Staying active and engaged is a big part of maintaining a healthy, long life. For many people, it can be challenging to do this at home, especially if they are at home or have limited mobility. At Wickshire Senior Living Norman, we offer recreational programs and activities to keep our residents happy and ensure the best quality of life possible. Reach out to us today at 405.360.4755 to learn how we can help your loved one grow and thrive.
Why Do Recreational Programs Matter?
Recreational activities for seniors may need to be different from what you may expect from those who are younger. Yet, they can still be lively, fun, and educational. Engaging in activities can provide a wide range of benefits, including:
- Keeping the mind engaged longer may help to reduce the onset or worsening of memory problems.
- Active recreational programs help to keep the body physically fit.
- It may help to reduce the risk of injury or detrimental illness in some people.
- Engagement in activities helps to improve the quality of life simply by enjoying life a bit more.
- Residents can gain more opportunities to socialize when they are using a program like this.
When a person is active, engaged in life around them, talking to others, and interacting with their interests, they may enjoy life a bit more. That’s one of the goals we can offer.
What Type of Recreational Programs Are Available?
Numerous recreational programs are available at Wickshire Senior Living Norman. The programs we offer change based on the seasons and interests that our residents share. Other times, we may be unable to provide some activities due to limitations due to social distancing requirements. Some of the types of recreational activities we may offer to our residents include:
- Arts and crafts programs
- Fitness and yoga programs
- Meditation programs
- Reading (we provide a full library of books to enjoy)
- Social activities and get-togethers
- Wide and Well program
We also offer transportation and numerous planned outings throughout the year. That means people get to learn, grow, and share knowledge. They can spend time with a group of friends socializing or take on a new program to learn about history. The options are numerous, and that’s a good thing since each resident is unique in their interests and desires.
No one is ever required to participate in these programs. Yet, we encourage our residents to do so. The more they do, the better their quality of life will be. More so, we encourage our residents to share interests and activities with us. New things to do are always a welcome conversation.
