VERO BEACH, Fla., Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — As the first days of fall arrived, residents of Watercrest Columbia Assisted Living and Memory Care celebrated an authentic Oktoberfest experience from the comforts of their own luxury senior living community.

The sights, sounds, and smells of Oktoberfest filled the air, engaging residents in a multisensory experience that enlivened the senses with the traditional music and iconic tastes of Germany.  Guests donned their most authentic German attire, dancing to Polka music and tasting authentic German dishes and lagers. Laughter and lively conversations filled the air as residents and guests exclaimed Prost! and clinked their glasses in celebration.
