In celebration of Mother's Day this Sunday May 8th, we reached out to our communities and asked them to share the best advice they could give as a mother, or words of wisdom they once received from their mother.
 
Mothers come in all different sizes, shapes, types and styles - they wear many different hats, and take on a wide variety of roles both within their family and within their personal lives. Moms often are a source of wisdom, insight, and comfort for their families, and for a lot of us, the words and wisdom our moms pass down can be some of the most life changing.

At Pacifica Senior Living, our communities have a wide range of weekly games and activities for residents to participate in. Here are some of the top games for seniors to help promote healthy brain activity, strengthen memory skills, and make connections with others.

Friendship can be one of the most important parts of life. Being able to connect, share, and experience life together can make everything richer, warmer and more meaningful. It can be challenging to make new friends - or even maintain friendships - as we age, but that is the time that connections with others can be the most significant. Seniors can feel isolated or secluded as they age, especially if they live alone, and that is why communities such ours at Pacifica Senior Living and the Meridian Communities are so important to ensuring seniors have a full and rich life.

Active 55+ communities are apartment and resort-style senior housing communities specifically designed for older adults seeking independent living without the hassle of home upkeep. These housing options allow residents to enjoy the benefits of luxury community living without worrying about the maintenance, costs, and chores associated with homeownership. There are a multitude of benefits to seniors interested in 55+ housing and for those who may need care in the future, and Pacifica Senior Living is the perfect option.

These communities feature single-family homes or newly renovated private apartments at affordable prices, helping seniors reduce living costs without decreasing their quality of life. These housing options are situated in prime locations near shopping centers, bustling neighborhoods, art districts, and beautiful landscapes to allow for the optimal living experience.

55+ residents tend to be active, sociable members of their community, and they love being able to get out and about in their neighborhood with friends and family. Pacifica Senior Living Calaroga Terrace, for example, is a gorgeous community in the heart of the Lloyd District of Portland, Oregon.

At Pacifica Senior Living, we know the importance of getting active and staying healthy, especially as you age. Keeping moving and staying fit is key to maintaining health in seniors, and there are many simple ways we encourage our residents to keep active. 

Moving for just ten minutes can get your blood pumping and is great for maintaining heart and vascular health. Increasing your heart rate during active intervals can decrease its overall rate over time, as well as lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. Increasing your blood flow can also work to keep your immune system strong and healthy, to help fight off sicknesses or common colds.
