How This Dunwoody Senior Community is Preparing for an Awesome Autumn


All-Inclusive Senior Living Means a Full Calendar of Fall Fun

In Georgia, it’s easy to forget that fall technically starts in September. Average daily temperatures hover around 77 degrees, and swimming pool season never really ends on Labor Day. But those lingering summer vibes haven’t stopped Dunwoody Pines Retirement Community from preparing a fun-filled calendar of fall activities for its residents.

It’s no secret that football, tailgates, and fall go hand in hand. So to kick off the first day of fall on September 23, Dunwoody Pines hosted a Visiting Nurse Presents event, which focused on FootballTailgate Party Games & Snacks.

Dunwoody Pines residents also love a good card or board game, so the staff at the community makes sure to organize plenty of opportunities for friends to get together to play. In just the first week of autumn, the activities calendar included multiple meetups for Mahjongg, Bridge, Bingo, and Rummikub. And every Wednesday and Saturday, the community gets together for Jeopardy.

While summer may be the season for blockbuster movies, Dunwoody Pines does not plan to stop gathering for movie nights or matinees just because fall is here. Every single day, residents can meet their neighbors for a movie at both 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. And if they are feeling like getting in on the action, residents can challenge each other to video games like Wii Bowling every Tuesday.

But don’t let the board games, video games, and movies fool you—Dunwoody Pines residents are staying active this fall, too. On Mondays, residents can join in for Cardio Exercise. They can also enjoy Zumba every other Wednesday and a 15-minute Ab Blast class on Thursdays. They can even meet up for a friendly game of balloon volleyball. And on Sunday afternoons, the community’s Walking Club meets in the facility’s Bistro area at 2:00 p.m.

This fall, Dunwoody Pines will also continue its weekly tradition of community outings, which includes a special activity and lunch at a different local eatery each week. The activities calendar will also include special events each week, such as a Dojo Karate Performance and PaperFortune Cookie Making. And, in honor of the Jewish tradition of eating apples and honey on Rosh Hashanah, residents can also participate in a honey tasting with apples on September 30.

If specialized, themed activities are not to residents’ taste, they can always meet up with their neighbors more informally. Each Monday, Dunwoody Pines hosts a “Coffee and Chat” in the Bistro area of the community, where residents can enjoy a warm cup of coffee and some conversation with their neighbors. And on the second Saturday of the month, residents can cuddle and play with their adorable furry friends when the therapy pets come to visit.

Residents can also take advantage of the slightly cooler fall weather and gather in Dunwoody Pines’ beautiful outdoor seating areas. Or, if the autumn chill becomes too much to handle, residents can simply choose to meet indoors over any meal of the day with the community’s 24/7 Dining experience. They can also meet up with their neighbors to get their hair done at the community’s hair salon, get in a workout at the community’s gym, or enjoy some reading at the library or computer center.
