Engaging Communities With Social Activities
Older adults living on their own are often at risk for isolation and loneliness. At The Pillars of Prospect Park, our goal is to foster a sense of community for our residents while providing an opportunity to participate in activities. Our community provides opportunities for creative expression, meaningful discussion, entertaining speakers, and a chance to give back to those in need.
We incorporate the seven components of wellness (emotional, physical, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, and occupational) into our activities calendar. Our goal is to engage each and every resident by providing a wide variety of social events.
