VERO BEACH, Fla., Feb. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- At Watercrest St. Lucie West Assisted Living and Memory Care, residents, family members and associates joined together in friendly competition for the Watercrest St. Lucie West Winter Olympic Games 2020. Watercrest's Winter Olympic Games are part of Watercrest's Live Exhilarated™ program, which encourages resident's creativity, activity, and social engagement while engaging in diverse and enriching programs.
Watercrest's unique approach to healthy aging focuses on individuals achieving personal wholeness through participation in programs aligned with the seven facets of wholeness: Get Active, Be Curious, Get Connected, Be Uplifted, Get Creative, Be Social, and Be Adventurous.
The Watercrest St. Lucie West Winter Olympic Games kicked off last week with Resident Wellness Director, Rocky, opening the ceremonies with a traditional running of the torch accompanied by the 'Rocky' theme song. More than 30 residents, along with their family and friends tested their accuracy, balance, and mental speed, competing in the ring toss, darts, word scramble, balance test and bullseye target toss. Closing ceremonies included 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes awarded to the winners of each individual game.
An honorary guest from the Special Olympics led a 50/50 raffle benefiting the Special Olympics, while sponsor goody bags were handed out to all participants.
"Our Watercrest Winter Olympics really sparked the fun and competitive nature of our residents," says Bobi Kruemberg, Executive Director of Watercrest St. Lucie West. "We had a fantastic turnout and plan to implement even more interactive and competitive activities in our Live Exhilarated™ programming based on their tremendous feedback."
