Every day in a retirement community is action-packed so you can live a healthy, fulfilling life. While some nursing homes in Houston, TX make their residents adhere to strict schedules, our community gives residents complete freedom over how they want to spend their days. We believe that residents benefit from the mental stimulation variety brings, which contributes to a more enriching life. Let us see what a typical day in retirement communities could look like.
Residents choose when to wake up, depending on the amount of rest they would like. Upon waking, professional caregivers will be available should you need any assistance. You will then be treated to a nutritious breakfast prepared by our Sensations Dining team. Look forward to three courses of diverse dishes every day, be it familiar comfort foods or a spread of global cuisines. Dietary restrictions and health conditions will be factored in to create a personalized menu for you. After breakfast, you can enjoy some chill time while savoring newspapers and coffee in the bistro.
Through our Dimensions Health and Fitness program, we try to cater to the spiritual lives of residents. Hence, there are chapel sessions every Sunday morning.
Residents typically enjoy lunch, connect with friends at events or self-explore around the community in the afternoon. While lunch is commonly served in the dining room, there are many day trips for you to have a meal in a nearby town. Houston offers many gastronomic experiences, and expect to dine at salad bars, sushi restaurants and BBQ joints. There are also organized shopping trips to Walmart or Trader Joe’s. Alternatively, arrange your own transport into town with our complimentary Connections Transportation Services if you want to run errands or meet up with family members.
Mental exercise is vital for seniors, so our Celebrations Activities and Events team plans many activities to suit different interests. For the more physically active, there is chair volleyball and strength classes. For creative exploration, you could try mandala art. Other events are designed with the intent of helping residents’ bond, including memory-sharing sessions and social trivia hours.
What makes our community extra unique is that there is a monthly meeting where residents pitch the outings and activities they would like, imparting you with a lot of autonomy and flexibility.
As you wind down after a fulfilling day, take a minute to relax in our landscaped gardens or elegant terraces. Bask in the pleasant atmosphere of warm Texan weather as you read a book or chit-chat with friends. Every month, themed dinner parties are organized for residents to come together as a community. Some weekends may also feature dance parties with live music by local artists.
For a more low-key night, you could play bingo and board games, or have a movie night in our Starlite in-house cinema which has daily screenings. You could also take the initiative to organize a potluck with your friends and spend the night away with good food and conversation.
