The Importance of Engaging Activities in Memory Care Communities

Chapters Living bookmark

At Chapters Living, we help our residents live life to the fullest! Memory care activities aren’t just about fun (even though we have plenty of that!) We build our event calendars with intentional programming that offers a wide variety of benefits to our residents. Here are some of the key ways engaging activities boost the health, wellness, and lifestyles of seniors with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia.

Emotional Well-being: 

Activities give residents an opportunity to socialize, express their creativity, and feel a sense of accomplishment. All of which contribute to a happier mood! Some of our residents’ favorite mood-boosting activities include music therapy, painting, or working on craft projects. 

Cognitive Function: 

We incorporate a variety of activities that challenge the mind, such as puzzles, reminiscing games, and board games. Findings from observational studies suggest these kinds of activities can help promote cognitive health for seniors with memory loss. 

Physical Health: 

Gentle exercise and movement activities help seniors with dementia maintain strength, build  heart health, and keep a good sleep schedule according to the National Institute on Aging. Our team knows it’s particularly important to find ways for each individual to get exercise in a safe, personalized manner. We facilitate group walks in the courtyard, seated exercises, and gardening activities to make sure all of our residents have a safe (and fun) way to get moving.

Sense of Community: 

Group activities build connections and friendships! These connections help combat feelings of isolation that can often accompany memory loss. We host theme parties, bingo nights, holiday gatherings, game-day viewings and more to foster a sense of community among our Chapters Living residents. 

Our communities are buzzing with engaging activities designed to cater to a variety of interests and abilities! The Chapters Living team is committed to providing personalized care and a fulfilling lifestyle for every resident.
