Get Your Head In The Game
At The Haven, we love to get our game on. Enjoying some friendly competition with residents is a great way to have fall fun and beat the cold. Plus, it’s a perfect opportunity to build connections with others and make memories. At The Haven, you can often find our residents enjoying these games:
Tic Tac Toe

Crafting is always a good idea! At The Haven at North Hills, we offer plenty of opportunities for our residents to get their creative juices flowing, express themselves and get in the spirit of the season.

The endless opportunities for socialization is one of the most significant benefits of being a resident at The Haven, as seniors are often more susceptible to feeling isolated and lonely, which can lead to depression and other negative health outcomes. Living in our community means your loved one will always be in good company. They can interact with other people their age and find others with similar interests. One of the ways we promote socialization and engagement among residents is by, well, hosting socials! Here are just a few of the fun social themes we’ve hosted so far this fall:
Hot mulled cider
Tots & Guac
Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate
Coffee Ice Cream
Cold weather can make staying active more difficult, since many people enjoy getting exercise by going for a walk, gardening, or enjoying other outdoor activities. Luckily we offer fun and exciting ways for our residents to stay active indoors such as:
Music In Motion
These are just a few of the fun activities that we have to offer at The Haven–not just for the fall season, but all year long. Some other indoor activities residents can partake in include baking, visiting the salon, enjoying a good book, or going to spiritual and religious events.
One of our main goals at The Haven is to keep residents happy by providing plenty of exciting opportunities. Please come by for a tour to learn about all we have to offer for your loved one. Contact our friendly staff today!
