Home Brew Crew
Who has ever brewed their own beer? Our Members have! Meet our ‘Home Brew Crew’! They are working with our Director of Dining Services, Michael Keough to start their homebrew batches. It has been getting quite the buzz around the community because Members can’t wait to get a taste of our “Lakes Small Batch Brew.”
Women’s Heart Health
Last week our Lakes Wellness, Social, and Live Long Well Care teamed up to support, gain awareness, and help our members learn about Women’s Heart Health. We had a full day of exercise, lunch, and programs along with some heart-healthy dark chocolate treats brought by Live Long Well Care! It was a great team effort in our community for this important awareness and educational day!
Sometimes our Wellness Director, Theresa likes to add in a little surprise for our Members. During this workout, she brought some plates for Members to use! Using these plates helps Members keep their core engaged and work smaller muscle groups! A simple but effective addition to our workout!
Our Interval Training class is a big hit. Our fitness gurus at The Lakes know the importance of working in multiple muscle groups during a workout. On Friday, we focused on different muscles in the upper body to ensure we kicked the weekend with a great workout!
New Club Alert! The travel club is the newest addition to the long list of clubs found at The Lakes at Litchfield. Each month we “visit” a new country, sample some of their most delicious foods and beverages, and virtually travel to the country! Members are encouraged to bring their pictures and memorabilia if they have traveled to this country and share their stories with others! This month we went to France! We toured Paris, Nice ‘and Monaco. We drank French wine and ate French bread with brie, along with a dessert of petit fours. Bon appetite & Bon Voyage!
Who has seen Les Misérables? Here at The Lakes at Litchfield, our Members love it! We had Meg Kelly stopped by our community last night for our lovely happy hour! She played all of our favorite’s tunes from Les Misérables’s, it was a huge hit! Members loved her music! Merci, Meg Kelly!
“Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler!” Members in Care Services enjoyed the flavors of New Orleans last week for their Mardi Gras celebration! There were masks and beads on each table so Members could get into the spirit of the city. We listened to soulful music and danced the night away!
A beautiful sunny day and puppies are the perfect combination! We had a “Puppy Day” here at The Lakes at Litchfield and it was marvelous! It was pet therapy at its best where those Members who have dogs could get out and socialize them! There are so many fur babies who call our community home. Each pet went home with a bag full of goodies!
