Avamere at St. Helens has a variety of activities for aging adults including:

  • Reminisce Crossword Puzzle:  Our residents enjoy this puzzle time. We take the crossword puzzle from this Reminisce Magazine (which covers events from the 40s, 50s, and 60s), enlarge the puzzle and give a copy to each person. The questions are read out loud and everyone gets a chance to share a guess. It is a great group activity. This represents an independent living activity that keeps the brain active.
  • Holiday Parties: Everyone who attends our monthly party really enjoys them. It is a time for everyone to be jolly and more playful. Residents invite friends and family members to come celebrate with us and, of course, dressing up according to that month’s theme is always extra special. Assisted Living in St. Helens has never been so fun.
  • Points of Interest: Our residents love to get out and see the sites around our independent and assisted living facility in St. Helens Oregon. Some of the places we have gone on group trips to include North West Rice Museum, Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, The Oregon Zoo, Sande’s School of Horsemanship, Oregon and Washington Casinos, plus many others. Every so often we will hop in the 15-passenger van and take a group trip to the beach!
  • Wii Bowling Tournaments: This is one of our most popular senior living activities. The St. Helens Lucky Strikes have even played teams from other Avamere campuses. Friendly competition is all part of the fun on our assisted living and independent living campus.
  • Resident Coupon Auction: For each activity a resident attends, they receive a coupon worth $1 to be spent at this monthly auction.  Each participant receives a paddle to bid on the items of their choice. The auction has become a monthly activities staple.
  • Games:  There always seems to be a game going on somewhere in our assisted living facility. It might be anything from indoor horseshoes, or billiards, to ring toss, bean bag baseball, or washoes out in the beautiful assisted living courtyard. For those who like calmer games, we have Bunco, bingo, scrabble, pinochle, cards, puzzles and many others which our independent living cottage residents often join.
  • Book Club: Our residents meet every week to discuss books, magazine, or newspaper articles. Each resident comments on what they read and if they would recommend it to others. One particular book that was read aloud was Outlaws on the River by Joe Schwab. The owner of the book met the author a few years ago and had him autograph her book. It was a great way to share something dear with the rest of the residents. Keeping our independent and assisted living activities pertinent and personal is our goal.

This is only a taste of the activities that happen at Avamere at St. Helens. We keep very busy and residents are certainly welcome to attend as many as they choose. It is an exciting place to work and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
