As the weather outside turns from cool to bitter cold, it can be tempting to hunker down inside and stay cozy. Nonetheless, winter offers new opportunities to get active, spend time with loved ones and take part in healthy seasonal activities. Being part of a senior living community provides even more opportunities to make the winter season happy and healthy.
Wesley Enhanced Living retirement communities offer services and amenities to help you get the most out of this winter. Keeping active socially, mentally and physically can help you enjoy the cold temperatures and avoid any winter blues. Here are a few of the ways we can help you have a great season:
- Hobbies: Spend the snowy months mastering old hobbies, learning new past times and enhancing your personal development. Whether you enjoy solitary activities or prefer a more social environment, our retirement community can help you stay busy and maintain an active mind, body and spirit this winter.
- Interests: Whether you already take part in seasonal activities, or are looking to start enjoying the winter weather in a more active way, our communities offer different activities, planned events and outings to help you get outside. If you already have year-round hobbies or want to add more skills or activities to your calendar, our range of services and amenities can help.
- Location: Finding a senior living residence that is close to your friends, family or existing neighborhood can help you stay in touch with loved ones all year. Our six retirement communities are located in Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties, giving you options to stay close. We understand that keeping in touch with your family and friends is important year-round, especially during the colder months, and we encourage our residents to have their children and grandchildren visit as much as possible.
- Fitness: Winter is the perfect time to start a more active routine. Enjoy the beautiful snow on our walking trails or take part in a new fitness class. Seated yoga, tai chi, and full body fitness classes are sure to keep you warm even when it is cold outside. “Exercise is crucial to the health and well-being of seniors,” said Kimberly Halladay, a fitness instructor at Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line. “Despite the limitations that inevitably come with the aging process, exercise can really improve quality of life. Gentle range-of-motion exercises increase joint flexibility. Weight training improves muscle and joint strength and promotes bone growth. Cardiovascular workouts improve heart and lung health and boost production of feel-good endorphins.”
