    A Youthful Lift for Our Summer of Activities

    When I think of summer, I think of life and energy. It’s the time of year when the sun shines at it’s brightest, feeding our thirst for energy and refreshing our spirits. When I think of summer, I think of the fervor of youth.

Therapy & Wellness

An Ounce of Prevention

Our therapy programs make sure our residents are as healthy as they can be. Most of our residents participate in a personalized maintenance program that helps them maintain their strength and mobility. We also offer a unique wellness program that meets twice per week. The seated program includes breathing exercises, light aerobics and discussions on healthy living.

With a focus on the mind-body connection and an open and caring atmosphere, the wellness program is another proactive approach to healthy and happy living.

    Recreation Director

    “I like to make sure our residents have plenty of opportunities to get involved here.”

    Sometimes my job is like being a PI. I like to make sure residents have plenty of opportunities to get involved and get to know each other. And if I notice someone is having a rough day or isn’t connecting, I take it upon myself to see what their particular interests are.

    That may mean a conversation with the resident, a phone call to a relative or paying close attention to clues from their past. Over the last 20 years I’ve done everything from typing up a personalized schedule of baseball games to starting a new program to see who shows up. It’s all about making things happen for the residents.
