Special Activities in Adult Family Homes Olympia WA

Live a full life in adult family homes Olympia WA

Moving into an adult family home doesn’t mean it’s time to settle for a quiet, uninteresting life. Adult family homes Olympia WA offer a wide range of life-enriching activities. The specific type of activities will vary from home to home, and the availability of activities on any given day will differ. But the smaller, more intimate size of adult family homes makes it possible to offer a more individualized program, focusing on the particular interests and needs of the individuals that live in the home.

In all adult family homes, visits from family members and friends are always welcome. Most homes will celebrate holidays and throw birthday parties and other family celebrations.

Other activities you might find occurring on a regular basis would be access to a  traveling library, Bible studies, gardening time, crafts classes, or cooking activities.

Always a popular activity, many adult family residences schedule special musical programs such as concerts, recitals, sing-alongs, and Karaoke sessions. Another favorite activity is interacting with pets. Some homes have a pet in the home, and some will arrange visits from a therapy dog.

The staff of adult family homes Olympia WA may plan various outings for those who want to venture out into the community. Lunch outings, picnics, scenic drives, and shopping trips are all events that residents can participate in. Some homes will also plan day trips to local attractions if residents are interested.  

You will find a range of recreational and enrichment activities at adult family homes Olympia WA. When searching for that home that is the perfect fit, be sure to ask about the special services and activities that each home provides.

Nancy was so compassionate

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it has been having Nancy help us find a place for my Mom who has dementia. Nancy was so incredible and helpful especially at a time when we were, as can be imagined, having one of the most difficult family events ever. Nancy was so compassionate more »

Thank you so much

Hi Nancy, I want to thank you on behalf of my brothers and I for helping us find a place for our mother. I was at a loss as to how to go about things until I got hold of you. I’m sure we would still be looking had it not been for your help. more »

My cousin is very happy now

Thank you for all that you did for my cousin… She may have been reluctant at first, but she is very happy now (and much safer). You played an important part in this transition.

Positive spin on the transition.

Talked to mom today and heard no regrets (after her move to assisted living). I give you a lot of the credit… you really helped to put a positive spin on the whole transition.

A mere thanks hardly covers it

Picking me up, handling the walker every time, generally bolstering me mentally; a mere thanks hardly covers it all!

Good fit to Mothers needs

Thanks Nancy for responding so quickly to my plea for help. I couldn’t have done it without you. Finding a home for my mother so quickly and a good fit to her needs. I now know I would have made a critical mistake if I had done this on my own. Your guidance in knowing more »

Good care of my Dad

I can’t thank you enough for recommending the house my Dad is living in. Joyce and Sandy are great, along with the other gals. They take such good care of my Dad and I think he really is enjoying living there. It has been a great move for him.

Wonderful to work with

Hi Nancy! This is a hello and thank-you from Duane B’s family. You miraculously found him an assisted living place right after Christmas 2011. He was 96 at the time and in a “spend down” period. You found him a wonderful place in Kirkland. Anyway, I was trying to find something else in my e-mails more »
