Residents stay active at Rittenhouse Senior Living of Valparaiso
Hobbies have a mind body connection; they are important activities for senior citizens and are an important part of healthy aging. Active seniors are proof that you can enjoy better health and have fun doing it.

Research studies have shown that leisure time and physical activity promote a healthier lifestyle. Our bodies are meant to be active and move. Many, as they age, tend to become increasingly inactive, preferring to watch TV to help pass the time away. Finding fun activities for senior citizens can change that.

The residents at Rittenhouse Senior Living of Valparaiso enjoy daily activities such as devotional readings and exercise, but the highlights of their week are the outings they take on the bus. The residents have enjoyed attending RailCats baseball games, making teddy bears at a Build-A-Bear Workshop and visiting Nurse Patty’s home in Wheatfield where they eat lunch and enjoy the beautiful country scenery.

Residents also enjoy monthly music performances from artists such as J. Jay Brooks, Trilly Walsh, Matt Chelich, Mark Shaver and Jerry Vernon. With music being an important aspect of the residents’ life, church groups also come in to sing hymns with the residents.

Those who have a passion for working with seniors and would like to volunteer their time at Rittenhouse with a senior, call Sylvia Stockman at 219-531-2484. There is no requirement to be creative or have a special skill, just come with a smile and enjoy a cup of coffee with one of Rittenhouse’s special residents.
