Staying Active and Connected in King of Prussia

The past few months have been a challenge for everyone, but especially for seniors. As aging populations are especially vulnerable to health crises like the coronavirus pandemic, many residents have hunkered down at their Canvas Valley Forge apartment to stay safe and healthy. While there are plenty of on-site amenities and ways to stay connected to neighbors right at home, the quarantine has likely left most people eager for some community connection. Luckily, our local business district has launched an online portal to allow you to do just that.

The King of Prussia District is running virtual events Monday-Thursday every week to help homebound local residents stay engaged, active and excited about living in the area. Here are just a few of the ways you can get involved, all without ever leaving your Canvas Valley Forge apartment:

Move Mondays: From 6-7 p.m., take part in a home workout led by a different fitness expert in the area each week. The workouts are designed for people of all ages and abilities, so even if you haven’t been too active the past few months, you can dive right into these sessions with no worries. No equipment is needed, and all sessions are completely free.

KOP Shop Hop: On Tuesdays, log on from noon-1 p.m. for a virtual shopping event featuring five of your favorite local shopping destinations. The event includes both retail and dining establishments that will offer great specials, giveaways and more, all designed for pickup and delivery shopping.

Takeout Tuesdays: Follow KOP District on Facebook for its weekly Tuesday giveaway of gift cards for local restaurants. Then get ordering!

Hump Day How To: On Wednesdays, the organization posts short, instructional videos from local businesses to help you hone lots of new skills while you’re at home. Learn about wine pairing, get decorating tips for your Canvas Valley Forge apartment and try a new recipe.

Couch Concerts: From 6-7 p.m. every Thursday, enjoy a free performance from local musicians. The music runs the gamut so you can find a show to suit any musical interest—and it’s a great way to learn about all the local talent abounding near your Canvas Valley Forge apartment!
