How Residents Can Enjoy Summer at Our Rio Grande Retirement Home

Make The Most Of Sunny Days at the All-Inclusive Brook Ridge Community


You may have wondered, what kind of activities do retirement communities near me have to offer? Well, here at Brook Ridge, the answer is all kinds! From intellectual stimulation to relaxation to moving and grooving, our Rio Grande retirement home has enjoyable activities for residents every season of the year. In fact, our plethora of events and exciting classes make our residents never want to leave the community! We have so many activity offerings that we could talk about forever–but we’ll just touch on some of the ones that our residents can join in on for an enjoyable summer.

Stay Cool at the Pool

Picture this: it’s a warm summer day and you and your friends just ate a delectable breakfast. Afterward, you grab a yummy, cool drink and head to the pool. You chat the day away with not a worry in the world, going in for a dip in the pool to cool off. It sounds too good to be true…but it isn’t! One of our residents’ favorite amenities at Brook Ridge is our swimming pool (and hot tub)! Our residents love to hang out at the pool and beat the summer heat–with proper sunscreen and attire of course!

Engage in Friendly Competition

At Brook Ridge, we offer a wide variety of opportunities for residents to engage in some friendly competition. Some of the competitive games that we offer regularly include Wii Bowling Tournaments, Billiards, Cribbage, Pokeno and Hearts. Most of the time, the game winner gets bragging rights. But in some cases, like money bingo, the winner gets a physical prize. However, we know everyone’s a winner at Brook Ridge!

Move Your Body

Get up and at ‘em with our fun and engaging group exercise opportunities! At our independent retirement community, we make physical activity exciting by making it a social experience, and we are always spicing things up. In the warmer months, we like to take the exercises outside when we can–think sunrise yoga. Here are a few of our exercise opportunities that residents can enjoy:

  • Zumba–a cardio fitness program that involves Latin-inspired dance
  • Happy Bones–exercises designed to help protect and improve your bone health
  • Yoga–connecting poses to keep your mind and body fit for a healthy lifestyle

Relax and Reconnect

With all the fun and exciting summer activities we offer, it’s important to take some time to rest, relax and engage in therapeutic activities. At Brook Ridge, we know the importance of balance, which is why we offer a wide range of activities. Here are some of our more relaxing offerings:

  • Take a trip to the salon to get your nails done or a new haircut
  • Join the knitting club to create a piece of art or clothing to enjoy
  • Practice mindfulness during our meditation sessions
  • Take part in our easy listening sessions and enjoy soothing tunes
  • Play with furry friends during pet therapy

Now that you know some of the fun activities our community has to offer, you must be thinking, it doesn’t get much better than that, does it? At Brook Ridge, one of the top 55 and over communities near McAllen, Texas, we ensure that our residents have ample activities to choose from not only in the warm summer months, but year-round. If you’re looking for a retirement community where you can enjoy fun activities while creating genuine friendships, you’ve come to the right place.

From swimming laps to enjoying ice cream socials, you can always find our Rio Grande retirement community full of busy seniors–you have to come see for yourself. And you can! Schedule a tour and visit us at Brook Ridge, and we’ll be sure to show you all the activities we have to offer.
