Close to Biscayne Bay and Mount Sinai Hospital, Bay Oaks Historic Retirement Residence in Miami, FL, provides assisted living services in a charming setting. Aiming to treat residents as family, this community houses seniors in classically appointed rooms and serves chef-prepared meals made using organically grown produce from on-site gardens. Planned activities ranging from strength training, yoga and arts and crafts to games, movie nights and off-site excursions foster a sense of community, promote socialization and keep minds and bodies fit. Beautiful grounds with flower gardens and orchards, as well as indoor and outdoor common areas, provide plenty of space for solitary introspection or chats with friends.
