How To Keep Your Mind and Body Refreshed This Fall At Our Senior Apartments In Oregon
Fall Is A Great Time For Self-Care
With spring showers and summer heat fading away, fall is the perfect time to get outside and explore Oregon. At Garden Way in Eugene and Summerfield Estates in Tigard, we believe in keeping your mind and body refreshed during any season. Both of these communities are near the city of Portland, known as one of the best bike-friendly cities for many years–staying active is a way of life in Oregon. Whether it’s keeping an activity calendar packed for our residents or hosting chef-prepared meals that are well-balanced and delicious, there’s much to offer at both of our communities in Oregon. So, here are some suggestions for staying refreshed at our Oregon senior retirement living apartments this Fall.
Stimulate Your Body and Mind
Sunshine Retirement Living Communities offer a life enrichment program that includes daily wellness and fitness classes, weekly group excursions, and a robust activity calendar packed with social, educational, creative, and spiritual options. So no matter what hobbies you have, there’s something for everyone. For example, we offer ice cream socials, cookouts, mixers, live band music, movie nights, museum outings in Portland, educational seminars, and more! In addition, our professional and caring staff is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. So, if you have any questions on what activities are best for you, we are here to help.
Nourish Your Body and Mind
At Garden Way and Summerfield Estates, we believe you are what you eat. That’s why we offer a 24/7 restaurant-style meal service that keeps memory care in mind. Our dedicated kitchen staff is always looking for new ways to incorporate seasonal, fresh ingredients into our recipes. Our residents enjoy both new and exciting meals along with some of their classic favorites. And our Chefs are always happy to accommodate special dietary needs, like low sodium, sugar-free, gluten-free, and more. Our delicious, nutritious meals are the perfect way to fuel up for the day while enjoying a tasty get-together with your neighbors.
Schedule and Maintain Your Doctor Appointments
Your health is a priority not only to you, but to us too! Keeping up with your medical appointments ensures that your mind and body are in tip-top shape to feel refreshed this fall. To help you manage your appointments, we have professional care teams and third-party medical professionals available to residents. So, there’s no need to wait for your medical appointments. If you need transportation to a doctor’s appointment, we offer that too!
Practicing mindfulness is key to keeping your mind refreshed! It can help regulate emotions, decrease stress, reduce anxiety, combat depression, and enhance our focus. Being mindful can help you be more appreciative and understanding of the world around you. At our retirement communities, we offer a variety of meditation and other group mindfulness classes to choose from. Plus, if you want to get your body moving, you can join in on some yoga fun!

Autumn means colder weather, and that could also mean flu season too! It is important to stay warm and safe this season, especially because family and friends are traveling for the holidays!
If you are visiting someone or plan to, make sure you are layering your clothes or dressing appropriately for the weather, staying on top of your health by eating nutritious food, staying active, and getting proper rest. Don't forget to wash your hands and utilize hand sanitizer in public spaces!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and that means food and family! People have different ways to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Some plan out a list, down to the activities and conversations that can take place at the dinner table. These people also take out the recipe books and follow the directions to a tee! Others may take the go-with-the-flow approach and wing it! That includes recipes too.
Which group are you in? No matter your approach, we hope that this holiday season is a fulfilling one!
