Oakmont of Santa Clarita not only offers educational events for residents of the luxury senior living community, but for the Santa Clarita Valley community at large.
For example, last month a gastroenterologist from UCLA gave a presentation on healthy eating for digestion.
“We are what we eat, and a lot of digestive diseases are a result of what we put into our bodies,” said Mary Dembkowski of Oakmont of Santa Clarita. “Staying away from processed food was the biggest message I came away with.”
On July 30, Oakmont of Santa Clarita partnered with the Senior Resource Alliance to hold a free workshop called “Life’s Last Chapter.”
Some of the topics discussed included end-of-life planning, hospice care and who qualifies, California state laws that protect consumers when it comes to pre-planning funeral expenses, VA benefits and more.
“All of that information (is) so needed, and yet we don’t think about it until the time comes,” said Dembkowski, a member of the Senior Resource Alliance. “Our goal is to prepare you for those types of things.”
In addition to educational events surrounding the topic of aging, Oakmont of Santa Clarita also offers a variety of entertainment activities for its residents, including a “Happy Hour” every Wednesday featuring live entertainment.
The most recent Happy Hour event featured a comedy musical group that appeared at Oakmont of Santa Clarita for the first time, which was well-enjoyed by residents, according to Dembkowski.
“We have our wonderful happy hours every Wednesday with entertainment,” she said.
