Adventure Series & Bucket Lists!
If you hear “retirement community” and think it’s all bingo and knitting mittens…you may want to think again (though don’t get us wrong, who doesn’t love a good game of Bingo?!). However, we’ve found that our residents tend to be a bit on the adventurous side. When it comes to traveling and experiencing new things, they say, “Where do we sign up?!”
That’s why our Programs Coordinator, Sue Belanger, Director of Fitness and Therapeutic Recreation, Sue Pollock, staff members AND residents are always coming up with new and exciting adventures to put on the calendar. We refer to these special trips and activities as our Adventure Series. You can find our residents zip lining through the tree tops, taking overnight trips to the Cape, hiking up mountains, riding motorcycles, operating heavy machinery (what?!) and so much more.
We also try to fulfill our residents’ Bucket List wishes whenever possible. Here are some photos of a few of the adventures we’ve been on and the Bucket List goals we’ve been checking off one by one. We are living life to the fullest at Havenwood Heritage Heights!
