Seniors living at home can find community and engagement at PrimeLife Enrichment

 

A cheerful garden welcomes visitors to the PrimeLife Enrichment Center.

PrimeLife is a place where friendships are made, creative outlets are pursued, and bodies are challenged by physical activity. It is a place where people come together for a meal and conversation. A place where buddies meet to play games and do puzzles. Walking around the track is an opportunity to solve the world’s problems or just share a laugh. Moving in the warm water pool allows older bodies to stretch and maintain muscle, while challenging participants. Our land classes encourage dancing, yoga, balance, and weight training, while reminding us all our bodies are amazing!

We encourage our members to think and be involved by engaging them in programming that is member driven. Clubs and groups are by request and often led by members. Our card groups, puzzles and book clubs challenge the mind; while art class and needle work clubs foster creativity and dexterity. Theater Club shares information and opportunities for all to attend and participate in the local arts community. We have an active transportation team that drives seniors to PrimeLife, appointments, or wherever they need to go – lack of transportation should never cause loss of independence.

By being a long-standing social service agency, we provide adults with information, referrals, and assistance. We are an organization where caregivers can get respite and attend support groups. We continue to be the place where families look to find opportunities for loved ones to be among peers and continue to be valued.

We are the best kept secret in Hamilton County, and we are about to let this cat out of the bag.
