TIP of the WEEK: Community Based Activities
October 14, 2016
While there are many benefits to any kind of exercise, participating in community based activities has the added benefit of inclusion and relationship building. Three of our residents from the adult program have been golfing at a nearby golf course for the past several months. Not only have their golf games improved but they have also made strong connections with the employees and fellow golfers. This activity has given them the opportunity to get exercise, learn a new sport, gain a tremendous amount of confidence, and make community connections.
We are all looking forward to seeing them on Monday at our 7th annual golf tournament at Ocean Edge Resort. Good luck gentlemen!
