Senior Living Enrichment at The Lodge at Manito

Within the walls of our supportive senior living community, friendships form fast and residents feel like family. The bright interior serves as an inviting setting for relaxation or socialization, and when you sprinkle in three chef-prepared meals daily and cozy living spaces, it’s not surprising that The Lodge at Manito is the first choice for senior living enrichment in the Illinois area.

In addition to person-centered care, wellness is a major focus of ours. We offer a wide variety of amenities and activities as part of our wellness programming for seniors, but another major part of wellness is regular engagement and social well-being.

The Lodge at Manito staff does a wonderful job at ensuring senior residents maintain an engaging, active lifestyle via the implementation of special senior living events throughout the year in addition to the amenities and activities residents enjoy daily. The staff also works closely with resident families and encourages their participation in planned events so that their loved one feels comfortable, too.

Many people wonder what the difference is between senior living communities like The Lodge at Manito and other facilities, like nursing homes, and the answer is senior living enrichment.

The holistic healing our residents regularly enjoy through the amenities, outings for seniors and special senior living events we hold provide social wellness that you just can’t find in every senior living community.


In honor of National Aviation Day, residents had a blast crafting personal toy airplanes and then even more fun sending them soaring to see who made their plane the most aerodynamic! September was a busy month for residents as they enjoyed a nice picnic in the great outdoors along with a tie-dye day where seniors had the opportunity to create their own unique shirts that they certainly enjoy flaunting from time to time! These fun activities for seniors happen often and outdoors as much as possible because residents love the fresh air. Not to mention, partaking in these group activities is perfect for promoting social wellness.


Outside of planned activities and special events, day-to-day life brings plenty of enjoyment for residents courtesy of our abundant amenities and robust activity schedule. Each resident has access to pursue the following:

  • Fitness, creative, social and educational activities
  • Scheduled group outings
  • Resident-sponsored clubs for a variety of interests
  • Up to three chef-prepared, nutritious meals served daily
  • Scheduled resident and family meetings
