There are lots of opportunities to socialize at Granny’s Place. Residents live in a family home, share meals in the dining areas, participate in outings on a regular basis, and enjoy games, videos, and their guests in the living areas of the home on a regular basis.
Spontaneous activities such as cooling down by putting their feet in the water on a warm afternoon (see photo) are encouraged. Guests, including children are welcome to visit and are enjoyed by all the residents and caregivers.
It has been said that music makes everyone happier and more social. Claudia’s Sing-A-Longs are held every Friday in each of the Granny’s Place homes. Residents enjoy old favorites and learn new songs as well.
Through music, our residents with various health conditions are able to live more fully. They are not defined by their conditions or their need for medicines and care. They become engaged members of a supportive community that encourages emotional growth, sharing, and self-worth. This is vitally important to seniors who experience challenges.
There are lots of opportunities for prayer and spirituality at Granny’s Place. In addition to scripture reading, group reading, prayer and medication, volunteers from the local religious community often visit, offering comfort and spirituality with the residents.
For those who request it, a volunteer from St. Killian’s Catholic Church in Mission Viejo brings communion to all the Catholics at Granny’s place each week.
