Getting Into the Esprit of Dancing
Resident Roger continues enjoying his passion for dancing
Roger moved into Silverado Lake Zurich in December 2018. He moved in emergently after his son realized it was no longer safe for him to be living on his own. At first, Roger was apprehensive about moving to our community and wanted to move back to his own home. However, all that quickly changed when he moved into our enrichment cottage, and by the next morning, he was dancing and already making friends with our associates!
In fact, Roger's passion in life was for dancing and he even used to be a professional dancer! When our team brought him to our Nexus® neighborhood, we immediately noticed his demeanor improve and we knew this was where he belonged. The community became his dance floor as he asked our associates to dance with him and would even teach those who were willing to learn. His jovial nature even went beyond dancing, as he was always happy to help other residents and participate in engagements. It is not uncommon to see him socializing and having a fun time with other residents at our community!
Silverado Lake Zurich recently opened Esprit, a Silverado program that combines evidence-based Nexus® at Silverado brain health programming with active, experiential living, and there was no doubt in anyone's mind that this was the perfect place for Roger. Roger is now officially one of the founding residents of Esprit, joining other residents in daily activities such as baking banana bread, playing on the drum and, of course, dancing!
