Thanksgiving is upon us and our assisted living and memory care community in Colorado Springs could not be more excited to celebrate the season. Even though Thanksgiving and the holiday season is a time for celebration, Melody Living acknowledges that our residents may experience some struggles during this time of year.
As colder months approach, and the sun begins to set earlier, seasonal depression may start to set in for many seniors. Melody Living continues to strive to implement the 8 Dimensions of Wellness in our residents’ life. We encourage social and emotional wellness through continuing daily activities in our sunrooms as well as outings into the Colorado Springs community, especially on the warmer days. We’ll be gathering together in our theater on Thanksgiving to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade - a warm and national tradition for most households to cherish.
Being stuck inside can make staying active harder. You can’t always get outside as much to enjoy a daily walk or sit in the sun if the weather isn't ideal. Maintaining physical wellness and keeping up with fitness routines is another way we are fighting the lows the winter season can bring about. Exercise is key and can aid in alleviating symptoms of seasonal depression while improving mood and energy. Our games like balloon tennis and table soccer on the calendar aren’t just for fun, they help to maintain mental, emotional, and social health and wellness along with physical fitness.
Our in-house gourmet chef has cooked up a brilliant menu filled with the Thanksgiving favorites for our residents to enjoy. Pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and of course, turkey will be served to celebrate the holiday. Check out our community calendar to see how our assisted living and memory care residents are celebrating the holidays in our senior Colorado Springs retirement community.
