Maria’s Place is a holistic approach to aging gracefully. Maria’s Place provides tools that touch upon four major components that can help one thrive and stay independent for as long as possible. These components are mental, social, emotional, and physical. See below for more details.
To keep our brains engaged, we must challenge and hone our minds throughout our lives. Wherever you are mentally, you will find a challenge in this activity booklet. Guaranteed to tease the brain and keep you sharp.
We are social beings meant to connect with others.
Be it in the same room or from afar, our craft activity is a wonderful way to connect with a relative such as a grandchild. Our recipe of the month provides a similar social arm. Join us weekly on Wednesdays for our Zoom Activity Socials.
We also provide a highlighted story of a Maria’s Place community member each month in our activity booklet. Giving you an opportunity to reminisce and, if you like, share your own experience with us.
Processing emotions via self-reflection is an integral part of our holistic health. Without allowing mind and body to process emotions and events in our lives, we can feel stuck and dissatisfied.
Our journal prompts direct our clients to reflect upon mind, body, spirit, and action so they can move easier through emotional hurdles or blockages. These journal prompts will help facilitate the silver linings of life and emote gratitude and positive emotions.
Our activities, from crafts to yoga to recipes, focus on physical dexterity. As the saying goes, “Use it or lose it.” Our goal is to develop activities that can provide dexterity challenges and engagement to keep us physically sharp.
