A positive atmosphere is an essential part of Oakville’s assisted living services and retirement residences. It is our goal to keep residents happy and entertained. This is why our calendars are full of fun activities for everyone to enjoy.
The current situation in Oakville, ON, can make it hard for a retirement home in Oakville to keep its residents’ engaged. However, this doesn’t stop us from holding events that allow our residents to socialize while being safe and distanced. One such event is our weekly movie nights.
Watching Movies in Retirement Residences
Even though it might seem like an everyday activity, there are quite a few benefits to movie nights, especially in senior residences in Oakville.
- Watching movies is said to improve memory. Movies can stimulate the mind and evoke strong emotions. Through watching a great film, we are reminded of certain feelings. These feelings can prompt a specific memory from our lives.
- Films are also a great way to spur conversations among residents. There is a social and emotional benefit to having just shared an experience through film. Commenting on the characters and events provides a great way to have fun as a group. Discussing plot points can create meaningful conversations.
- Sitting, relaxing, and watching movies is an excellent way to unwind. It is a way to be transported for an hour or two. It can create laughter, happiness and community among the residents, while keeping them entertained.
