Wellmore of Daniel Island: For 2021's Active Aging Week we focused on creating experiences for our residents that are outside of their normal activity routine and experiences that highlight our beautiful city of Charleston, SC during the month of October. Once experience in particular was renting out a local ferry boat and taking a ride through the Charleston harbor. We had assisted living residents on this trip and they were able to accompany residents in wheelchairs, walkers, etc.! It's great to enable experiences that focus on what our residents CAN do, not what they can't do. Most of our residents are not from the Charleston area so they really enjoyed learning about the city via boat!
