Dare to Dream – Marge

Marge states that she loves dogs! Before she moved to Arlington Place in February, she had the company of her cats and dog every day. She was overjoyed when one of our staff brought Cooper to visit her. Bringing Cooper in to see Marge on a regular basis brings joy to her and to us!


Dare to Dream – Jean Loots

Jean Loots has lived at Arlington Place longer than any of our current residents. Jean moved in after a health issue for a respite stay but had to return to the hospital for another health problem. When she came back to Arlington Place the second time, she decided this is where she would stay. This year, to celebrate her 13th anniversary, Jean had a party in the private dining room with her closest friends. We made a card from the staff and her friends bought her flowers. We’re looking forward to many more anniversaries with Jean.


Senior Fitness and Wellness Program

Residents at Arlington Place are enjoying a new exercise program. Working with Andrew Peters, Branch Director with the local YMCA is more than an exercise class. Andrew brings experience and knowledge as a certified Health Fitness Specialist about the fitness and wellness needs of seniors. Residents are beginning a series of 6 week programs, meeting twice a week with Andrew as a group. The group will be working on improving their balance, coordination, flexibility, strengthening core muscles and enhancing their overall well- being. Many of the movements in class will help with performance of day to day living activities. We may discover muscles we didn’t know we had, but we’re enjoying the challenge!
