The year 2020 has been full of surprises that have kept all of us on our toes and expecting the unexpected. Starting in March, we found ourselves doing everything we could to make sure our residents were safe as this pandemic transformed all our lives. The daily changes and new protocols were an unexpected challenge, but our team rolled up their sleeves and pushed through by forming a COVID response team whose primary goal was to make sure our community remained safe. At the same time, this dynamic team has continued their creative efforts to keep our residents entertained and socially active while following all safety protocols. Social interaction is essential for a senior’s mental and physical well-being as isolation is one of the biggest causes of depression and loneliness.
We have been able to safely provide socialization during this pandemic with a variety of activities, including exercise classes, gardening, Zoom calls with family, bingo, our “wine & cheese” hour, walking club, noodle ball, bible study, trivia, Wii bowling, and more!
In June, we slowly started moving new residents in with a rigorous screening process to ensure safety for our community. It has been a smooth transition for our new residents, and we are beyond excited that they have joined our community. Many people have realized how important socializing is as most were either alone or stuck in their house with nowhere to go before moving to Genesis Village.
Whether it’s during a pandemic or the long, cold winters in Ohio, living in a beautiful community filled with friends, an endless amount of fun activities, and helpful staff who can drive you to pick up your groceries is a benefit to all. Additionally, our on-site “Village Salon” meets your beauty needs, while the convenient dining options include eat-in or to-go for every meal. We also have our “Solid Ground Café” with the most welcoming barista who will whip up your favorite specialty coffee each morning, and a luxurious pool and hot tub with the beautiful sun shining through the skylights. Although these are just a few of the first-class amenities offered at Genesis Village, the list goes on how living in a 5-Star Community where you can age in place is the ideal way to spend your retirement years.
Please join us as we have spacious studios and one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with a variety of layouts available to meet your preferences. Genesis Village is an all-inclusive, resort-like community that will truly knock your socks off and bring a smile to your face every day.
