Celebrations at Aravilla

May is one of our favorite months here at Memory Care Aravilla Sarasota. We had lots of birthdays and lots to celebrate throughout the month. We started off with our Cinco de Mayo celebration. As always, the decorations are all so vibrant and colorful. Our senior residents wore big sombreros and feasted on chips and salsa along with delicious strawberry Margaritas as we listened to music by our friend Mark.

Our next big day was the Mother’s Day Tea Party. Everybody had such a nice time at this celebration. The ladies dressed up with their fancy flowered hats for this special occasion. The tables were decorated with the cutest tea sets and a variety of tea flavors. We enjoyed the tea with delicious cinnamon cheesecake and berries. What a treat. May had lots more adventures and we enjoyed them all. We can’t wait to see what June has instore for us.

Memorial Day at Memory Care Aravilla Sarasota

Memorial Day is the day that is set aside to remember with gratitude and pride all of those who served and died for our country and our freedom. We thank them and honor them on this holiday. The entire day was very patriotic. We held a ceremony to thank and pray for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Residents read poems, prayers and sang along to many patriotic tunes. We made beautiful patriotic crafts which we used to decorate the atrium with.

We set out our flags and banners which made the room very festive. Of course this was followed by our traditional, delicious BBQ lunch with ribs, hot dogs, burgers, sodas and more! Music hour was a blast. Barry played a few patriotic songs for us to sing and tap our toes to. I think everyone had a nap after such a busy day.

Yoga at Aravilla

Staying active and mobile in your senior years can provide many health benefits. Yoga is an excellent option to consider if you want to remain active and flexible without muscle strain. Many studies show that yoga practice has a positive effect on cellular aging, mobility, balance, mental health, prevention of cognitive decline and improves sleep habits in seniors who practice it correctly.
