5. Masquerade Signature Experience

It was a grand evening at Wildewood Downs! Members danced the night away for our Masquerade Signature Experience! Members kicked off the experience with dance lessons from a local professional.

3. Active Aging Week

Each year, Wildewood Downs proudly participates in Active Aging Week to show how The Weller Life allows Members to defy the stereotypes associated with aging. This year, it was kicked off vibrantly with a color walk around the community! Staff and Members came together and cheered each other on as we completed our community walk! Members tried their hand at Belly Dancing! Wellness Director Teka taught Members the different techniques. Participants laughed and danced the entire time! On Thursday, our community hosted some very adorable friends for Goat Yoga! Nine Nigerian Miniature baby goats accompanied Members through their yoga flow.

2. Sushi Roll Competition

Our partners, Live Long Well Care, a home health care company, hosted a sushi roll creation with our Executive Team! Each contestant had all the ingredients to prepare a delicious sushi roll and the task of seeing who could make the tastiest! The judges compared taste, consistency, and presentation. The Members had a wonderful time watching the participants whip up something delicious!

1. Family and Friends BBQ

Every month, our community hosts a Member’s Friends and Family BBQ; saying it is a hit is truly an understatement. This event brings together a few of Wildewood Downs’s favorite things: friends, family, food, and music!

And just like that, this year is ending, and we are ready to start another fantastic year full of fabulous events. We can’t wait to see what this year holds and how it will surpass this year’s events!
