Memory Care Community Insider

A Monthly Look Inside Aravilla Clearwater

The Fun Never Ends

It is our number one goal to keep our residents engaged all day long with fun interaction. We have now introduced activities to our second floor! By providing an
option with activities, residents experience the feeling of freedom and control by choosing which activity they prefer every single day.

Shhh, were watching a movie! Introducing our private movie theater! With popcorn, of course! Stay in the loop! Aravilla has lots of new, exciting surprises including our Aravilla Bus for outings that will be starting this month! In addition, Aravilla will be hosting a Halloween Fall Festival that will be on October 28th, from 4pm-7pm. We want to invite all families to join just for this event. Games, food, and beverages will be provided. Please RSVP with the receptionist at the front desk.

Rollin’ Bowling!

Every day here at Aravilla Clearwater, we alternate physical activities such as our Concierge Cardio Class, yoga stretching, noodle ball, volleyball, etc. This month Aravilla has introduced our newest activity: Rollin’ Bowling!

It’s a busy day everyday here at our memory care community, with lots of fun and laughter. With our activities routine we strive for a successful, busy day and a decrease in the dementia process. Participating in different activities multiple times a day can help a person with dementia achieve purpose and pleasure. It is also an effective way to slow down brain decline. Check out our calendar this month with new afternoon activities offered twice a week!

Party Time!

We take birthdays very serious here at Aravilla Clearwater! Our memory care community has a monthly Resident Birthday Party the last week of the month where the Aravilla Family gathers together in the Prominade at 1:45 to celebrate. We start the party with some games, snacks, beverages and champagne. We gather our special birthday group and recognize each one with an individual shout-out. Live entertainment is then added to the celebration, ending with a beautiful happy birthday song and birthday cake!

But the fun doesn’t end there…
Separate from our group party, each resident is personally recognized on their specific birthday with a cupcake, a balloon, and a gift. It’s crucial that we take a moment to recognize each resident’s birthday. Birthdays encourage reflection. Celebration makes our residents feel loved, in addition to encouraging them to recall their own memories and accomplishments.

We want to invite families and friends to our next Resident Birthday Party, October 26th at 1:45.

Resident Spotlight: Bernice P.

We want to take a moment to recognize Bernice P. as a part of our Aravilla Family. Bernice was born on December 3rd in 1927. She was born and raised in New York. After graduating high school and college, she was determined to become a professional dancer. Bernice performed for many years as a tap dancer. Radio City Music Hall was both her work and happy place. Apart from dancing, Bernice loved to sew. She would make all of her clothes by hand! Shortly after getting married, Bernice moved with her husband to Florida. Together they have 4 children, one girl and three boys, who now have kids of their own. She is one proud grandma! After many years of being a housewife and raising children, Bernice had the opportunity to travel. In addition to covering the United States, Bernice traveled all the way to China, Italy, and Germany. She feels most comfortable and happy here in Florida. Bernice is a very smart, loving lady who enjoys her time here at Aravilla very much. You will always find her participating in our activities and you’ll always notice her ever-present smile in our Promenade!
