Senior living communities are not all created equal. While each assisted living and memory care community’s design and layout play a big part in creating a Life in Harmony for residents, so do the staff. One of staff members, Danielle Luna, who has been a part of the team for years, plays a huge role in ensuring residents are experiencing wellness in all dimensions. Danielle is our Life Enrichment Director and is the mastermind behind many of the activities and programs offered on a daily basis.
She makes it her top priority to work with residents directly to learn more about what events and experiences they would enjoy and incorporates them creatively into our monthly community calendar while working simultaneously with other key staff to ensure a robust program is set in place.
Some of this month’s creative and safe activities included a special celebration, honoring Read Across America Week featuring fun Dr. Seuss-themed activities like Green Eggs and Ham served up fresh in our Bistro, Cat in the Hat showcased in our onsite Theater, Dr. Seuss crafts, and of course it wouldn’t be complete without a visit from the Cat in the Hat herself!
Coming up for the rest of this month, residents and staff can look forward to St. Patrick’s Day-themed events, like Wear Green Day, a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the lucky Snack Cart with St. Paddy’s Surprise Cookies. Residents can also enjoy physical fitness opportunities, mentally stimulating puzzles, trivia and crosswords as well as an upcoming Ice Cream Party cart.
Whether a resident prefers more internally-focused activities like crafts or movie nights or enjoys socializing during baking classes or parades, there really is something for everyone to enjoy, and that’s just how it should be in our opinion. We truly believe in creating a community driven by residents, for residents. To see more of what our team is up to on a daily basis, be sure to follow us on Facebook!
