Social Life at Angels Senior Living
Angels Social Life & Enrichment is multifaceted. It’s exciting. It’s fun. It’s about relationships. It’s about quality of life. It’s crucial to our seniors’ happiness. There are so many benefits to our unwavering dedication to our residents’ social life that we keep it high on the priority list. We have a dedicated team of people focused on activities so our seniors have options to stay busy throughout the day.
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.
There’s no doubt that you have questions about how your loved ones will be nurtured in mind, body, and spirit. Read below where we try and answer some common questions.
"Upon taking the tour, again 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."
