Villa Hermosa SRG
Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."
Villa Hermosa took our normally busy week and divided it up into themed days that support our Zest Life Enrichment program! Mind,body, and soul are our daily goals when designing activities. The themed days took each component and highlighted how they work together to bring us a full lifestyle! Our seven themed days were: health fair and lecture series event kick off, mind day, body day, soul day, relax and recharge day, fuel for life day, and celebrate zest day! Each day highlighted activities ranging from exercise classes that challenge the body, incorporate the mind, and feed the soul with fun! We also had intelectual speakers such as doctors, therapists, fitness experts and nutritionists. We also played games to fight cognitive decline and promote social interaction in team settings! We also had cooking demonstrations and hosted a special breakfast that also encouraged new social connections with both neighbors and staff.
