If you are thinking about retiring at one of the Memory Care communities near Pottstown, PA, you may ponder what day-to-day living looks like in these retirement communities. Wonder no more! Here is what a daily schedule of life in a memory care community is likely to look like.
Rise and Shine – Schedule in the Morning
Residents typically wake up at their own time and proceed to have breakfast with their peers in the dining room when they are ready to do so. Just like what you see in a restaurant, there are friendly service professionals stationed in the dining room and ready to take your orders. Coffee, tea, warmed bread and pastries and freshly cut fruits and a wide spread of other options are typically available for breakfast.
There are many activity options for you to choose from after your morning meal. Most memory care communities have large, beautiful walking grounds within their gated compounds so that you can have an outdoor experience and fresh air, and still stay safe. There are also group-based workout classes that are low-impact that you can choose from to keep yourself fit and healthy. Workout class options typically include yoga, water aerobics, and Tai Chi.
A Peak into the Schedule in the Afternoon
At the end of their workouts, the community is usually ready to have their lunch. They proceed back to the dining room for their lunch, usually with enthusiasm as their friends and peers are all there and excited to share about their day. Most lunch menus contain a variety of foods to ensure a healthy and balanced diet that is tasty and appetizing. Options like sandwiches, salads, and soups can be expected to be on the menu.
Memory care communities have a wide range of activities and clubs to engage you, keep you active, and stimulate your mind. For example, you can nurture the budding artist within you by exploring different art forms in the art studios. If you are into reading, the local book club in the memory care community would be a good source of recommendation for new books. You will have the chance to share new books and reviews on them, which makes for a fun communal experience. Memory care communities also organize many other new and ongoing activities to ensure that you have a wide range of options to choose from.
Winding Down in the Evening
After a busy day of engaging and fun-filled activities, I bet you are itching to share your adventures with your friends and family. The dining room serves an excellent spread. You can also choose to dine in private dining rooms instead if you have family and special guests to entertain.
You are free to rest and relax and pursue your own activities on your own time. Some attend evening clubs, and most memory care communities encourage and empower their community members to start and maintain their clubs and activity groups. Others may prefer to wind down the day early and head back to their apartments.
