A good majority of our residents are still very active and enjoy lectures, exercise, outings, music, theater and the arts. We have happy hour three times a week which is a very popular and well attended event. Residents can enjoy their favorite alcohol beverage or soda and snacks while discussing the latest news events and Creekside gossip. We have a wonderful activity director who is constantly conferring with our residents to make sure their wants and needs are met. Of course we have the typical activities such as bingo, maj jong, bridge and movies.
