People flourish when their daily lives have a structure and a foundation to build upon. A recent study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information revealed that older adults who adopt a daily routine report stronger feelings of life satisfaction and experience fewer healthcare interventions.
To help residents establish a schedule that promotes active and connected lives, Coterie Cathedral Hill presents more than 50 unique, immersive engagements each week.
“Every experience is thoughtfully planned to keep an inspiring and engaged life for our residents,” says Jerome Esguerra, Resident Engagement Director at Coterie Cathedral Hill. “We curate events that contribute to a well-rounded life by promoting personal fitness, art and culture, socialization, health and wellness, lifelong learning, and family bonds.”
Each of these themes is reflected in a diverse menu of daily events. Residents can join in for Bocce and Bellinis on the rooftop terrace, add another voice to the Conversations on Art discussions in the club room, and attend An Evening on the Amalfi Coast, with dinner, authentic regional wines, seafood dishes, and folk music.
With an array of dynamic opportunities to choose from, residents can craft a personal itinerary that brings them joy, knowledge, and purpose. Some events are singular opportunities, while others are simply part of the fabric of life at Coterie Cathedral Hill.
“Walk the Bay is a popular weekly engagement that allows residents to discover the beautiful areas of San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area,” Esguerra said. “Sunday Supper is another favorite. It’s a chance for residents to create bonds with their neighbors and nourish a sense of community within Coterie.”
Coterie makes adopting an active lifestyle easier and more enjoyable than ever before. With the San Francisco skyline to serve as inspiration, residents can practice aquatic fitness and aerobics in the heated rooftop terrace pool. Elevation Health offers personalized fitness programs in Coterie's private gym with regular sessions in tai chi, hatha yoga, and strength and balance. Or residents may wish to discover the invigorating benefits of spring-resistance training – instructor Jill Harris offers private sessions in her FitSprings studio located inside the Coterie Cathedral Hill building.
Establishing a schedule is not a strict regimen to be adhered to, but rather, it’s a way to set a foundation for the day. Quoted in the Wall Street Journal, aging specialist Dr. Ken Dychtwald likens a daily schedule to preparing a delicious meal for oneself. “People need to think about which ingredients will mix in to make it a good day,” Dychtwald says. “A lot depends on personal needs, interest, and body chemistry.”
With dynamic engagements designed to appeal to a wide range of interests, Coterie Cathedral Hill ensures residents have no shortage of ingredients to select from as they craft a daily routine they can truly savor.
