Resident Activities

Learn How Our Residents Stay Active and thrive™!

Our promise at The Waters is to see you, hear you and know you.

We believe residents thrive™ when their voices are heard.

THRIVING Connections goes beyond “activities” while integrating hospitality with wellbeing at every dimension—Health, Relationships, Security, Purpose, Community and Environment. We also appreciate that each of The Waters communities has a unique resident population, which is why our “in-house” Active Life teams are always hard at work tailoring purposeful activities to accommodate those localized needs, interests and aspirations through THRIVING Connections, our Signature Active Life Program. Residents and team members have an active voice in shaping their community, while simultaneously nurturing social connections and friendships. 

Active community living is a vibrant, enriching experience in which our residents engage in a range of meaningful activities, including art, music, physical wellness, spirituality, culinary experiences and so much more. They socialize and experience a wide degree of freedom in choosing their varied daily activities. This kind of dynamic environment is vital for long-term wellbeing. One of the positive impacts of active life is longevity and a sense of renewed purpose in the later years.  This is why we ensure that our residents have a wide variety of community activities.  An active senior lifestyle is easily within reach for those who choose to live with us at The Waters of Oakdale.
