Senior Living Events at Dixon Rehab

While the golden years of life look different for everyone, many older adults find themselves living a more active lifestyle in retirement than they did in their younger years! With a growing focus on life enrichment, seniors, their families and many senior living communities now understand the importance of social wellness and living an active lifestyle as we age. For seniors who live in a senior community, the opportunity to take part in hobbies for seniors, crafts for seniors and other fun activities for seniors can have mental, emotional and physical health benefits and can create a healthier lifestyle overall. These health benefits include:

·       Improved cardiovascular health

·       Improved social wellness

·       Improved mental health and a more positive mood

·       Better sleep

·       Lower risk of falls thanks to improved balance

·       Better able to maintain a healthy weight

·       Increased bone strength

·       Reduced risk of hypertension

Senior Living Events

At Dixon Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, the team is always working to create senior living events that engage residents and encourage an active lifestyle. In August, the community celebrated World Lion Day! To mark the occasion, residents had a special viewing of the movie The Lion King and enjoyed a feast of oven-baked sandwiches, animal crackers, cake dip and banana cream pie. Residents also took fun photos with a balloon lion mane. Also in August, all the residents with August birthdays got to enjoy some swashbuckling fun! The pirate theme was a hit – no one had to walk the plank. Residents welcomed September with craft activities for seniors. Using apples as stamps, residents got creative making spooky pictures to decorate the community hallways.
