VERO BEACH, Fla.—At Pelican Landing Assisted Living and Memory Care, residents, family members and associates joined together for festive and friendly competition in the Pelican Landing 2020 Winter Olympic Games.
Watercrest Senior Living, operator of Pelican Landing, coordinated the Olympic Games as part of Watercrest’s Live Exhilarated™ program, which encourages resident’s creativity, activity, and social engagement while engaging in diverse and enriching programs.
Watercrest’s unique approach to healthy aging focuses on individuals achieving personal wholeness through participation in programs aligned with the seven facets of wholeness: Get Active, Be Curious, Get Connected, Be Uplifted, Get Creative, Be Social, and Be Adventurous.
The Pelican Landing Winter Olympic Games kicked off last week with participants competing in the reindeer toss, snow hole, ring target, and the snowball toss. The Olympians enjoyed taking traditional photos with their ceremonial torch and Olympic backdrop, while the most laughter was heard during the final “snowball fight” amongst residents and associates.
“We are blessed with a close-knit community of residents, associates, and family members who enthusiastically engage in these unique and thoughtfully planned events,” says Kim Sviben, executive director of Pelican Landing. “The tradition and nostalgia surrounding the Olympic Games spark our residents’ interest while encouraging fun and light-hearted engagement with everyone involved.”
The Live Exhilarated™ program was created specifically for Watercrest Senior Living by Hollie Kemp, a nationally recognized award-winning dementia and memory care specialist. Kemp recently launched the program at Pelican Landing, focusing on the active pursuit of ‘personal wholeness’ for each resident. The Live Exhilarated™ program includes thoughtfully planned, multi-part programs inspired by individual resident’s passions and interests which align with the seven facets of wholeness.
