From exercise classes to quiet sessions of knitting, our residents’ days are filled with choices for interesting and lively social interaction. Our residents come together to learn new skills, develop new friendships, tend to the needs of the soul, or simply to have a good time. Southern Magnolia creates activities specially designed to motivate, stimulate and enhance their independence and quality of life.
When planning activities, we do keep in mind that some of those that are the most fun can also be very beneficial in terms of mind stimulation, emotional enrichment, and social interaction with others. Activities are encouraged, and our activity calendar makes planning easy. Our staff engages residents with social, recreational and educational programs that are designed to meet a wide range of interests. Exercise classes, holiday and birthday celebrations, musical performances and church services are some examples of the opportunities our residents have to stay involved.
Most residents at Southern Magnolia have been lifelong churchgoers and we think it is important for their well-being to continue after moving in. Southern Magnolia works with area churches to have on-site church services each week. The services last about an hour and usually consist of singing, Bible readings, and a sermon. Although we don’t provide transportation to local church services, if a resident wishes to attend a church that provides pickup and drop-off services we are happy to assist the resident with coordinating logistics.
