We take an exciting, multifaceted approach to enriching the lives of our seniors. For us, it’s about relationships. It’s about quality of life. Those personal connections drive us to deliver the best experience possible for our seniors, and encourage their happiness.
There are so many health and psychological benefits to providing unwavering dedication to the social lives of seniors that we make it a high priority.
Keeping seniors engaged is at the core of our mission. Seniors and staff enjoying activities together is at the core of building our family, and we keep a dedicated team of activities staff so our seniors always have options to go out for meals, take sightseeing and shopping trips, and stay busy in our community too!
Our families love to know that their loved ones are engaged and living life to the fullest each and every day. Each facility has a Facebook Page that we keep up to date with the latest and greatest captured moments so you can keep up with your Mom or Dad even from a click of a mouse sitting in your own living room.
We’re sure you have some questions about how we nurture your loved one in mind, body, and spirit. Check out our FAQ below for more information about our activities.

What People Are Saying About Our Social Life
"Upon taking the tour, we were warmly greeted by any staff member we encountered. I noticed the cleanliness of the facility was better than most; as well as the number of staff to attend to the resident's needs. We were able to taste test from the day's menu, which was wonderful!"
"LOVING, CARING, NURTURING, DEDICATED, and COMMITTED... these are the words that come to my mind when I think about 'The Lodges of Idlewild.' My family feels blessed that we found 'The Lodges' for my mother and we know that she is being provided the level of care that unfortunately we can't."
"I brought my dad here to Angels a few months ago. He was depressed, lost a ton of weight where he was previously and not cared for. The difference in his health, ability to get around, happiness is beyond words. They have taken the time to truly get to know my dad and his needs. From new diabetic foot ware, eye doctors that come in, activities, personal hygiene, community, PT, OT and so much more. They have surpassed my expectations and given the quality of care he needed. I just have to extend my greatest thanks and gratitude for all they have done for my dad. He is my Heart! With tears if gratitude..... I love this place, the management, my awesome lady receptionist, Jennifer and every employee. I would definitely recommend Angels of South Tampa for your loved one. They are simply Amazing and the best around. Thank you All soooo Much!!! - Racquael"

You will find the calendar in the lobby or you can ask the Activity Director for your own personal copy. In general, you will find art classes, painting classes, bingo, card games, puzzle time, scrabble, Yahtzee and many other engaging activities for our seniors on any given day.
Our engagement and enrichment programs do not stop inside the building. Each facility has an Angels Senior Living bus or mini-van available on designated days. We offer chaperoned and supervised off-site outings for our residents such as going shopping at one of their favorite stores, seeing a movie at a nearby theater, or dining at a local restaurant.
There may be a sightseeing tour planned… there’s always something new and our staff is quite busy staying creative on what we can offer our residents.
Once a month, you and your loved one have the opportunity to partake in a Monthly Family Event. Usually, we’ll match the theme with the month such as a special Valentine’s Dinner in February.
Another popular event is our weekly Happy Hour usually on Fridays. At these Happy Hour events, our residents love to dance to the music being played or live music. We are even known to hire live performers to come in! In addition, we offer random “Date Nights” for an exciting dining experience for our residents.
Each community routinely offers a Christian Non-Denominational and Catholic service (Communion given) for our residents. Additionally, our team works with all of our residents belonging to any denomination or religion to schedule relevant faith services.
