Quilting through Covid: How Residents at Watercrest Columbia Assisted Living and Memory Care are Making their Mark


VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Across our nation, individuals have adapted to a different way of living due to the health and safety precautions of Covid-19.  At Watercrest Columbia Assisted Living and Memory Care, the leadership team has inspired residents to utilize their passion and creativity to create memories during this historically significant time.

As part of Watercrest's signature Live Exhilarated™ programming, Watercrest Columbia residents formed a 'Quilting through Covid' group, to spread unity and joy.  The group, led by Wellness Director Liz Swygert, meets twice weekly in a safely distanced environment to encourage social interaction, maintain resident well-being, and inspire residents to creatively express their feelings during this time.

"Quilts tell a unique story, and this is a historically significant story to tell," says Swygert, Wellness Director of Watercrest Columbia.

Watercrest Senior Living has a unique approach to healthy aging, focusing on individuals achieving personal wholeness through participation in programs aligned with seven facets of wholeness.  These facets provide the Live Exhilarated™ program framework which focuses on celebrating the residents' story, encouraging their pursuit of new passions, optimizing their experience, and offering variety and choice to all residents.

"Our quilting group provides residents with a sense of normalcy and an opportunity to create memories," says Renada Weathersbee, Community Program Director of Watercrest Columbia.  "We realize how critical everyday activities are to our resident's mental health and the creation of this group unifies residents and encourages a sense of pride and accomplishment."

Watercrest Columbia is ideally located at 1951 Clemson Road in the capital city of Columbia, South Carolina.  The neighboring area offers vibrant entertainment, dining, and a culturally rich heritage complete with historic sites and architectural beauty.
