Senior Wellness

Your well-being is our top priority.

There’s more to wellness than diet and exercise. That’s why we take a holistic approach that encompasses eight dimensions of wellness. There are programs and classes to help energize your body, engage your mind and nurture your spirit. It’s all designed to help you thrive.

Our fitness center offers group classes and personalized programs geared to residents’ needs and abilities. Popular classes designed for senior wellness include yoga, tai chi, Pilates and strength training — all led by instructors certified by the National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS). We also stay active with Wii® sports. For more ways to stay fit and have fun, residents can hop on our bus and head to the Jewish Community Center nearby; Laurel Circle residents receive a free JCC membership. Nutrition also plays a part in physical wellness. Our dietitian works with our culinary team to provide nutritious, balanced meals that meet individual needs.

Participating in social activities helps you feel less isolated and may even add years to your life. At Laurel Circle, residents have a wealth of opportunities to connect with others and make new friends. There are special interest clubs, classes, committees, outings, plus annual celebrations, birthdays and anniversaries. See our social calendar for more.

Support for life’s challenges gives residents comfort and strength in difficult times. This may come in the form of grief and mental health counseling, informal circles of friends, or interactions with staff members. You’ll always have someone looking out for you at Laurel Circle.

Being intellectually engaged boosts your mood and may improve your cognitive skills. Brain games, book clubs, bridge games, educational seminars and lifelong learning classes are just some of the ways Laurel Circle residents stay sharp.

Serving on resident committees, volunteering on- and off-campus, leading discussion groups and mentoring offer opportunities for giving back to the community. Helping others is good for everyone, including yourself. Even a small act of kindness can make a big difference.

A warm and comfortable environment enhances residents’ lives. Gardens, green spaces and walking paths offer a breath of fresh air in a beautiful natural setting. Indoors, there are inviting spaces for relaxing with friends or burying your nose in a good book. Staff members also play a part in fostering a positive environment at Laurel Circle. They greet you by name and love to make your day a little brighter.

A strong spiritual sense can offer hope, strength and peace. Laurel Circle residents can nurture their spiritual selves through worship services, meditation, religious studies, music performances and more.

Residents benefit from a variety of services designed to support their health needs. That includes everything from wellness programs and preventive health screenings to therapy services and higher levels of care. Residents can also take advantage of our on-site medical clinic. The doctor on staff gets to know the residents really well and they love the convenience of having health services on their doorstep. If you have a question about any of our health services, our Health and Wellness Navigator can connect you with the resources you need.

The Health and Wellness Navigator is your point person for anything health related. For example, the Navigator can connect you with a fitness instructor or activities director to get you involved with classes that align with your interests and goals. If you need home health services in your independent living residence, the Navigator can help arrange it. Whatever it is — going from the hospital to rehabilitation or transitioning to a higher level of care at The Arbor — the Navigator is here to help you every step of the way.

The way to wellness.
