At Southfield, residents have numerous senior living activities to choose from, both in our community and outside of it. We understand that being active is the best way to stay healthy and happy, so we do our utmost to help our residents stay involved and able to pursue their interests.
Senior Living Activities for Your Body and Mind
Staying active means exercising your body and mind. Sometimes you’re able to do both. At Southfield, we encourage residents to get out and explore the community. To make this easier, we offer extensive transportation services so residents can confidently plan activities such as:
- Visiting museums: In central Indiana, there are plenty of museums and historical attractions where healthy senior citizens can learn more about their community and enjoy themselves with others.
- Visiting the library: The modern library is so much more than just a place to check out books. Not only will individuals find a knowledgeable staff that can find them the literature they are most interested in but also classes covering all sorts of topics. The library is also a good venue to use modern technology to stay connected to family and friends.
- Continuing Education Classes: Your retirement years are an excellent time to expand what you know and share your knowledge with other generations. Taking a continuing education class, a language class, an art class, or attending a lecture is an excellent way to keep your mind healthy and active.
Forming or Joining a Club
Perhaps the best way to stay active is by joining up with others in a club. In this way, you’ll always have someone to turn to for support, and you can learn more about hobbies you previously didn’t know much about. For example, crafting clubs can consist of a wide range of hobbies. Some other useful clubs to form or look to join include:
- Walking Clubs: Exploring your community and town is always more pleasant when it’s done at an easy pace with people to talk to. Walking clubs are a simple but effective way to stay physically active and build friendships in retirement.
- Gardening Clubs: At Southfield, we’ve removed the need to do lawn care. But some individuals truly love working in the soil and growing plants, whether they are decorative or vegetables. Gardening gets seniors outside, is low impact but still active, and a great way to connect and stay connected with others.
- Book Clubs: Being active also means staying mentally active. Perhaps the best way to do this is by reading. One of the best ways to stay engaged is by talking with others about what you’ve read. A book club is an excellent way to socialize and keep your mind engaged.
