Rock the Ages

This unique rock'n'roll chorus is comprised of singers, experienced and new, who want to learn NEW popular music - not the music they grew up with! Music and singing are great for the brain, memory, camaraderie and general well-being. Weekly practices are open to all.

Corridor 'Reps'

Our residents play an active role in our Emergency Management System. "Corridor Representatives" attend monthly safety meetings on behalf of their floor - and report back to their neighbors with any important updates. Corridor Reps also coordinate with staff in welcoming new residents, and executing evacuation drills.

Meditation

Meditation and mindfulness practices have proven beneficial to our mental and physical well-being, and offer support for our spiritual journeys, whatever form they may take. Aging brings its own set of challenges and our meditation and sharing creates as sense of community in which to meet them.
