Engaged seniors lead richer, more satisfying lives. Retirement living at Christian City gives active seniors the chance to be as busy as they want to be with plenty of opportunities for social engagement, physical wellness, entertainment, and spiritual fulfillment. We believe in encouraging our residents to live vibrant lives, which may look different for each individual resident.
Our full-time Director of Campus Recreation plans a calendar of activities and events so that there are plenty of opportunities for residents to engage in activities they love, try out something new, and meet new friends while they’re at it. Now that the Recreation Center and new outdoor amenities have been completed, active senior life is even better at Christian City!
Recreation Center and Outdoor Amenities
Christian City is committed to helping our residents live their best lives. With the completed renovation of one of our original children’s cottages into a modern Recreation Center, Christian City now has a 4500-square-foot community hub that allows active senior residents throughout our 500-acre campus to come together in fellowship.
The open, multi-purpose room serves a variety of functions. Groups of residents enjoy playing video games and watching sports and other programming on a 145”-TV or playing a game of billiards. Many residents meet up with their neighbors to attend social, entertainment, and educational programs, such as resident art shows, veterans week events, speaker events, the annual “Not So Newlywed Game”, weekly bingo, and ice cream socials, to name a few. The building also hosts exercise classes that focus on strength and balance, such as Thai Chi and Chair Aerobics.
Expanded outdoor amenities just steps away from the Recreation Center include bocce ball, shuffleboard, a walking track, and putting green!
To keep our residents safe during the COVID-19 crisis, all in-person Campus Recreation programming has been canceled. However, to make sure that our residents still have the resources to support their physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, financial, and social wellness, a new Senior Wellness web page has been launched to provide virtual recreation activities until we are able to safely gather in groups again.
