Have a Stress-Free Fall At Transitional Assisted Living in Cincinnati

Enjoy fall even more by reducing extra stress with these five tips!


Fall is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the crisp air and bright foliage. Our all-inclusive transitional assisted living community near Cincinnati, Ohio, Central Parke, is an excellent place to live stress-free, with activities that keep your loved one engaged, healthy and happy while surrounded by neighbors who share their interests. At Central Parke Memory Care and Transitional Assisted Living, we combine person-centered care with a robust life enrichment program to empower our residents and improve their quality of life.

Take Time To Relax And Be Mindful

As the seasons change, it’s a great time to reflect and refresh your routine. So, try setting some time aside in the morning or afternoon to reflect on your day and assess what brings your life joy. While there may be some tasks we can’t avoid, like doctor appointments, we can try to bring more happiness into our lives by creating more room for things we do enjoy. At Central Parke, we host weekly activities, including mental activities from brain teasers to music parties. Depending on your mood, you can choose from a wide variety of relaxing mental exercises or social exercises – there is something for everyone!

Move Your Body For Improved Mood

Exercise is proven to release endorphins, improving one’s mood and strengthening bones and muscles. Since staying active provides many benefits, we offer a variety of low-impact exercise opportunities for our residents, such as group walks, pool aquatics, and balance classes! We also offer other social activities that are a great mental boost and that keep you moving your body, like dance classes. Our residents’ health and happiness is a priority for us and we can’t wait to see what you choose!

Clean Your Space For A Reset

The beautiful fall weather in Mason and Cincinnati OH provides the perfect opportunity for opening your window and enjoying the fresh air. Use the turn of the season as an indication to freshen up your space and do a deep clean. While tidying up your space, try opening up the window and spraying a fall scent to really brighten up your space. Orange and sandalwood scents are known for their calming effects and are great fall scents. If you’re a fan of potpourri, we have this potpourri crock pot recipe that incorporates oranges, cinnamon, rosemary, and cloves for a relaxing and in-season mood-lifting scent!

A Good Diet

Researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago have evidence that eating certain types of food, and avoiding others may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by as much as 53 percent! This is why Central Parke has adopted the MIND Diet for our residents’ meals. This diet breaks down its recommendations into ten brain-healthy food groups a person should eat and five “unhealthy food groups” to avoid. We believe there’s some truth to “you are what you eat” since they’ve found that the MIND Diet has been proven to foster brain health, which can improve mood and delay cognitive decline. While we believe you should indulge every once in a while with one of your favorite Fall treats, you’ll find nutritious meals available to leave you stress-free throughout the day.
