New Independent Living Friends, Playing Pool, and Driving Cars
Although Bob was initially nervous about a new social scene with new people, it wasn’t long before he had his own guy posse. He and three of the other residents like to have their meals and activities together, especially playing pool. If you see one of them, you’re likely to see all four of them—they’re a popular group at Cedarhurst.
But Bob and his bros don’t just hang out. They also look after each other.
“If one of us doesn’t come down for an activity or for a meal, we go knocking on their door,” Bob said. “We know where each other should be, so if we don’t show up, we make sure we’re all okay.”
Bob and his boys like to play pool and cards together, but there’s another activity that Bob enjoys the most: driving.
Sure, Cedarhurst will provide Bob with transportation wherever he needs to go—and he’s glad to have that option, However, Bob still has his car and likes to drive. When he has to go to a doctor or another appointment, Bob fires up the engine and hits the road.
Things to Look Forward To
According to Bob, Cedarhurst activities are second to none. Bob feels that the Cedarhurst activities team does an amazing job making sure residents have a variety of fun, engaging activities.
While Bob and his friends make sure they enjoy every activity they can, he admits that the women in his community are even more active. “The ladies are always doing something,” he said. “They do more activities than we men do, and they really look after each other, too.”
Today, Bob is so happy he made the decision to move into an independent living senior community. He gets to be as active as he chooses, sees his family frequently, and is truly enjoying this phase of his life.
“Here, I look forward to things,” Bob said. “Every single day.”
