Blue Mountain Village knows that socializing and continued activities are necessary to help maintain and improve cognitive and physical abilities of retired residents. It is imperative to not only provide excellent medical care but also ensure retired residents are stimulated and continue to participate in activities so as to keep their minds active and alert. To this end, residents in the Blue Mountain Retirement community are invited and encouraged to actively participate in activities held at the Haven.
Over and above the Clinic Services and Nursing Sister visits, the Haven hosts many physical activities on a weekly basis, including Wellness Exercises, Carpet Bowls and activities by the Occupational Therapist. Social activities include Bingo, Church Services, Movie Clubs, Book Clubs and Morning Teas.
The Retirement Estate has a clubhouse, used on a regular basis for various events, most recently the very popular wine tasting and quiz evening. The Clubhouse Committee actively participates in the annual CANSA Breast Health Walk that takes place at Blue Mountain Village, by manning the Boerewors stall and donating the proceeds to CANSA.
The Nit and Natter group is hugely popular and regular ‘bring and braais’ and sundowners take place.
The Village is available to residents of the Retirement Estate, The Gables and the Haven, for walks, picnicking at the dam or just to enjoy the wildlife the estate offers, including Zebras and Springbuck.
Each year at the AGM, directorship for the Retirement Estate is chosen by homeowners of the Retirement Estate. The five portfolios that are represented are the Haven, Maintenance, Security, the Clubhouse and the Gardens.
Part of the duties of the Directors is to ensure the Estate remains well managed and continues to offer a safe and quality lifestyle to all residents.
