Seniors at Spectrum Retirement Embrace a Lifestyle of Learning

in Activities

BE Inspired every day for a lifetime of happiness through growth.


Inspiration (in(t)-spə-ˈrā-shən): The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. We love this! Life is all about happiness through growth and learning. Inspiration comes in many forms, and it manifests itself in equally as many feelings, actions, and creative works.

A great novel might inspire you to write your own book or to embark on a grand travel adventure. A beautiful photograph of a bouquet might tickle the budding photographer within you. Or it might inspire you to plant a lovely flower garden. The birth of a great-grandchild could be the nudge you need to create the family tree you’ve been meaning to do all these years. A puppy’s sweet nuzzle could send you running to the local shelter to get your own or to become a volunteer. The power of inspiration is everywhere, and in retirement, you can grab hold and see where it takes you.

At Spectrum Retirement, we want you to find those avenues of inspiration and exploration. The best way to stimulate and expand your mind is by harnessing new opportunities, exploring curiosities, and learning more and more every day. Yes, you’ve been around the block a time or two, but think of the things you don’t yet know! Can you speak German? Why not learn? Have you penned a memoir? Wondering if you’d be any good at playing the piano? Painting a portrait? The only way to find out is to give it shot!

Embark on an Inspired Lifestyle!

Our programs are designed to inspire and engage. Join a writing club to practice Haiku or take a technology course so you can Snapchat with your grandchildren. Learn to make London chicken in the demonstration kitchen. Listen to a guest speaker talking about the fermenting process and then brew your own beer. Watch a documentary on penguins in Antarctica. A passion for learning is a passion for life! We create opportunities for you to be inspired around every corner.

Our signature activities, classes, and excursions will motivate you to see more, do more, and be more! And if you don’t find exactly what lights your fire, just ask. We’ll do everything in our power to make it happen.

Imagine yourself scaling a rock wall at the local climbing gym. What would it be like to soar above the city in a helicopter? Relax on a river cruise, take in the scenery, and learn a little about the cities you stop in. If you think you don’t have time for adventures — think again! The possibilities for inspiration, learning, and growing are limitless. And it’s all so easily accessible when you enjoy the maintenance-free Spectrum lifestyle. No cooking or housekeeping unless you choose to do it!

Maybe your inspiration comes from friends and family. Game night with your neighbors has never been easier. Go ahead and grab Yahtzee or cards for a round of Rummy. Invite the kids and grandkids over for dinner, and then you can all catch a movie in the community theater. Take a family vacation to Disney World or an extended road trip to visit as many National Parks as you can while the kids are on summer vacation. You can all learn about the climate, animal species, and plant life in each location. The world is your oyster and your inspiration to learn something new every day — take advantage of it!

Learning, making new memories, recounting old ones, and keeping your mind active are all important for cognitive health. Look at every opportunity to be inspired as a chance to brush up on your brain power while having fun!
