Activities for Seniors in Bellingham

Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation nurtures and encourages seniors to be active and involved. Activity breathes vitality and vitality breathes happiness. So our goal is to offer a range of activities for seniors that promote life through creative stimulation and opportunities for social involvement.Paint

Individualized activities and life-enrichment services are offered to all residents of Avamere Bellingham Health Care and Rehabilitation. While most residents are in need of physical rehabilitation, we also focus on rehabilitating the mind and soul. A broad spectrum of large group activities to individualized in-room sessions are held daily.

The ever-popular Bingo games and musical performances by community artists, schools, and religious groups always draw a crowd of eager-to-participate residents. The resident that prefers self-directed activities is served as well. Magazines, books, games, and other individual activities are conveniently provided.

Arthritis, loss of mobility due to a recent surgery, or senior illnesses such as Alzheimer’s can set limitations on certain types of activities for seniors. But no matter your current health situation, there is always a way to maintain creative output through specially coordinated senior activities.

Here are several activities for seniors that we offer:

  • painting
  • bingo
  • word games
  • creating scrapbooks
  • movies and popcorn
  • outdoor pursuits
  • entertainment and audience participation
  • games and other activities to sharpen mental abilities
  • spiritual enhancement and reflection
  • and so much more!

Our Activity Program offers something for everyone. We encourage residents to participate in a range of activities. Our Activity Director turns requests into a reality and schedules a wide-range of events. Click here to see this month’s Activity Calendar.
