Life Enrichment Services

The Avalon’s Life Enrichment Program provides the opportunity to extend our resident’s life experience with socialization, appropriate exercise and activities.  Our monthly activity calendar includes daily opportunities to exercise both the body and the intellect. Activities take place at the Avalon and also include outings to other locations.

Our activities calendar includes workouts, arts and crafts, current events discussions, gardening, sports tournaments, sing alongs, movies, journalism and cooking club meetings, coffee socials and birthday celebrations.

Examples for outings in recent years include  attending a performance on Theater Night at the Bardavon Theater in Poughkeepsie, fishing trip to a lake, outdoor music performance during the summer, shoping trips to malls, etc.

The seniors at the Avalon often stage their own theater productions. Theater night is a big event. Applause and photo opportunities make it a memorable evening not only for our residents but also for their families, who get to see their loved ones actively involved.

Many of our residents enjoy participating in our Residents Council, whose members meet on a monthly basis and advise management of any suggestions they might have to enhance living at the Avalon.

We also have an in-house beauty salon (this service is one of the few costs not included in our monthly, all-inclusive fee) that some of our residents are happy to use rather than going outside of the facility.

Our residents have the opportunity and the encouragement to live a full life at the Avalon Assisted Living facility and we are proud of the fact that many of them take advantage of the various options made available to them.
