More and more seniors are discovering the rewards of finding a new hobby or rediscovering a pleasurable craft from their past. The difficulty isn't finding a craft to pursue, it's trying to decide which one to try because there are so many choices.
Many crafts are suitable for a range of abilities. At Olu's Center, seniors can choose the ones they find the most comfortable and enjoyable.
One of the joys of getting a bit older is having the time to putter around in the garden.
Gardening is Americaís favorite leisure outdoor activity, enjoyed by more than 78 million people, according to the National Gardening Association. Our gardening program provides fresh produce and herbs that are often used in our daily meals.
Whatever stage of the estate planning process seniors may be in, Olu's Center will provide seniors with the information that they need to make informed decisions. We have the trained and experiences professionals available to help seniors get all their questions answered.
As seniors grow older, an active lifestyle is more important than ever. Regular exercise can help boost energy, maintain a seniorís independence, and manage symptoms of illness or pain. Exercise can even reverse some of the symptoms of aging. And not only is exercise good for the body, itís also good for mind, mood, and memory.
Field trips are exciting as any other activities. Taking field trips and getting outside the four walls is a creative teaching/social method that takes seniors out of the familiar environment and allows them to experience new things. Whether it involves a trip to an out-of-town aquarium or a half-day escapade to the local park field trips are highly anticipated events.
Based on the theory that good writing and storytelling are keys to a healthy mind, these workshops enliven memories and involve seniors in a stimulating group activity. Workshop participants write about their lives, recording them for their children and grandchildren, themselves, and their communities, preserving family and community histories.
