Watercrest Senior Living Group Launches Live Exhilaratedtm Program at Palm Bay Memory Care

VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- At Palm Bay Memory Care, residents are pursuing their passions and sparking their creativity while exercising both their bodies and their minds.  Thanks to Watercrest's newly created Live Exhilaratedtm program, residents are engaging in diverse and enriching programs whose benefits greatly exceed the traditional activities found in memory care communities.

Residents at Palm Bay Memory Care are pursuing their passions and interests as part of Watercrest's newly launched 'Live Exhilarated' program in Palm Bay, Fla.

Watercrest Senior Living, operator of Palm Bay Memory Care, takes a unique approach to healthy aging focusing on individuals achieving personal wholeness through participation in programs aligned with the seven facets of wholeness.  These facets provide the framework for the Live Exhilaratedtm program which focuses on celebrating the residents' story, encouraging their pursuit of new passions, optimizing their experience, and offering variety and choice to all residents.

The Live Exhilaratedtm program was created specifically for Watercrest Senior Living by Hollie Kemp, a nationally recognized award-winning dementia and memory care specialist.  The program recently launched at Palm Bay Memory Care, focusing on the active pursuit of 'personal wholeness' for each resident. The Live Exhilaratedtm program includes thoughtfully planned, multi-part programs inspired by individual resident's passions and interests which align with the seven facets of wholeness: Get Active, Be Curious, Get Connected, Be Uplifted, Get Creative, Be Social, Be Adventurous

This fall, the residents jumped at the chance to Be Adventurous, visiting the pumpkin patch and enjoying an authentic hayride, a first for many. Thanks to a group of male residents eager to Get Creative, the community was also festively decorated with large, wooden pallets hand-painted to resemble a ghost, a pumpkin and Frankenstein.

Opportunities to Be Social and Be Curious included an Oktoberfest beer tasting party and a celebration of National Pickle Day! Residents delighted in sampling dill pickle chips, pickle popsicles, sweet and deep-fried pickles, and playing a lighthearted game of 'Pin the Lips on the Pickle."

On a regular basis, residents choose to Be Uplifted with frequent visits from Pastor Dave, the Space Coast Therapy Dogs, and the homeschool students of St. Sebastian whose visits bring smiles and good cheer. To Get Active in a fun and creative way, residents participate in the Yomenco program using maracas to move to the beat of Latin music utilizing movement and breathing exercises.

To Get Connected, residents spend time with the kind and compassionate honor students of Pineapple Cove Classical Academy, and also enjoy delivering treats and heating pads to their furry friends at the South Brevard Animal Shelter.

Palm Bay Memory Care features 72 apartments with gracious accommodations, upscale amenities, state-of-the-art wellness, enhanced culinary, and exceptional care programs, all tailored to individual resident preferences. For information, contact Michele Lyon at 321-574-6290.
