Engaging Activities for Memory Care Residents

Engaging Activities for Memory Care Residents

The Inspired Living Memory Care Program includes both personal care services and a range of engaging activities for memory care residents that enhance social connections, physical and intellectual stimulation they need to thrive in a memory care setting.

Activities Tailored to The Senior

Our Resident Engagement Director is in charge of creating a full calendar of events and activities each week, designed to promote the six dimensions of wellness. The activities change regularly, and the goal is to ensure each week includes activities that are:

  • Purposeful
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Spiritual
  • Intellectual

Because each resident’s needs and abilities are different, our Resident Engagement Director strives to ensure the activities chosen each week cover a full spectrum of interests, mobility levels and cognitive ability levels, giving every resident the chance to participate in something they’ll enjoy.

Some of the engaging activities for memory care residents we offer include:

This Day In History

A purposeful activity to stimulate the mind and spark discussions. Residents learn about important historical events.

Read Aloud Readers Club

An intellectual activity where residents read engaging stories, this club offers both entertainment and mental stimulation. Our activities director also arranges virtual travel activities, helping residents to broaden their horizons and learn about new places.

Activities with Grace Baptist Church

Spiritual residents have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities run in unison with local churches.

Reminiscence

Our reminiscence-focused activities promote emotional well-being. They include songs and crafts allowing residents to look back joyfully at key periods of their lives.

Trivia and Game Nights

Friendly social events with a touch of competitiveness, residents have the opportunity to take part in a variety of quizzes and game nights each week. From card games to hangman, there’s something for all tastes.

Exercise Sessions

Physical activity is just as important as mental and social activity, and we have active sessions catering to all levels of mobility. From chair yoga and pool noodle hockey to more traditional group exercise sessions, there’s something for everyone.

A Vibrant Community

Every senior in our community has a role to play in making it what it is. The more outgoing members have the opportunity to become Welcome Ambassadors who greet new residents and help them settle in and make new friends. Those who prefer a quieter time in their retirement years will find themselves in good company too, and can spend their days reading, doing arts and crafts, cooking or pursuing other activities.

We understand that some seniors find the idea of transitioning into a memory care community a little intimidating. Our goal is to offer a true community experience where seniors are among friends and benefit from stimulating activities and attentive care to help them age with dignity.
