Christmastime is truly the most wonderful time of the year in Alberta. The crisp blue skies seem to go on forever, topping off the amazing snow-covered homes. Every time you walk outside, there’s a taste in the air that says winter. And Christmas. You can almost smell the eggnog and turkey.
Getting outside to join in some amazing Christmas community activities is one way for a senior living in a retirement community to stay active, have fun, and be an integral part of the community. As much fun as it is to decorate your tree and hang the stocking, you want to get outside and join the rest of Airdrie in celebrating the holiday.
One great activity to share with the rest of the people in the retirement home is to lead them on a carolling trip. The sound of a beautiful Christmas carol filling the air will make everyone feel brighter (even if the weather is getting chillier) and it’s a great way to make new friends, get some exercise, and have fun. Since everyone knows the words, it’s a great chance to show off your amazing pipes.
You also can’t forget the Airdrie Festival of Lights. Nose Creek Park is the home to these magical light displays. This something you don’t want to miss. And since it’s just a short drive down Main Street, you know the residents at The Hamlets at Cedarwood Station will be checking it out.
While you’re there, how about some ice skating? More active seniors may want to strap on their skates and get out onto the rink. It’s not the NHL, but we’re sure that you can still get from one side of the rink to another. A nice casual, free skate is just what the doctor ordered to keep you feeling fit and happy.
