Living the Weller Life
– October 2020 –
At Cascades Verdae, Members took a transport into a German Oktoberfest celebration inside the safety of their community! Our Leadership teams worked together to transform our formal dining room into a festival for Members to enjoy! Executive Chef Obediah Kirven prepared German fare including, Weiner Schnitzel, Bratwurst, Strudel, German Chocolate Cake, and German beer, of course! Social Director Ed, and Wellness Director Aleksandra, entertained Members with polka dances while oompah music played in the background. It was a lovely way to celebrate the traditional festival from our beautiful community!
Active Aging Week was so much fun at the Cascades Verdae! Our Members had a week of outdoor challenges that helped them embrace wellness! Whether they were flipping tires, participating in an egg challenge, nutrition lectures, and banana bouquets! The tire flip had Members squat, and flip the tire to see how many times they could flip it in 60-seconds. One of our Members who is an active participant in our wellness program broke the record! During our egg challenge, we had Members holding an egg on a soup spoon in their mouth while traveling through an obstacle course! Each of these activities worked the different pillars of wellness and were a great way to highlight the different ways that we broke down the stereotypes associated with aging to live The Weller Life.
