Nurturing the Body, Mind and Soul
At Mill Street Residence, we work hard to allow tenants to be able to continue the activities they enjoyed before moving to Mill Street Residence.
- Planned group outings involving visits with school children, music programs, plays and concerts.
- Social events: reminiscing groups, cards, reading circles, gardening, baking and bingo.
- Intergenerational and community activities.
- Weekly bible studies and routine worship services offered.
Our goal is to offer tenants plenty of opportunities to be active and social, while respecting their desire for privacy.View our monthly activity calendar here.
Every day is a gift, and we help our tenants live it to the fullest!
"Spending the day with the tenants reminiscing, playing cards, interacting with kids — I can't imagine a better job! Most of the tenants have been very active members of their communities, and that doesn't have to change when they move in."
—Jeani Trosvig, activities and community relations coordinator
You don't stop moving because you age. You age because you stop moving! That's why we offer our tenants a variety of classes, games and social gatherings to keep the body and the mind active.
Cards, cribbage, bingo or other games, reading circle, daily exercise class, bible study, music, worship service, visits with school children, special meals, afternoon coffee, gardening, and educational programs are all examples of what you'll find on our activity calendar.
To nurture the physical wellbeing of our tenants, we offer a variety of exercise classes every week, both in the morning and afternoon. These classes are led by Susie Benhardus, who specializes in Arthritis exercises, Valerie Sohl, who specializes in yoga/stretch exercises and Jeani Trosvig, who specializes in strength-training and cardio exercises. It's a great variety and there is something for everyone!
