Life Enrichment Programs at Mount Prospect Senior Living: Enhancing Quality of Life for Seniors

Life enrichment programs for seniors are a cornerstone of living a happy, healthy lifestyle as an older adult. Social engagement and physical activity are both part of senior living activities for very important reasons. Seniors who interact socially not only have the opportunity to live a higher quality of life, but social interaction also presents important health benefits for seniors. These include:

  • Reduced risk of dementia
  • Reduced risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular issues
  • Reduced risk of depression and anxiety
  • Improved mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved memory recall

Senior living communities, like Mount Prospect Senior Living, understand the benefits of socializing and provide fun, creative ways for residents to enjoy their friends and neighbors.

At Mount Prospect Senior Living, recent senior living activities have brought fun and laughter to residents, family and friends. In September, a visit to Sonny Acres Pumpkin Farm gave residents a chance to have fun in the fresh air, go for a train ride and find their perfect fall pumpkin.

On a trip to the botanical gardens, residents enjoyed the plants and flowers, while sharing a day of sunshine with friends and neighbors. The fun for seniors continued with a red carpet happy hour! Residents dressed in their best red carpet looks and attended a happy hour to enjoy delicious food and drinks.

A September Luau added to the month’s fun and festivities. The menu was mouthwatering, and the residents loved having a visit by Tina and the Barefoot dancers! To keep up with all the fun and festivities at Mount Prospect Senior Living, follow us on Facebook!
