When you think of retirement living options, if you’re picturing a boring atmosphere with few choices, you haven’t visited a modern senior living community. Today’s senior living residents are busy living a life of purpose and meaning—and having a whole lot of fun doing it!
To give you a better idea, imagine for a moment you are a resident of St. Mark Village. Here are just a few suggestions of how you could spend your day. (But remember, this is just the beginning!)
Mornings for senior living residents at St. Mark Village
Wake up to another beautiful day knowing there’s no to-do list to worry over. Instead, you get to choose what your day will be like. Busy? Quiet? A bit of both? It’s up to you. Your biggest decision might be deciding from the array of engaging activities and programs from which to choose.
You could always sleep in, but just thinking about the delicious pastries in St Mark’s Village Café and Bakery gets you up and moving. Along the way, greet neighbors out for an early walk or drop by the library to return a few books. Join friends for coffee and conversation. It feels good to start the day with a laugh! (That’s something senior living residents get to do often.)
Now comes the hard part: deciding what you would like to do next. Work in the garden? Attend a craft class? Maybe drop by the fitness center for a little healthy stretching, or cardio on a stationary bike. Exercise is so important for senior living residents and at St. Mark, we make it fun.
Weather permitting, you could opt for a few laps in the beautiful outdoor pool or soothe your muscles in our Jacuzzi. Maybe you have an appointment for a haircut in our salon. Being able to just walk down the hall for a trim is a great perk for our senior living residents. Everyone likes to look and feel their best! Then it might be back to your cozy apartment for a call with your grandchildren, a favorite program on television, or even a quick nap.
Lunchtime means great choices like homemade soups, fresh salads and sandwiches, and maybe even some locally made ice cream! When it comes to food, senior living residents at communities like St. Mark Village find it’s easy to treat yourself.
Afternoons are a delight at St. Mark Village
