As the temperature drops and winter sets in, we find ourselves less inclined to get into our bathers and enjoy the Elements Living pool or spend time in our outdoor facilities. Even though summer may be over for another year, there is still plenty of fun to be had at Elements and far more to do than just rug up in Winter woolies!
Here at our Springwood Retirement Village, we are not missing a beat. Residents are spoiled for choice with activities. From igniting your inner artist to keeping your body active, we have rounded up an extensive list of activities and entertainment that will warm the soul during the cooler months.
Here are our top picks for winter activities at Elements Living:
TREAT YOURSELF IN OUR PAMPER ROOM
Winter can make us all feel a little weary so a pick-me-up in our Pamper Room is just what the doctor ordered. Treat yourself to time well spent in our Pamper Room and practice self-care. Book your appointment with our lovely Beauty Therapists.
GET COSY AND CONNECT WITH CIRCLE OF MEN
Nothing warms the heart quite like Circle of Men. Run weekly, Circle of Men is a social group dedicated to our gents and designed to help our residents connect on shared interests, share stories and enjoy each other’s company.
KEEP WARM – STAY ACTIVE
It can be difficult to stay motivated during the cooler months, but there are definite benefits to keep your body moving all year round. If you do not want to brave the crisp morning air, fear not, Elements have plenty on offer indoors. Enjoy Tai Chi, Zumba and Chair Yoga from the comfort of our Community Centre. Also, our fully equipped gymnasium has a range of cardio equipment, free-form hand weights, stationary load-bearing machines, balls and yoga mats.
GET CRAFTY WITH THE LADIES AT CRAFT AND CHAT
Come for the craft, stay for the conversation. Sip (or spill!) the tea, get crafty and spend quality time with the wonderful women in our community. Find your creative flair in our craft room. It’s a fun social space to bring your designs to life, with activities including pottery, sewing, leatherwork and painting.
HEAD TO THE SHED
Head into the Elements Workshop and get to work! There is always something exciting happening in the Workshop including woodwork and metalwork projects. Learn new skills, utilise the shed’s range of tools and when you’ve finished, challenge the lads to a round of darts!
GAMES GAMES GAMES!
Our residents have access to a plethora of boardgame favourites that don the Centre’s shelves. Work your way through our selection or join in on weekly games. Challenge a fellow resident in a game of indoor bowls, bridge, cards, chess or any board games that tickles your fancy on our specially designed games tables.
Embrace the season this winter and stay cosy, the Elements way
It is important to stay active, stay engaged and keep the fun alive.
