Enrich your life
Engage your mind, heart & senses
There’s always something going on at the Village for you to take part in, whether it’s Tai Chi or chair aerobics, choir practice, a game of trivia or a crafting project, a trip to Wrigley Field, a piano and violin performance or Wii Bowling. But it’s more than a single excursion or event, it’s all about celebrating life.
What makes Central Baptist Village truly special is how our programs and activities successfully bring people together to encourage, appreciate, honor, engage with and lift up one another. Some of our unique programs include our Dream Adventures, where we turn a resident’s wish into a reality. Our residents and staff also host events for the public including a Car Show, Craft Fair and a Lawn Party for Grandparent’s Day. We don’t stop there, our intergenerational programs and events bring residents together with local schools, scout groups, church groups and we even have a collaboration with Old Town School of Folk Music.
Every day, throughout the community and across all settings and levels of memory support, our Life Enrichment staff create and support resident-directed programming that work to nourish minds, bodies and spirits. This is always central to our approach to well-being, even now, during the pandemic.
Currently, while under pandemic restrictions, we have had to adapt, modify or postpone certain kinds of programs and activities in order to safely observe social distancing and other COVID-19 protocols. In addition to the activities scheduled below, we also offer seasonal, holiday and special events regularly throughout the year. Keeping everyone connected to loved ones and the outside world has also been one of our top priorities.
