Activities and Socialization
Activities and socialization are important for everyone, and at our assisted living center we make sure there are ample opportunities for everyone to socialize. Our full-time Activities Director is Martha Sheasgreen, who hails from Canada and has been with Windsor House Greenville since 2005. Her father is a resident of an assisted living facility in Toronto, and she has three children (all boys). Martha is “in charge of fun,” which actually does take some work. She plans each month’s activity calendar, soliciting suggestions and ideas for new things from our residents.
Martha says that while we are known as a Greenville, SC assisted living facility, she wants us to remember: “This is their home, and I want to plan things that the residents want to do; it isn’t my calendar of events, it’s theirs.” Typically, morning events are related to exercise, except for Thursday devotions. “We utilize two or three different exercise tapes to create some variety, but they are all a good workout.” Wednesdays and Thursdays we work in concert with the beauty shop to do manicures and hand massages part of the day. Afternoon events include BINGO (the favorite), along with crafts, children’s concerts, pet therapy, and personal errand time. We have a full church service on Sunday afternoon around 3:00pm, but also encourage families to maintain the resident’s membership and attendance in their local church congregation.
As you can see our residents have individual activities and a sense of fellowship here at Windsor House, plus they have many opportunities to engage in the Greenville community.For more information about our services and amenities, please contact any management team member by telephone, email or in person. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Activities are a vital part of the assisted living experience. Here at Windsor House we ensure that there are always fun things to do and people to enjoy these times with. Writer Kimberly Ripley observes, “Most activities planned for assisted living facilities are designed to encourage socialization. Scheduled reasons for people to get together and visit with one another create a healthy environment where friendships blossom and a certain comfort level is maintained. Some of these social activities include outings, ice cream socials, exercise sessions, game nights, Bingo, and dancing events.” To read Kimberly’s full article go here.
