It’s that time of year again, and our communities across the country are ramping up for America’s most watched sporting event - the Super Bowl! Football is a great sport supported by fans young and old, and is a great way to bring together families and friends from all generations.
At Pacifica Senior Living, we strive to offer a vibrant and engaging lifestyle. Throughout each of our communities, we have built an active and welcoming community full of events, activities, enriching programs, and social gatherings.
Activities and events are a great way for our residents to connect with one another, form bonds within the community, and even try something new! There is always something to do at Pacifica, and we make a point to offer a wide range of activities to suit everyone's preferences. From concerts to crafts, happy hour events, fundraisers, educational seminars, movie nights, and food fairs, we’re constantly gathering with one another and those in our community to spend quality time together.
Football Season is here, and everyone is getting excited about jumping back into the excitement and fun that comes along with supporting your favorite team. Across our communities, residents of Pacifica Senior Living are getting into the spirit as well. From watch parties to rallies, decorations to festive snacks, there are so many ways to make this football season extra special. Whether you are a fan of the NFL, AFC, college football, or have a favorite men’s or women’s football team, getting extra festive is a great way to turn up the fun on game day.
Technology that is aimed at an aging population is a growing market. Senior focused or elder focused tech is designed to help make the lives of older adults simpler, more connected, and more fun. Whether you or your loved one uses tech for engagement, connecting with others or practical tasks like healthcare management, having devices and programs that are designed to be easily used and understood can help bridge the gap between the older generations and new technological advancements.
South Florida is full of a wide variety of activities, events, eateries and sights to take in. Of Florida's 18.7 million population, nearly 3 million falls into the senior bracket. Its year-round warm weather, beautiful beaches, relatively flat geography, and easy going lifestyle have attracted older adults to the state for years.
Pacifica Senior Living has 12 different communities in Florida, and growing. Our residents love being able to enjoy the many great attractions nearby their communities, soak up some of the gorgeous weather, and take in the natural beauty of the state. Living in or moving to South Florida means getting to enjoy these many attractions for yourself. Some of our resident's favorite fun things to do in South Florida Include:
There are so many fun intergenerational activities that seniors and their grandkids can enjoy together. If you have grandkids that will be visiting loved ones in a senior living community, it can be helpful to plan some activities for everyone to enjoy together. We have compiled a list of some of the best intergenerational activities for grandparents and their grandkids to enjoy to make some lasting memories together.
While we love visiting with our loved ones, family members, and friends, interacting with individuals with later-stage dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease can have its hurdles. When memories and speech skills are impaired, our loved one may have difficulty communicating with us in the same ways they used to. But there are still lots of ways you can make your time with your loved one meaningful, and ensure they have the best possible quality of life.
San Diego is an amazing city - and county - in Southern California with so much to see and do. From sunny weather to beautiful beaches, impressive restaurants and bars, and a wide range of attractions, “America’s Finest City” is a bustling hub of fun. We know how important it is that residents moving into Active 55+ and Independent Living communities are still able to stay connected to their city and community and enjoy sightseeing and all the attractions the area has to offer.
As we age, getting around can become more difficult, while some might opt to continue driving, many older adults decide to stop driving or give up their license for a variety of reasons - be it visibility, mobility issues, disabilities, or simply not wanting to deal with the upkeep and cost of a vehicle and the responsibilities that come with it.
But just because they no longer drive doesn’t mean they don’t want to be able to get around with ease. Ensuring our residents feel a strong sense of independence and freedom is important to us at Pacifica, and a core part of the services that we offer in our communities.
