Seniors benefit greatly from regular participation in activities. Having a variety of events available increases happiness, self-worth, enhances communication, develops friendships, physically strengthens, and preserves both cognitive and physical health during the aging process. Our residents, even those with more advanced memory loss, will be offered activities geared for their specific ability. Whether they join our Exercise classes, Hobby clubs, Pet Therapy, music events, or a variety of fun options offered daily, our residents enhance their well-being and aging journey. At Northbrook, we love to integrate the family too by offering quarterly family events for everyone to participate in together. Stay tuned to find out more about Northbrook Inn's activities.
Music & Memories
The Koelsch Communities Music Program is a program that taps into each person’s deep rooted love of music. It’s about bringing joy to the lives of people suffering from Alzheimer’s, other forms of dementia and a wide range of cognitive and physical impairments. Northbrook Inn has trained staff that set up personalized music playlists for residents. These musical favorites tap deep memories not lost to dementia and can “reawaken” residents, enabling them to feel like themselves again, converse, socialize and stay present.
Join us in the amazing journey of connecting elders with memory loss to the music of a lifetime.
