Embracing Autumn: Activities to Enjoy in Our Senior Living Community

October 25th, 2023

Autumn is a favorite time of year for many residents at Cristwood Park in Shoreline and Crista Shores in Silverdale. As the weather cools and activities come inside, senior living communities embrace pumpkin spice and autumn colors. Our residents enjoy the autumn season with many special events and a seasonal twist on their regular activities.

Weekly craft parties take on autumn themes and monthly dinner parties highlight late harvest foods. And, as we do in every season, our communities are invited to special events like the following:

For our Shoreline community at Cristwood Park:

  • Attending a Taproot Theatre matinee — this autumn, the show is “Last Drive to Dodge”
  • A scenic drive to Magnolia Bluff and a stop at Larsen’s Bakery
  • A walk on the Bothell Landing
  • Lunch at the Olive Garden restaurant
  • A Hymn Sing featuring The Pilgrim’s Men’s Chorus
  • Operation Shoebox Kickoff with “Gift of the Magi Retold”

For our Silverdale community at Crista Shores:

  • An African Missions presentation with Chaplain Jeff and a resident who lived in Africa
  • Two professional piano concerts brought into Crista Shores
  • An Intergenerational Trick or Treat event with a local community
  • A County Fair Costume contest and games party
  • Attending Rick Steves at the Admiral Theater
  • Attending the Bremerton Symphony

We would love to show you the senior living communities at CRISTA Senior Living and have you join us for all the fun! Sign up for a tour today.

What People Are Saying …

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.

Exceptional personalized holistic care. Helps keep Mom’s mind active and she flourishes with the nurturing care. Especially of value currently given the COVID restrictions. We are genuinely pleased with our mom's care.

Resident's Daughter, Memory Care

Thinking back on all the great care you and your team have given her at CRISTA, we thank you for all that. I am sure it made a difference in the quality of her life.

I appreciate the personal relationship I have with the staff and the good communication they give me.

I am so stunned by all the amazing people who live at CRISTA. The depth of their stories, their experiences are so powerful. They are fascinating and I learn something new every day! Such a wealth of intellect, experiences, and fun loving people. I love living here.
