Whether it’s our caring community, maintenance-free homes or outstanding amenities, there are numerous reasons to choose independent living at Fellowship Village. Here are our top five reasons:
1. You’ll Enjoy a Strong Sense of Community
Fellowship Village is more than simply a place to live. It’s a community. As we grow older, we often lose social connections through retirement, family members moving elsewhere or friends passing away. This can have a negative impact on our physical and mental health. Living in Fellowship Village is like living in a small town. It’s a friendly, welcoming community where residents look out for each other.
When resident Helen Beglin moved in, she was surprised by how much community mattered to her. She jokes that living here reminds her of college life, but without the tests.
There are countless opportunities to socialize with fellow residents at events, clubs (such as photography or walking groups) and over dinner, but there’s also no pressure to join or participate in activities. Independent living means you still have your own space in your own home and can spend your time as you choose.
2. Wave Goodbye to Household Chores
Does your heart sink when the first snowfall arrives and you have to dig out the shovel (and the car)? How about when your dishwasher’s acting up yet again, or when the lawn needs mowing? At Fellowship Village, we take care of indoor and outdoor home maintenance so you don’t have to. We give you more time to do the things you love.
Need to fix a faucet or replace a roof shingle? Just give us a call, and our friendly, experienced maintenance team will handle everything. We also take care of trash collection and housekeeping. As a resident, you’ll put away the vacuum and duster because you won’t be needing them while you enjoy the wealth of inspiring activities our leafy campus offers. And if cooking has always felt like a chore, you’ll be thrilled to ditch the kitchen and take advantage of our fabulous dining choices, including Wilson’s, our sophisticated tapas bar and lounge.
3. You can Stay Active and Healthy with Top-Notch Amenities
It’s no secret staying active boosts our physical and mental well-being as we grow older. Regular activity helps protect against cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and certain types of cancer. It can also stave off the onset of dementia. As an independent living resident, you’ll benefit from the highly regarded BRAVO Wellness program, with a personal coach creating a tailor-made plan to meet your needs.
Whether you’re into swimming laps in our heated pool, perfecting your skills on the putting green or hiking our nature trails with friends, there’s no shortage of fun ways to keep fit. We’re thrilled about the upcoming opening of our cutting-edge fitness center in 2023, complete with pickleball court, shuffleboard and a relaxing wellness spa.
What’s more, residents enjoy access to a full range of healthcare services at our medical center. It’s right here on campus and fully staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners and specialists.
4. Time to Nurture Hobbies Old and New
Just as physical activity is essential as we age, so is stimulating the mind. This doesn’t mean endless crosswords and Sudoku puzzles (though we love both). At Fellowship Village, you could find yourself tending veggies in our year-round greenhouse or tinkering in our woodshop. You might enjoy listening to an engaging guest lecture in our lifelong learning center or creating a masterpiece in the art studio.
If you love the performing arts, you won’t need to travel far to catch first-rate shows. Our on-campus cultural arts center, the state-of-the-art Sieminski Theater, hosts a terrific range of drama, music and dance. You might also grace the stage yourself in a residents’ production. Did you know research suggests participating in the arts may improve the health of older adults?
5. Choose a Stylish Home with a Design to Suit You
You may love your current home, but will it suit your changing needs in the future? That staircase might become an obstacle to reaching your bedroom, while climbing a ladder to prune your hedge may prove tricky. Will you be able to navigate your kitchen and bathroom if you need assistance?
Our modern, maintenance-free homes are designed with accessibility in mind. We offer multiple floor plans, whether you’re looking for a cozy one-bedroom apartment or a two-bedroom villa so the grandkids can stay over.
