Living healthier for longer is a goal residents have in common. Residents say Aberdeen Heights helps them strive purposefully toward that goal, every day. Here they have the tools, programs, support and friendships to help them thrive in their retirement.
Our approach to wellness certainly includes the physical aspect. But it also goes well beyond that, including six components that help you feel healthy in body, mind and spirit.
Physical – Discover ample opportunities for physical activity: competitive water volleyball and aqua classes in our indoor pool; instructor-led courses and Quantum hydraulic fitness equipment in our wellness center; croquet, shuffleboard and billiards around our community.
Social – People thrive on social interaction, and you’ll find as much here as you like: bridge, poker and art clubs, organized trips to concerts and area fairs, even Happy Hours.
Spiritual – Faith means all things to all people, and at Aberdeen Heights, all are welcome. Participate in Bible study, sing hymns or attend weekly services. Our chaplain offers nondenominational services welcoming of all faiths. The spiritual well-being of the residents is important at Aberdeen Heights. This community welcomes people of all faiths and backgrounds. A Prayer and Meditation Room is available to all for quiet times of reflection and prayer. Bible study is offered weekly in Independent Living and Assisted Living. Ecumenical worship services are offered weekly for each level of care, as well as special worship services. A rosary group meets regularly to pray together, and a local priest celebrates mass and communion services. In addition, residents are able to schedule religious/spiritual programs to meet their needs. Transportation is available to some local churches on Sunday morning. Our chaplain leads the Bible studies and worship services, as well as, offers personal pastoral care.
Intellectual – Continually charge and recharge your mental batteries through author presentations, special speakers series, book clubs and numerous other classes.
Creative – Whether tapping into a new talent or expanding your artistic side, expressing yourself creatively is an excellent outlet. Our Arts & Crafts Room is often alive with art classes and activities. Our Art is Ageless® program encourages Aberdeen Heights residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its art show, as well as art classes, musical and dramatic events, educational opportunities and current events discussions throughout the year. It just proves that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.
Service-oriented – Serving others is very important for residents. In fact, Volunteerism is one of our most popular resident-led subcommittees. Many volunteer at The Glen, at nearby Robinson Elementary School and with Meramec Community College.
We believe strongly in resident involvement. Which is why numerous scheduled activities on our monthly activities calendar are informed by our four resident-led Health and Wellness Subcommittees encompassing Nutrition & Dietary, Mental & Emotional, Volunteerism, and Physical Fitness.
