What’s Happened at Oakley Courts
At any age, hobbies can broaden our daily experiences, take us on new adventures and allow us to express our creativity. Hobbies can challenge us, engage us and introduce us to new friends. As we age, hobbies become an important part of a healthy lifestyle. For seniors, participating in hobbies and social activities can create a sense of community, improve self-esteem, reduce stress, create a sense of purpose and create a sense of individual satisfaction. Research shows that hobbies that keep your body and mind active may reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and certain types of cancer.
At Oakley Courts Assisted Living and Memory Care Community, we recognize the benefits of hobbies and activities that bring joy and new experiences to our residents. Each day, we offer a variety of choices, and for holidays and special occasions, we take every opportunity to celebrate with festivities and fun!
Recent Senior Activities
In January, the ladies of Oakley Courts had a wonderful time making cozy fleece scarves! This was a fun craft that allowed them to share time with friends, express their creativity and make something lasting. One of the activities in February brought out the residents’ green thumbs! They worked together with staff members to prepare seedlings for spring. Everyone is excited to enjoy the new growth in our beautiful outdoor sitting areas. In March, the residents and staff members were excited to see Britta the therapy dog. Britta brings a smile to everyone who visits her and plays an important role as a companion during therapy sessions.
