Summer activities at Fox Trail Senior Living in Deptford, New Jersey promote overall health and wellness in our seniors and community members. With summertime here, and in full swing, our community provides a safe and engaging environment for our residents. At Fox Trail Senior Living Deptford, there is no typical day. Take a look at our favorite ways of staying active with our residents!
Outdoor activities have the ability to help overall health for seniors. Along with a natural supply of Vitamin D, being outside can boost mood, improve sleep, and promote positive growth in relationships. Plus, being able to get mild physical activity is an added bonus.
Our Walking Club highlights the beautiful grounds of our community and the greater Deptford Township. Besides physical activity, walking is also a great source of relaxation for many residents. Walking outdoors also has a positive effect on mental health, and after a long winter indoors, it is always a necessary boost.
The state flower of New Jersey is the Common Blue Violet. This beautiful flower is just one of the many flowers, plants, and herbs available in our Gardening Club. Gardening is a great outdoor activity that promotes mild physical activity and is a great source of relaxation. Being able to garden together in our community is not only a way to promote the strength within our community, but also is made more enjoyable by assistance from our staff when needed.
