Winter fun for seniors at Melody Living

Winter fun for seniorsAs the days are getting shorter and colder, Melody Living assisted living and memory support in Colorado Springs is gearing up for some warm winter fun! Senior living doesn’t have to be limited to the warmer months, and at Melody Living, we thrive on creating a life in harmony for residents year-round.

Happy Hours

Every Friday, we’re thrilled to offer residents the opportunity to enjoy live music, entertainment and delicious food and beverage options that are the perfect touch to complete the evening. These events take place indoors in a warm and comfortable bistro-style environment.

Residents can feel like they’ve stepped out on the town and popped into a local cafe for some wine and cheese through our rich community life. Our special guest entertainers are always a hit with the senior residents, whether they’re singing beautiful melodies or strumming away on their acoustic guitars. Did we mention the beautiful views we have! What better way to watch the snow fall, than inside with a warm drink, music and friends all around?

Indoor Amusements

Our indoor amenities like our onsite movie theater is a great way to enjoy a warm day inside when the weather is cold. Enjoy freshly popped popcorn, beverages and gathering together with friends and family for a movie night! We also offer a state-of-the-art fitness center for seniors as an opportunity to warm up those muscles on a cold day. Residents and their visiting family can also enjoy staying cozy inside in our onsite restaurant or pop into one of our community life rooms for some fun activities. Of course, residents can always enjoy basking in the sun’s rays in one of our warm indoor sunrooms because Colorado winters always come with a bit of sun.

Game TimeWinter fun for seniors

Maybe a bit of fun with friends and family includes a game! Hang out while sipping hot chocolate in one of our game areas complete with a Wii for guaranteed laughs and a good time. We also have a large scrabble board wall and a variety of other board games our residents know and love.

Staying In

Sometimes residents prefer to just hunker down in their apartments on cold winter days – which we completely understand! Some tips to make the snow day more enjoyable are to grab your favorite fuzzy socks, a comfortable blanket, stock the kitchen with soups and warm beverages like hot cider or hot chocolate and set aside some good books or DVDs to enjoy sitting in while the weather outside is less than desirable. Don’t forget to invite your neighbors over to enjoy staying warm and cozy with you. Share memories with them by bringing out photo albums or bake a family-favorite recipe to share.

Whatever suits your style, we know how to ensure that residents and staff can enjoy a warm, welcoming winter season with a bit of fun sprinkled in.
