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.

Caela Bianchi
Executive Director
Highgate at Yakima

Caela is a longtime resident of Yakima and received her B.A. in Business Administration from Washington State University. She has extensive experience in the healthcare field, having worked as a Certified Ophthalmic Technician for 18 years, followed by 10 years managing primary care clinics. When presented with the opportunity to step into assisted living, she was thrilled because this would allow her direct interaction with seniors and their families, an aspect of healthcare she had been missing. “This is the most rewarding and touching position I’ve ever had. I think the most fulfilling part for me is when I can help a family member reconnect with their loved one and reestablish their relationship – where they become the family member again and are no longer the caregiver.”
