Field trips to the apple orchard may sound like a first-grade activity, but there are just as many 65-year-olds picking honey crisps in the fall as there are six-year-olds. In other words, everyone loves an outing, regardless of age. In a well-managed senior living community, group outings will be regularly scheduled, and group activities for seniors will be a high priority. Regardless of your mobility or interests, Calder Woods will make sure you get to participate in as many group outings as you wish.
To speak to one of our staff about the kinds of offerings we have each day and week throughout the year, reach out today. You can use our online form or call us at 409.407.7636. Our group activities for the elderly include on-site classes, committees, clubs, and fabulous day trips to a range of places of local interest. Specific activities for the elderly during COVID-19 are a priority for keeping our residents safe while they stay engaged.
Why Group Activities for Seniors Are Important
Some people fear that life in a senior retirement community will be isolating and result in a loss of engagement with the world. However, at Calder Woods, we understand that interactions with other people and the community keep our residents happy and healthy.
Exploring the local community by participating in group outings helps residents:
- Avoid loneliness
- Meet new people
- Learn and explore
- Re-engage with interests that may have lapsed
- Discover new interests
- Maintain mental and physical health
- Reduce the risk of dementia
Group transportation to numerous locations in our lovely river valley can connect you to missionary and spiritual organizations, social activities, museums, parks, restaurants, shopping centers, and much more. Beaumont is a bustling South Texas city filled with places of interest.
