Residents enjoy three chef-prepared meals per day in the on-site eatery, and can also prepare their own meals using their in-room kitchenettes. Guided exercise classes, happy hours, crafts, cards and bingo keep residents active and engaged on-site, while trips to nearby museums and cultural events let seniors explore the local area under trained supervision. Personalized help with daily tasks is available and medication management services help seniors stay on top of their prescriptions with full peace of mind.
