Each of our communities has a full event and activities calendar designed to engage residents. Community Activity Directors have a true passion for the work creating and leading interactions that are designed for seniors with varying interests and care needs. They keep their communities fun and active with exercise classes, social hours, excursions, live entertainment and more.
“I believe that a great activity department is the soul of the community,” said South Pointe Assisted and Independent Living’s Activity Director Elizabeth Mason.
Elizabeth enjoys creating events for residents that celebrate their lives—past, present, and future. She has put together anniversary parties for residents celebrating many years of marriage, planned exciting holiday events with live musical guests, and treated residents to a day of glamour and photographs.
“Activities are more than just fun and games— though there is a lot of that! It is about happiness. If your residents are happy, your community is happy,” she explains.
Recently, Elizabeth put together a day of glamour; residents were treated to a Mary Kay makeover, the attention of a hairdresser, and styled photographs. Both men and women participated in the photo shoot.
Elizabeth provided two back drops, several hats, feather boas, fur collars, gloves, and plenty of jewelry for residents to use if they wished. Many of South Pointe’s female residents particularly enjoyed dressing up.
Participating residents were proud to see their photos up on the wall, giving them opportunity to share with family members.
“I was going to take the photos down after Valentine’s Day, but the residents requested that I leave them up until the end of the month!” Elizabeth exclaimed.
