During the summer months, our residents can participate in weekly sports outings at a nearby community park. Some of the past activities have included kickball, soccer, Frisbee, and volley ball. Family and friends are always encourages to join in the fun.
There are several marathons offered in Chicago, such as the Chicago Marathon, Hot Chocolate Run, and Strides for Peace. Many of our residents have participated in the marathons by running/walking in them as well as volunteering in the medical tents.
With busy resident schedules, our own nutrition can sometimes fall to the bottom of the list. We bring in a registered dietician to discuss healthy eating options that fit into a resident schedule and help provide the tools to make better eating habits.
