At Mariposa, we’ve implemented lifestyle enrichment programs that are designed to enhance the quality of living for each resident while maximizing their health and longevity. Unlike standard retirement homes, where staff members will primarily “look after” residents, our program is full of exciting events which bring joy and entertainment to members while enhancing both their physical and cognitive function.
About Our Lifestyle Enrichment Programs
Our lifestyle enrichment programs consist of activities and events which the community offers that are designed to support the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs of each member. They are crafted to promote personal creativity and growth while keeping retirees engaged. While many residents find these programs fun and entertaining, the primary goal is to boost their quality of life.
Benefits of Having Lifestyle Enrichment Programs in Your Retirement Community
There are a number of key benefits that our lifestyle enrichment programs offer and these include:
- The Fostering of Social Connections
Research has consistently shown that many aging retirees live alone and are lonely and this contributes to a variety of mental and physical afflictions. Our programs are designed to build strong relationships between members so they feel a sense of connectedness both to each other and the group, which lowers stress, anxiety, and depression.
- Maintain an Active Lifestyle
Too many retirees lead a sedentary lifestyle where they are not getting enough exercise. This combined with advancing age leads to various adverse conditions involving the joints, muscles, heart, and cardiovascular system. By partaking in our lifestyle enrichment programs elders will become much stronger and sharper than others in their age group.
- Preserve and Strengthen Cognitive Function
Many retirees suffer a loss of cognitive function as they age, with the most severe cases being in those who develop dementia or Alzheimer’s. It is for this reason that our lifestyle enrichment programs heavily promote activities that encourage participants to use their mind, reasoning, and memory abilities, as this keeps the brain sharp and includes things such as board games, puzzles, reading, and games.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
People of all ages are under the misconception that aging has to be a time of suffering and decline, but it doesn’t have to be this way. The manner in which you view and live your life will partially determine the outcome.
Those that want to maintain their strength, vitality, and cognitive function for as long as possible can relocate to Mariposa where they will be tended to by trained experts and therapists who can maximize their physical and mental potential, allowing them to live an active, enjoyable lifestyle for as long as they live.
Why Choose Mariposa’s Retirement Community?
Our community is vastly superior to other senior living communities and is often compared to a vacation resort. Our staff doesn’t just look after residents; they assist them in overcoming any physical limitations so that they can enjoy the most fulfilling lifestyle possible.
