When people think about senior living, it’s common for most people to imagine lousy food, cramped living conditions, strict guidelines, and a boring lifestyle without engaging activities. At HarborChase, we strive to change the mindset in traditional independent living, and set the bar higher with our luxurious senior living opportunities!
In today’s society, many people disregard haircuts as a means of brightening up someone’s day. Contrary to popular belief, a quick cut and style can revitalize an individual’s mood and help promote confidence in the way they look. Creating unique hairstyles can be just as fun and soothing for seniors as it is for anyone else! At HarborChase, we strive to help you help the senior in your life feel confident in themselves and ensure they are not afraid to display their personality!
When the senior in your life gets a new pet, it’s an exciting and heartwarming occasion. Your loved one will now have a new friend to create a bond with; bringing meaningful memories and trusted companionship.
Although having a pet is fantastic, you’re going to have to help your loved one train the pet to learn where in the house they are allowed, how to walk properly on a leash, and other routines they will have to adjust to! At HarborChase, we know that training a pet isn’t always the easiest task, so we’ve decided to share a few helpful tips that you can share with your loved one to help them along the way!
At HarborChase Senior Living, we value health and fitness. We also know that as a senior, exercising and staying healthy isn’t exactly easy. There are many exercises that seniors may have done earlier in their lives that they are unable to do once they grow older. Each of our independent and assisted living communities throughout the country focus on exercise and activities meant specifically for older adults. These exercises can vary in difficulty and effectiveness because the capabilities of each senior can be different from one another. Although the specific exercises may vary, there are clear categories that each activity falls into.
“You’re only as old as you feel.” There is some truth behind this classic phrase. As we age, it can be easy to settle down and become sedentary. Whether it is due to pain, health problems, or balance issues, some seniors find themselves avoiding exercise altogether. As you age, being active can largely impact your health.
We love to celebrate senior living at HarborChase, and that is why we strongly believe it is important for your loved one to feel wanted, appreciated, and most importantly, healthy. Seniors often feel that conserving an active life mentally and physically can be laborious, so we take pleasure in showing them exciting, assisted living activities that are not only fun, but extremely beneficial to their health.
Gardening is a very accommodating activity, with proven health benefits, but it is often overlooked by comparison to other hobbies. Our diverse activity programs for seniors and our daily scheduled calendar includes gardening, as this healthy, and physically stimulating activity can be modified for each individual. At HarborChase, we aim for our residents to be happy, healthy, and stimulated daily.
