When it gets cold outside in Florida, senior activities in winter can be limited. However, Summer’s Landing offers plenty of things to do in the winter, such as indoor activities, events, and even trips. We provide a variety of options for fun and help seniors stay connected with friends and family. Our senior living services are designed to keep your loved one engaged regardless of how cold it is outside.
Senior Activities in Winter at Summer’s Landing
Activities can include indoor gardening, yoga, Bingo, zoom calls, online church, arts and crafts, fitness, dining, and assisted living services. All activities are designed to keep seniors connected with other residents and family members. Although outdoor activities may be limited, there is plenty to do inside at Summer’s Landing.
While most people associate gardening with the Spring and Summer, some plants grow in the fall and winter. While some seniors can garden outside, others prefer to stay inside. We provide opportunities for gardening indoors during the coldest winter months.
Senior Dining Services
One of the most popular services we offer our residents are senior dining services. With a focus on health and wellness, we provide menus tailored to senior’s needs and health conditions. We prepare special meals during the winter months and holidays.
Holidays are special times at Summer’s Landing. Our entire staff gets involved in decorating the facilities and planning holiday activities. We coordinate events and trips during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. Families are welcomed to attend all events.
Hobbies and Crafts
There are plenty of senior activities in winter that keep everyone busy. Some popular arts and crafts courses and senior activities that we offer include:
- Painting, sketching, and drawing
- Pottery and ceramics
- Knitting, crocheting, embroidery
Seniors also have opportunities to learn a musical instrument, cook, or discover a new language. It is impossible to get bored with all the things to do in winter.
It is easy to want to cozy up in a blanket in the wintertime. However, fitness and exercise are important all year long. We provide an array of fitness programs, including aerobics, walking, yoga, and even weight training. Our staff is licensed and experienced in many forms of fitness.
Regardless of your loved one’s beliefs, many churches are offering online religious services. Experiencing spiritual and religious activities allows everyone to connect with God, reflect on gratitude, socialize with others who share the same beliefs, and spend time with family.
Not everyone at our senior care center has the opportunity to get out. The current COVID-19 pandemic has limited access in and out of the facility. In an effort to help seniors stay engaged with family and friends, we have created Zoom meetings. These are online video chats that allow seniors to spend time with others online. Zoom technology is easy to use. However, our staff can set up meetings for seniors who do not know how to utilize technology.
Regardless of age, everyone loves games. One of the most popular senior activities in winter is Bingo. This cherished game allows seniors to be social, provides healthy competition, and includes everyone. Nearly every senior and their family can play Bingo. Plus, there are awesome prizes in every game.
