Today’s seniors want a fulfilling lifestyle. That’s why they are leaving the work of home ownership behind and embracing independent living at places like Cristwood Park in Shoreline, WA, and Crista Shores in Silverdale, WA, like never before. CRISTA Senior Living is at the forefront of this movement. But what does it take to truly thrive in this stage of life?

A Fulfilling Lifestyle Requires Taking Control of Your Health

Maintaining an active lifestyle is essential and according to the National Institute on Aging it’s about a lot more than just getting your steps in each day. That’s why communities like Cristwood Park and Crista Shores provide activities for residents that they enjoy! From fitness classes offered 24/7 to convenient trails for walking, a pool for water aerobics, horseshoes, ping pong, and gardening, the community at CRISTA Senior Living keeps seniors engaged in healthy pursuits every day of the year.

Building Connections Leads to a Fulfilling Lifestyle

Creating new friendships and maintaining social connections makes life worthwhile. Both Cristwood Park and Crista Shores have abundant social activities, from resident-led interest groups to multi-generational activities with children from King’s and local schools, opportunities to volunteer and Christian fellowship. CRISTA Senior Living is designed to foster a sense of community and camaraderie.

Lifelong Learning Enhances a Fulfilling Lifestyle

Keeping your mind active is just as important as keeping your body active. That’s why senior independent living communities like CRISTA offer a range of lifelong learning opportunities from classes designed to enhance mental acuity to art rooms, woodworking, book clubs, writing clubs, and excursions into the community to enjoy theater and museums.

A Fulfilling Lifestyle Includes Giving Back

Finally, many seniors find great fulfillment in giving back to their communities. Both Cristwood Park and Crista Shores encourage residents to engage in volunteer work, benefiting the larger community and the seniors. Our residents are active in local churches and volunteer in schools as well as in community organizations.

In conclusion, thriving in senior independent living is all about taking control of your health, building connections, continuing to learn, and giving back. With communities like Cristwood Park and Crista Shores leading the way, seniors have ample opportunities to live a fulfilling and independent life.

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.
