The Residents truly enjoy Michaels’ weekly Body Alignment class. It is a low energy, chair exercises that concentrate on breathing, stretching and mobility. Everyone should be here!! This day more than half of our Residents were in class today! Good times had by all!
Our Residents had the pleasure to take a trip to the famous Bissinger’s Chocolate Factory in St. Louis. What an interesting place and interesting history. And the chocolate? YUM! Betty and Mildred (pictured together below) were ready to play Lucy and Ethel in the candy conveyor skit! Haha!!
We all went to lunch at Caleco’s downtown afterward. Biggest menu in downtown StL. Great fun, great food and great friends!
Exercise is a big part of the weekly activities at The Rockwood. With that, our Residents were excited to start a new exercise, Tai Chi. Taught by a master, Lin. They are learning how their bodies can work in different ways than what they are used to. Such a calming, flowing exercise that will make them stronger and more flexible. We look for longevity, and being fit in body and mind is a great gateway for a healthy life.
A couple Residents braved the storms and ventured out to see the Morpho Mania at the Butterfly House. They were not going to miss this outing due to some rain. Can you spot the butterflies in each picture? The only morpho that sat long enough to take a picture of was the one with beaten wings who needed a rest and landed on my arm! Ha! Good times!!
