Bingo to Tai Chi--Our Favorite Ways to Stay Active around Heritage Place
Heritage Place is one of the most vibrant and active senior living communities in Davis
County. Our assisted living community is not only a place to live, but a place
to have fun, spend time with friends, learn about maintaining health, and stay
senior living community enjoys a variety of activities each day of the week, with on-site
events, like cooking classes, games, and health training, and off-site events
that get our residents involved with the larger community of Bountiful and Salt
Lake City, UT.
Some of our
events have been nail spas for the ladies,
arts and crafts projects, group audiobook listening, crossword puzzle day, pie
socials, help with humanitarian projects, and, of course, Bingo! All kinds of
board games, card games, and a Wii video-game system are available for our
residents to enjoy. Wii bowling competitions are a regular activity.
We make a
point to celebrate each resident's birthday on their birthday and to make
holidays special, for example, by hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for our memory
care residents and their families. And for our residents that are members of
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we offer Sunday and weekday
worship services and a hymnal youth choir every Sunday evening.
We know how
important routine physical health and exercise are for active senior living, so
we also provide various physical fitness programs throughout the week as well
as access to open physical therapy gyms with on-hand licensed therapy staff.
Monday, Wednesday and Friday residents can take part in water aerobics, which
promotes strength in the limbs and helps to increase blood flow without being
overly taxing. Chair aerobics offers similar benefits and is easy for less
mobile residents to attend.
Our Tai Chi
program has also been hugely successful. Tai Chi is great for senior residents
both physiologically and psychologically. Tai Chi helps train the body for
balance which may help reduce the chance of a fall, and can also aid in
relieving stress, anxiety, and depression.
We provide a
Tailored Preferences approach to our activities program because the collected
knowledge and experience of our residents is our greatest asset when it comes
to developing new and innovative events and activities. We are always open to
suggestions and ideas from our residents for new activities and exercise
routines to make the entire senior living community happy and healthy.
