Community Life – Reinspirement

It’s where your lifetime of experience comes together with new friends and their lifetimes of experience to create the experience of a lifetime! Whether you enjoy filling your days with culture, crafts, cuisine, cardio, conversation or cards – there is something for everyone.

Residents participate in all aspects of our community. They have committees that meet regularly with our Volunteer Board of Directors, our CEO and Executive Director, our Lifestyles Director and our Executive Chef and Dining Managers. Together we grow our community experience in the spirit of the residents who live here. They decide what events and activities they like and want to attend. They decide what travel trips they make. They decide how they would like to contribute to their community experience by sharing their own personal talents with other residents, or volunteer outside of the community. They choose the life they envision – we simply support their desire to do so. They live the independent lifestyle they have always loved and we handle the rest.
