Exploring. Growing. Learning. It’s not just our motto here at Southgate at Shrewsbury, it’s the philosophy that guides us as we choose the best programs, amenities and services to enrich the lives of our residents. It also reflects the lifestyle that all of our residents enjoy and the ways that they benefit from being a part of our exceptional retirement community.
Southgate offers a variety of excursions that make it easy to travel around the region and seek out the very best in historical, educational and entertaining attractions. Our residents find that when exploring is this convenient, it’s easy to do it more often and have more fun while on the go.
In May, for example, residents took a trip to the Blackstone River in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. There, they learned about the history of Slater Mill National Park during a private tour of the historical textile complex.
Now in June, residents will enjoy a delicious dining experience and a relaxing ride on a pontoon boat cruise. This cruise travels over the beautiful waters of the Concord and Sudbury Rivers, providing the perfect setting for the feast.
Seniors at Southgate at Shrewsbury are always growing and discovering new things. They do this by socializing in the Saratoga Cocktail Lounge with the backdrop of music from the baby grand piano, discussing the themes of the latest movie played in the theater, by attending a performance from a visiting musician and in so many more ways. They also expand their horizons by attending programs that are outside of their normal activities. For example, this month they can learn a fun new way to play sports and games at the Nintendo Wii Seminar.
Learning certainly doesn’t stop once you’re out of school. It’s clear that having a successful career and raising a family means learning all the time. Something that may be less obvious, however, is the fact that retirement age can be a time of unparalleled learning.
It’s true! Active seniors finally have the time to explore all of their interests and see where their curiosity takes them. And if they are lucky enough to be members of our retirement community, then they have a wide variety of outlets for their curiosity. Each month brings new educational experiences, such as academic lectures, art programs and cultural events. They can also learn a new hobby, such as painting or woodworking. It’s easy for them to try new things when all of the supplies, the space and any helping hands they require are ready and waiting.
It’s easy to see that the core concepts of exploring, growing and learning are the perfect building blocks for enjoying your retirement years to their fullest. Give us a call to set up a tour and see how wonderful life at Southgate at Shrewsbury can be!
