What Could You Do With More Free Time?

One of the most sought-after perks of senior living is the freedom from the responsibilities associated with homeownership. Chores can be a hassle, so the opportunity to live without having to mow the lawn or take out the trash can be a dream come true.

Maintenance-free living at a StoryPoint Group community allows you an escape from daily chores and gives you something supremely valuable in return: time.

With the extra time you’d usually spend on home maintenance, you’re free to spend time on enriching activities like dining with friends or exploring a new hobby.

DID YOU KNOW?
At StoryPoint Group communities, our maintenance and housekeeping teams have extra time built into their schedule, so they can stop by and chat between requests. These opportunities for residents and employees to connect is one of the elements that make life at our communities so special.

 

RESIDENTS AT DANBURY ENJOY THEIR FREE TIME OUT IN THE GARDEN

While day-to-day home upkeep can become overwhelming, gardening can give seniors a sense of pride, belonging and purpose. That’s why every Danbury community has at least two raised garden beds for residents who’d like to participate in gardening clubs.

At one Danbury community, Danbury Millersburg, the community garden has grown into something more than just a hobby — it’s an important part of everyday life! Danbury Millersburg has both an herb and vegetable garden. Their herb garden has lemon balm, dill, rosemary, cilantro, parsley and thyme, and in the fruiting vegetable garden, they have peppers, tomatoes and lettuce. They use harvests from the garden to make lemon balm tea, garden-fresh mint mojitos and more.

Certain residents enjoy taking over the responsibility for watering specific plants or areas. One resident in particular loves the vegetable garden, while another takes great pride in keeping the front porch flowers lovely. Throughout the two courtyards, the community also has bird bath fountains, bird feeders and a butterfly garden that memory care residents helped plant and water daily. Doing something like this can be very rewarding and grounding for memory care residents as they can watch the daily progress.

 

”The real treasure is the heart-to-heart conversations while watering the flowers or plucking rosemary. Those are the moments I’m after with this garden, the moments where we can pause together and reminisce fondly.”
— Emelie Coblentz, Life Enrichment Director
