The face of today’s “senior” is changing. Not only are people living longer, but many retire later while others take early retirement. Some call 70 the new 50 because no longer are seniors content sitting around. They are active, learning, and contributing to their communities while connecting with others making cross-country moves to be closer to friends and grandchildren.

Programming is diverse, ranging from sports leagues and card games to special interest groups and theater trips. Services include wellness programs like foot clinics, massages and disease prevention classes.
