Keep the good times rolling
Maintaining a semi-active and social retirement lifestyle during lockdown is something Forest Lake Garden’s residents are focussed on and have found safe ways to keep the fun and bonding alive and well.
In their ‘new norm’, our residents stay committed to their exercise. Our walk group continue their daily 9am walk around the village – a great way for residents to keep connected whilst exercising, remembering social distancing at all times of course. To lighten the mood and boast the energy, music is played on residents’ front porches while residents carry out their daily exercises.
Our usual Friday Happy Hour and meal may be cancelled at the moment, but a group of residents are meeting for drinks in the evening, known as “drinks on the green”, which takes place in one of our communal gardens. Everyone brings their own drinks and glasses, whilst they sit and chat and put the world to rights before returning back to their own bubbles.
And, if the idea of cooking is daunting, then our wonderful Café Manager, Stan, and his team have whipped up marvellous weekly menus for our residents to enjoy, which are delivered daily to their homes by staff.
