10 Activities Seniors Can Enjoy at an Assisted Living Facility

Contrary to popular belief, the best assisted living communities in Shreveport offer residents so many activities beyond the traditional ones you can expect. As an example, here are 10 activities that residents at The Glen enjoy:

  1. Chair Yoga

Did you know that you can do yoga in a chair? This form of yoga is great for older people, as it lets you practice poses using the support of a chair. If you struggle with flexibility issues or are recovering from an injury, this is a great way to get your exercise and improve the connection between your mind and body.

  1. Art Exhibits

As acclaimed Brazilian artist Romero Britto once said, “art is too important not to share.” We agree, which is why we share creations from local artists each month, which you’re free to enjoy by yourself or with your fellow neighbors.

  1. Educational Speakers

Many of us are life-long learners. We regularly bring in educational speakers who discuss relevant and timely topics. This allows you to stay updated about events happening in the world and use these topics as springboards for discussion in the community.

  1. Bean Bag Baseball

Think of bean bag baseball as a mix between real baseball and bean bag toss (aka “cornhole”). Perfect for older adults, this form of baseball is as easy as throwing a bean bag and you can sit down while it’s not your turn.

  1. Live Performances

Enjoy opera singers and music? You’ll enjoy both at The Glen, where we have a revolving series of featured live performances for you and your fellow neighbors to enjoy. Gather together and listen to the sweet melodies of yesteryear.

  1. Bocce Ball

A game that has been celebrated by young and old throughout history, bocce ball is as fun as it is accessible. Coming June 2021, we will have bocce ball courts at The Glen for all residents to enjoy. This game is a great low-impact way to get your exercise.

  1. Relaxing Walks

Unwind at the end of your day on one of our serene walking paths, which will be completed in 2021. Enjoy the beauty of our well-maintained grounds and smell the blooming flowers in our community. 

  1. Spa or Salon Day

Perhaps you need a little pampering time? We have both a salon and a spa for you to enjoy, each with a variety of services.

  1. Bible Study Group

We support your spiritual life in addition to your physical and emotional well being. Join a Bible study group with your friends, participate in worship services or sing hymns with a group.

  1. Shopping

You don’t even have to leave campus to enjoy a shopping experience, thanks to The Village General Store and Gift Shop. If there isn’t an item available, our staff will help you find it.

These are just a few activities that residents of assisted living communities in Shreveport can enjoy. To learn more about The Glen, call us at 318-798-3500 to get your questions answered or schedule a virtual tour.
