Being an active participant in community life and culture improves quality of life as we age. Dellwood Gardens provides many opportunities to engage in social activities and programs that give our residents a reason to get up, get moving, and enjoy life to the fullest every day.
At Dellwood Gardens, we believe that true wellbeing comes from caring for the whole person. Our staff members take the time to get to know each resident personally so that we can cater their experience to meet their individual needs and preferences. The enrichment programs we offer are designed to address each resident’s mind, body, and soul with a diverse daily schedule of activities ranging from physical fitness to music appreciation and nostalgia events.
Our life enrichment programs include:
At Dellwood Gardens, we welcome people of all backgrounds, cultures, and belief systems. Residents have access to a variety of religions and spiritual resources, including Catholic mass, devotional services, communion, and bible studies.
Keep your hands busy and give back to the community by participating in our crafting activities. We do projects such as beading, jewelry making, and blanket making that we donate to organizations in need. Past crafting creations have gone to Union Gospel Mission and Children’s Hospital.
An active social life has a huge impact on your overall wellbeing. We host a social and snack hour at 3:30 pm each day for residents to enjoy quality peer-to-peer interaction, as well as other social activities such as happy hours, ice cream socials to welcome new residents, and a regular schedule of music and entertainment events.
Playing games is a great way to socialize and keep your mind active at the same time. Challenge your neighbors or friends to board games, a round of cards, trivia, nostalgia games, and more.
We invite our residents to take an active role in shaping the Dellwood Gardens community. If you’re interested, attend a meeting of the Resident Council to learn more about how our community runs and how you can participate.
“I'm home! I have my friends, a community and a sense of belonging. I really enjoy being a part of the resident committee and attending the many social events we have here.”
Dellwood Gardens partnered with Urban Roots to establish a gardening program for our residents. Get your hands dirty and learn more about the food we grow—and eat—in our community. Our indoor and outdoor gardens offer a chance to get some fresh air or find moments of emotional serenity.
Our activities staff will work with you to build an exercise program that is personalized to your needs, abilities, and goals. Your program may incorporate a combination of fitness equipment, exercise videos, and walking routines.
At Dellwood Gardens, we make every effort to enjoy life to the fullest. We celebrate with seasonal parties, holiday parties, and “just because” parties with specialty themes. We believe it’s important to recognize and celebrate each and every member of our community as individuals, so we host monthly birthday parties to celebrate you.
Continuing to participate in learning opportunities as you age helps keep your mind active, which can prevent cognitive decline and improve memory function. We bring engaging speakers to lecture on topics such as history and music. These fun educational events also foster social connections amongst residents.
