friendly competitions which require movement, balance, coordination, and stamina, rewarding those couples that offer the best performances.
Benefits of Having Retirement Community Activities in Your Retirement Community
Our community activities provide a wide range of benefits such as:
- Offsite trips: Southern Florida is spectacular, and is the only region of the Continental U.S. to offer a year-round tropical climate. This is why we regularly take offsite trips where members can tour the nearby Treasure Coast, the Indian River Lagoon, and St. Lucie River.
- Gardening: Many retirees who are 65 years of age and above have a green thumb, and we cater to this by offering gardening courses where members can grow their own fruits and vegetables. Research shows that those who spend time around plants often have lower stress levels and developing a garden creates self-confidence while growing sumptuous ingredients that can be eaten.
- Discourses: Wise retirees recognize that learning doesn’t stop just because they left the workforce. To this end, we offer educational lectures on a broad range of subjects like science, technology, geography, and history.
All of these events are optional and no member is ever pressured or coerced into doing something they have no interest in. We also offer numerous board games which are designed to keep the mind sharp and alert while preventing the onset of memory-related disorders such as dementia.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
While many retirees have done well for themselves financially, there are still things they lack, one of which is companionship. As we age, friends and spouses may pass on and children and grandchildren might live too far away to visit regularly. This can create feelings of loneliness even in elders who are well off materially. This is why many are choosing to spend their retirement at Discovery Village At Stuart.
