Studies have shown that senior citizens who remain physically and socially active are less likely to experience dementia, depression, and other neurological disorders that can greatly diminish your quality of life. Therefore, Independence Village is committed to offering a wealth of activities for their residents so that there is something for everyone to enjoy. Below is just a small sample of the daily activities offered at both Independence Village Communities in Naperville and Rockford.
If you experience joint pain or stiffness, you can find natural relief with yoga and Thai Chi classes offered throughout each week. You might also enjoy more freeform exercise with a walk around the beautifully landscaped premises of the community.
Billiards and board games
Whether you are a pool shark, poker player, or video game enthusiast, you can find the games you want to play and plenty of fellow residents to enjoy them with. Organized tournaments take place each month, but you are always free to organize your own games in open facilities with professionally maintained equipment.
Arts and crafts
To explore your creative side, you can take a crafts class to learn how to knit, scrapbook, or paint. Creative writing classes are also offered to help residents express themselves and share their unique life experiences on paper.
While Independence Village always has exciting activities taking place on-site, there is much to explore in the Rockford and Naperville communities. Outings are planned several times per month to visit farmers’ markets, local restaurants and breweries, area attractions, and shopping centers.
