Aster Gardens Newsletter October 2023
Did you exercise your brain today?
Amazingly enough, there are activities and games that exercise your brain and help to keep it fit. These games can improve memory and cognition, sharpening critical thinking skills that many of us do not use as much in retirement as we did when we were working full-time.
How to make an Oreo pie!
Discover a holistic approach to food, community, and health. Enjoy a baking demonstration on how to make a favourite treat! Learn about gut health and nutrition. All this and more in this new episode of Optima Living TV.
Optima Living outdid itself this year by collecting an impressive 22,000 pounds of food for food banks, or the equivalent of about 25,000 meals for people in Alberta and British Columbia.
This collective effort fostered a sense of unity and compassion among the Optima Living family, and stands as a testament to our dedication to making a positive difference beyond resident spaces.
Recently at Aster Gardens
We value being able to learn new things from different cultures, and recently we were able to experience Jamaican music and foods! This was such a great time for our community.
Thank you to everyone who brought donations for the Strathcona County Food Bank. We are so thankful to be a part of such a generous community!
