Sneak Peak: See How Senior Living Residents Spend Their Day

If you think that all senior living residents do all day is sit in a rocking chair and talk about the good old days, you’re in for a shock—and a wonderful surprise. Empowered by a lifestyle of freedom and choices, they’re doing everything from learning new languages to practicing yoga to having brunch to discovering their inner Picasso.

Want to sneak a peek of a day in a retirement community in St. Charles County? Imagine you’re a resident of Avalon Park Independent Living in Cottleville. Here’s what a typical day might look like.

Mornings for Avalon Park Senior Living Residents

Who needs an alarm clock? You set your own schedule…sleep in if you choose or be up before the birds are singing. The day is yours, and so many possibilities await. Should you start with a workout? Drop by the library and read the news? Take a walk around the community? It’s all waiting for you, and it’s something senior living residents love about their life: lots and lots of choices. But first, how about breakfast—fresh and delicious. And no dishes to wash!

No matter how you spend your morning, you get the perk of feeling part of a friendly community…fellow residents greeting you with a smile, staff humming about and saying hello, activity and energy all around you. It puts a spring in your step and gives you a new purpose. In fact, all this vitality is rubbing off: now you’re thinking about trying some new activities, like painting, trivia, or a lively discussion on world events. At Avalon Park, you’re in control. Just how you hoped independent living in St. Charles County could be.

Can it already be lunchtime? Wow, the day goes by fast when you’re feeling content! Again, options: maybe have a quick meal and then take a stroll to catch up on what’s new. Or invite your son over and talk about last night’s big game over soup and a sandwich. You might decide to have a light snack in your apartment and then take your canine companion for a walk.

Afternoons at Avalon Park Are a Pleasure

You’ve been busy today. You could always take a quick nap…but then, you might miss something!

It could be time for your favorite exercise class. Or, the group might be heading out to a fun outing and you don’t want to miss it. Of course, there’s always that bridge game that pops up every afternoon, as well as some fierce Wii bowling competition. Or maybe sip some coffee with friends on the outdoor covered patio. Who knew a retirement community in St. Charles County could have so many options for senior living residents?

For a special treat, why not hop on a golf cart and take the short ride over to downtown Cottleville and check out the specialty shops and boutiques. You might even meet up with your daughter to look for the perfect birthday present. Whatever you decide to do, you can relax knowing you don’t have to rush back to prepare dinner, meet repairmen, clean the house or rake the leaves. That’s all done by an attentive staff dedicated to serving you.

What do Senior Living Residents do in the Evenings at Avalon Park?

Hard to believe, but the choices continue: depending on the day of the week, it could be a movie, concert, birthday party, happy hour, evening walk, or maybe a quiet evening in front of the grand fireplace greeting other residents.
