Summer is still here, and that means it’s time to have some fun in the sun! Here at Creekside Oaks Retirement Community, we have the most vibrant staff and residents ready to make this summer one to remember. Our wonderful, active 55+ community, coupled with our amazing California location, is sure to provide plenty of activities and entertainment this summer. Still stumped for what to do to stay entertained? Our expert team has compiled a list of must-do activities for our residents this summer!
Join An Exercise Class
One of the many things we pride ourselves on at Creekside Oaks is our abundant activities calendar, and along with that, our various exercise classes! From easy senior exercise classes, to balancing classes, lower body workouts, and even chair yoga, there is something for everyone! As it gets hotter outside, we can have you set up inside so you can still get in exercise without having to endure the heat. Consistent exercise is great for the mind and body. Just remember to hydrate before, after, and during any physical activity, and always listen to your body. Don’t do more than you can handle, and make sure to have fun while participating!
Get Your Sports Fix With Bean Bag Baseball
Another great way to stay active but also enjoy a little friendly competition is by joining bean bag baseball every Tuesday and Friday! Taking part in these games this summer is a great way to meet new people and enjoy something you may not do too often. Like many of our exercise classes, bean bag baseball is in the atrium, so don’t sweat the temperature outside (literally). You can stay cool and comfortable while still having fun with your fellow residents and friends!
Enjoy Our Beautiful Campus
While many of the activities we suggested are indoors, there is no denying that the grounds here at Creekside Oaks independent living in Folsom, CA are some of the most beautiful of any retirement community around. That is why we recommend spending some time outdoors and enjoying nature this summer. While it may be warmer, the weather in the Folsom area is beautiful year round, and in the summer wildlife is in full swing. We recommend grabbing a friend to enjoy bird watching, going for a walk, or even having a picnic or snack outside. If you do choose to get outdoors, don’t forget these essentials:
Participate in Our Walking Club
If you’re looking for other residents who are interested in getting outside regularly, we recommend joining our walking club! With consistent meetings weekly, this is a great way to stay active and spend time outdoors! Walking is great exercise, and is also a great way to catch up with other residents and friends. Summer is the perfect time to get outside early, which is why our club meets at 8:30am. This way, you get to enjoy all of the summer outdoor time, without having to worry as much about being out in the heat of the day. If this is something you might be interested in don’t forget the essentials we listed above to keep you comfortable and safe while outdoors!
With so much to do, your summer at Creekside Oaks senior apartments in Folsom, will be one of the best yet!
Sleep is an important--and often ignored--part of health. That's why we encourage our residents to have good sleep hygiene, which involves creating a good environment for restful, restorative sleep.
Try these tips for better sleep: - Keep your sleeping environment dark and free from noises - Stop using electronic devices at least 1 hour before bed, as the blue light emitted from screens can disrupt sleep - Keep your room between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit, which is proven to be the ideal sleep temperature
