Autumn is known for its vibrant leaves, crisp air, and fun events. Here are some simple ways to accent a small space with beautiful autumn decor.
Most everyone is familiar with the idea of streaming video content online. Websites like Netflix have paved the way for video content by providing the ability to stream entire seasons in one sitting. But those are shows produced by studios and aimed at the traditional style of watching movies and television. YouTube, on the other hand, is something different. There’s a smorgasbord of content just waiting to be discovered on YouTube with more being added by the minute. While it’s produced by regular people, this content is often as entertaining as the big-budget Hollywood productions. Even better, there are plenty of creators with life experiences that can make content relevant to specific age groups or people with various interests. Here are a few creators to get you started with a YouTube viewing habit.
For many older adults, relationships with younger people are important. However, the age gap can sometimes make clear communication harder. While seniors should certainly expect that their younger relatives learn how to communicate respectfully and effectively, this education goes both ways.
The internet has so many benefits and chief among them is getting to see images that you cannot see in real life. Nature watching is an enjoyable activity at any age and one that many seniors enjoy. After a lifetime of careers, families, friends and travel, sometimes slowing down to view nature from a detailed perspective can make it all the more appealing.
Summer is coming, and despite some late-spring snow, Colorado is warming up. Seniors may be excited to get out into gardens or walk in the warm breeze during morning or evening times. But the hottest part of the day can be uncomfortable and sometimes even dangerous to spend outdoors. If you're looking for fun ways to beat the heat this season, consider curling up on the hottest of days with a good Netflix show in your assisted living apartment for other residence. Here are some shows and movies you might have missed that you can stream this summer.
If you're a senior that is moving into retirement age or has already been living out those vibrant golden years, you know that there is still a lot to take care of on a daily basis. While you might be free from the schedule encumbrances and obligations of a career or caring for a young family, that doesn't mean you're lying around all day doing nothing.
Here are five sports to consider participating in to improve overall fitness. Before you embark on any new activity, though, make sure to clear it with your doctor—especially if you're dealing with a chronic condition or mobility concerns.
The digestive system is a large and complex system in our bodies. For adults, the actual system of organs that handle digestive functions can be around 30 feet long if you were to spread it out in a linear fashion. That's a lot of body tissue and organs, which means there's plenty of room for something to go wrong—one reason digestive complaints are a very common issue among people of all ages.
Winter is in full swing, and for many seniors, getting out in the cold isn't something they want to do often or for very long. But whether you like to zip up and brave the brisk winds for a walk or you'd rather stay cozy in an armchair in the assisted living community, winter movies can be fun entertainment. They help you relive or remember past adventures in the snow, warm up under a blanket after your own recent expedition or while away dark winter evenings.
As a faith-based organization, we believe that every person is uniquely created by God and that they have something to offer to others on this earth. That uniqueness means that everyone’s needs and preferences differ, and that’s true even as we age. That means what might be right for one older adult isn’t necessarily ideal for another, which is why at the Park Regency assisted living community in Loveland, we offer numerous levels of care and service options you can choose from.
