If you’re like many people, the healthy resolutions you made at the beginning of the year are beginning to falter. The holidays are behind us, and the winter doldrums might be settling in. Despite having the best of intentions, it can be a struggle to stick with new year’s goals to eat healthy and exercise faithfully. Unlike the warmer months of the year, when it just seems easier to stay active and engaged, winter can tempt us to stay indoors and hibernate until spring.
As winter makes its return, seniors and caregivers often find themselves spending more time indoors. That’s especially true once the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over. It’s a situation that can cause cabin fever for both the senior and their family caregiver. Research shows that as much as 15% of people find the winter months to be a difficult time to stay positive.

At Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL), we believe our people and our relationships play essential roles in our continued success and stability. For over nine decades, our mission has informed our work. It has helped us create compassionate, vibrant, and supportive environments at each of our communities. And to design resident services that nurture the body, mind, and spirit.
In celebration of National Model Railroad Month, Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL) is highlighting Green Ridge Village’s Model Railroad – the Green Ridge & Big Springs HO Scale Model Railroad. Green Ridge Village along with Quincy Village and Ware Presbyterian Village all have Model Railroad Clubs for residents to participate in and enjoy.
Every year, we take the time to recognize the men and women who have bravely served our country. Did you know that currently, in the US – there are more than 11 million seniors that have served in the military, which is over 15% of the current senior population.
With Giving Tuesday coming up next month on November 29th, we wanted to share one of the ways that Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL) supports not just the organization itself, but the people who truly make PSL what it is. Who’s that, you may ask? Our wonderful staff!
