Our retirement community residents choose from an extensive menu of stimulating events and activities. The calendars you see here are current and accurate, with some activities repeated for continuity, and some that change for variety. To help our residents stay strong and stable, we offer nutritional guidance and exercise programs such as t’ai chi, Wi bowling, chair aerobics and accompanied walks in our beautiful neighborhood. Mental stimulation includes word games, game-show type fun quizzes and discussions of events in the news. Spirits are nourished with yoga and weekend prayer services. And we always make time for fun, with in-house parties, regular outings and twice-weekly guest entertainers.
