It Really Does Take The Village

Jan 22, 2018 | Senior Living

Many people live in a community their entire lives without getting to know their neighbors. At The Village at Gainesville, you not only know your neighbors, but they become great friends. By calling our community home, residents gain a team of dedicated associates to help navigate their transition to the community.

From introducing residents to each other, to finding activities to help the new resident get involved, to becoming a consistent, friendly face, our associates value making The Village a social place to build a community.

Adding Purpose

Residents’ having a sense of purpose is a crucial component to overall well-being. Daily activities at The Village give our residents a lot to look forward to while adding consistency to their week. Our daily mid-morning coffee group is one of many examples of our residents building a community of friendship and support.

Specifically designed to help you take control of your health and wellness, our Vitality Program offers opportunities for group fitness classes and competitive sports like bocce ball and golf. These activities allow our residents to work towards a goal and improve their skills.

At The Village, we understand our residents are transitioning from the purpose often associated with their careers and families. We are here to provide engaging opportunities as they explore and identify new passions.

Reducing Loneliness

An estimated 26% of adults ages 65 and older live alone. Community living provides opportunities for our residents to socialize throughout the day. The friendly atmosphere at The Village reinforces that our residents are part of a social network. Your neighbors become your friends and there is always someone around to offer a friendly “hello,” ask about your day, or invite you to a happy hour or bocce ball game.

For many seniors, the ideal solution to reducing isolation and finding support and purpose is a senior living community.
