From an evening at the theater, to cardio drumming, our residents are able to enjoy their lifelong interests and to learn new routines. As a win-win, these acitivities are fun and they help with cognitive and social skills.

Besides protecting your skin, you also have to make sure you’re taking care of your body in general, as well. In this post, you will find three ways seniors can work to protect their sensitive skin and bodies from the heat of the sun’s harmful rays.
