Activities

At Highgate, our goal is to help every resident live a life of purpose and joy. To achieve this, older adults require a wealth of socially, mentally and physically enriching experiences. Seniors who stay active with others decline more slowly than those who become isolated and sedentary. That’s why our Life Enhancement Program is so important, and why we encourage everyone to participate. It includes:

  • Physical Activities – Walking, yoga, conductorcise, bands and weights, exercise games like Wii bowling, outdoor outings
  • Intellectual Stimulation – Current events discussions, puzzles, technology classes, creative pursuits, guest speakers, cultural field trips
  • Socialization – Large and small group get-togethers, musical guests and sing-alongs, gardening activities, resident-run functions, special interest clubs, community interactive events, hobby clinics, Family Night, special celebrations
  • Philanthropic Ventures – Residents use their special skills and talents to share with others, contributing to the community and their own sense of purpose
  • Spiritual Wellness – Multi-faith worship opportunities, Bible study

These engaging activities offer a variety of health-related benefits, such as:

  • Increasing appetite
  • Relieving chronic pain
  • Improving communication
  • Promoting cognitive growth
  • Helping residents sleep better
  • Gaining strength and mobility
  • Providing emotional well-being

At Highgate, we learn from our residents what is meaningful to them, and based on their current interests, provide a constantly evolving program of activities that allow them to do what they most enjoy in life.

Keith Richstad
Executive Director
Highgate at Wenatchee

Keith's first experience in assisted living was as a young grandson visiting the community in which his grandmother resided. After graduating from Western Washington University in 2009, Keith began a career in the field, joining Highgate at Bellingham as the Assistant Resident Care Coordinator. In April of 2012, Keith accepted an opportunity to join the Executive Director in Training Program while also acting as Assistant Executive Director. A year later he was promoted to Executive Director of Highgate at Wenatchee. Keith's favorite part about working at Highgate: "I especially enjoy those moments when a resident is experiencing something for the first time. I'll never forget a 99-year-old resident telling me with a giant smile that this was her first time celebrating Mardi Gras. You're never too old to experience something new!”
