Wellderly Week celebrates health and wellness for seniors through hobbies and activities. Wellderly Week is a great example of how the 8 Dimensions of Wellness tie into life at Melody Living.
This care model focuses on physical wellness, occupational wellness, emotional wellness, intellectual wellness, spiritual wellness, environmental wellness, social wellness, and financial wellness.
Melody Living encourages the continuation of lifelong hobbies and activities as well as creates new interests amongst residents.
Melody Living offers groups, clubs, outings, workouts, and events for residents of different abilities and always makes it a priority to cater to those abilities.
Independent living residents can enjoy trips to museums throughout the greater Colorado Springs area - perfect for our senior residents who enjoy exploring cultural venues.
In our community, residents have the opportunity to explore cuisine via our Foodies Committee where they regularly meet with our in-house chef to design the community’s dining menu, pick-up new reads through our Book Club, learn a new skill during an art class, embrace the outdoors by joining the Gardening Club, or get together with fellow residents to play games and make crafts on their own schedules.
For our seniors of any ability looking to be a bit more active, our partners at Paxxon Healthcare Services pop-in each week to lead exercise classes.
Senior residents at Melody Living Colorado Springs’ assisted living and memory care facility are able to engage in fun activities as well, including food tastings and chef demos with our in-house chef, tea parties for Mother’s Day, and other planned community gatherings.
We also focus on activities proven to help improve mental cognition and physical function such as trivia, jewelry making, puzzles, aerobics, coloring, and card games.
Both communities also benefit from therapy dog visits to promote emotional wellness. This is just a snapshot of how we work to promote the Eight Dimensions of Wellness in our community life.
While Melody Living celebrates senior residents' well-being all year long, Wellderly Week highlights and promotes the health benefits that come along with maintaining happiness and community in seniors’ lives and we’re thrilled to share that with you!
