Solheim Lutheran Home Launches a New Blog of Interest to Seniors in Southern California

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - The Solheim Blog ( publishes news and information of interest to seniors and their loved ones looking for up to date information on continuing care, residential living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing with a slice of life fun!

Solheim -- which means "sun home," in Norwegian -- is definitely bright in its outlook, providing a vital life for seniors. The Solheim Blog highlights the activities of seniors engaged in a full-range of activities that enrich body, mind and spirit. Exercise classes, Spanish class, arts and crafts, bridge games, genealogy class, spelling tournaments, yoga, book club, breakfast club, men's club, computer class, and Bible study classes are just some of the activities to be detailed on the new blog. Solheim boasts 8 activity directors specializing in organizing lectures, classes, concerts, crafts and outings for all four levels of care.

Solheim Lutheran Home ( strives to reach beyond maintenance of physical health for seniors. Our commitment to our residents is to provide an abundant life with love, peace, dignity and security.

Solheim has a wheelchair friendly bus to transport residents throughout the greater Los Angeles area, to entertainment such as the LA Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl, concerts in the park, Nixon Library, Dana Point, Monrovia Canyon Park and Descanso Gardens.
