Over the next few months we will be addressing how and why to increase our physical activity, make healthier nutritional choices, the importance of brain heath, and how to incorporate what we learn into our daily lives. Also included in the program are twice weekly balance and strength training exercises, weekly yoga sessions, a monthly meditation group, and pet therapy visits.

After meeting with residents where the subject of transportation was brought up several times, it became evident that there was a need that required attention. The management team put their heads together and came up with solutions to the problem. As a result, we now offer a monthly shopping trip to Eugene, extended shopping hours locally, added a library trip, and an additional lunch outing to the monthly schedule. We are delighted that we were able to meet the needs of our residents. 6 | 541.997.8202 Shorewood Senior Living
