October is winding down at Country Court! It’s been a fun month for us and our residents, full of great dining and snacks, beautiful fall foliage, and lots of laughs shared between friends. Our November activities calendar will be available to view soon. Still, before we jump into chillier weather and holiday preparations, we wanted to share with you some of our favorite activities from October.
Our social activities are all planned with the organization and creativity of our Activities Director. Each month, our calendar is filled with personal care, religious activities for those interested, games and movies, and fun snacks. One of our residents’ favorites was musical entertainment from our friend Mary Elder on piano! She puts on great programs, with this program’s theme being Harvest Moon, which got us into the autumn spirit.
Another important activity we have at Country Court is Armchair Travels, a way for us to go on “stay-cations” here in Mount Vernon while experiencing the sights and sounds of other countries. Lots of people call these virtual vacations! We implement travel photos, videos, and more into these activities.
Finally, our residents appreciated making tasty and fun treats for the five-year-old class at Faith Lutheran Preschool. You may have seen our Cowabunga Apples on social media; we always look forward to providing the little ones with these.
In any senior living environment, it’s essential to feel at home. We aim to do just that with our planned monthly activities at Country Court! Along with our friendly staff, welcoming and clean facility, and environment of like-minded seniors, staying social is a big part of what makes resident life special. We invite you to check out our November calendar and newsletter soon and keep up with us on social media for photo updates!
