Imagine your ideal retirement. Really picture what you had in mind for yourself. It was fulfilling, yes?

In your imaginings, you spent each day exactly how you decided to that morning. You had countless opportunities available to you, each more enticing than the last. You felt energized by each new day because you could make it yours. Right?

All of our residents enjoy the freedom to fill their calendars however they wish. Whether that means participating in an early morning aquatics class in our crystal-clear pool or sleeping in and going out to a late show instead, residents choose how they spend the day.

Whole-Person Wellness

Our role, as we see it, is to provide ample opportunity for whole-person wellbeing. Our dedicated Life Enrichment and Wellness staff design a wealth of programs and activities. Each of these programs incorporates the Eight Dimensions of Wellness model. This model focuses on wellness, including:

  • Emotional
  • Environmental
  • Intellectual
  • Nutritional
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Spiritual
  • Vocational

Residents can count on a wide, exciting range of growth opportunities and experiences. With our support, they choose how to be actively engaged in a personally meaningful way.

  • Want to learn a new craft or skill? Absolutely!
  • Wish to spend the day visiting with neighbors and friends? You bet!
  • Hope to spend the day quietly, lost in a good book, drinking cup after cup of tea on your patio? Sounds great!
  • Look forward to sharing a meal with friends in one of our beautiful dining venues? See you there!
  • Itching to exercise in our convenient, state-of-the-art wellness facility? Yes!
  • Ready to fix that piece of furniture in our woodworking shop? You can do that, too!
