After being cooped up for so long – first from winter’s cold, then from COVID-19 – we imagine many of you are ready to get outside and enjoy the early summer weather.

Gone are the days when bingo was the highlight of life at a senior living community. These days, sixty is more like the new forty, and activities at senior living communities are reflecting that.
