How Our Lifestyle Helps Seniors Thrive

Oct 22, 2020 | Amenities, Senior Living

Nobody wants to just “exist.” Ask any person what they want out of life, no matter how old or young they are, and the answer you hear will have a similar refrain: enjoyment, adventure and fulfillment. In other words, every individual wants to thrive. That’s exactly what seniors who choose The Village at Gainesville will find, says Wayne Vinson, Sales Leader at The Village at Gainesville, a senior living rental community that offers independent living, assisted living and memory support.

“The Village at Gainesville is all about living well, and to that end, we’ve created a vibrant retirement lifestyle with today’s senior in mind,” he says. “Our superb living experience, thoughtful combination of services and maintenance-free living and numerous conveniences and amenities are part of our philosophy of better living by design. We want our residents to thrive today, tomorrow and beyond, no matter how much support they may need to live the life they want.”

“Here, residents will find a true sense of belonging, well-being for today and security to the future. You’ll spend your days doing what you love most, making friends, enjoying laughter and happiness and finding enriching activities and adventures everywhere you look. Whatever you want your retirement lifestyle to look like, we’ll help you live your best life and live it well.”

Thriving means … a focus on vitality.

Living well means taking care of all levels of wellness – mind, body and spirit. Our specially designed Vitality Program has been created to encompass every aspect of health for each individual. Every new resident receives a health and wellness assessment prior to moving into The Village, which is then used to create a customized Vitality Plan.

The Vitality Program’s focus is on physical health, which is essential for aging well and being able to enjoy the lifestyle you want. Your individualized plan will give you a variety of recommendations that can help you optimize your well-being while at our community. In terms of physicality, the opportunities we have to help you live well are practically endless. Our heated outdoor pool gives you the chance to swim laps or enjoy a fitness class with others. Our fitness center is equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment you can use on your own or with the assistance of a personal trainer. We also have tennis and pickleball courts as well as a variety of classes including yoga or tai chi. The choice is, as always, yours.

Your Vitality plan also offers access to additional services, such as assistance with navigating health care options, an on-site primary care office and outpatient physical therapy office and a variety of on-site physician and medical services.

Thriving means … a carefree, maintenance-free existence.

Wouldn’t it be nice to never have to do home chores again? How much time would you gain if you no longer had to rake leaves, shovel snow, deal with surprise repairs, clean or cook? Welcome to the maintenance-free and carefree existence at The Village at Gainesville. Our rental retirement community gives you everything you need to thrive for one monthly payment. What, exactly, does that payment cover? Here are just some of the many services and amenities our residents enjoy.

  • All utilities (except personal telephone)
  • Standard cable TV (premium channels available)
  • Housekeeping service (twice monthly)
  • A flexible dining plan for use in any of our three restaurant venues
  • Scheduled transportation to shopping, performances and special interest destinations
  • Community bus with drawbridge ramp for safe and easy access
  • Medical and dental transportation by private car
  • Dedicated within-campus transportation
  • Gated community with a 24-hour security guard
  • Complete maintenance of common areas, buildings and grounds
  • Participation in a full calendar of planned activities
  • Access to common areas, including library, community and game rooms, chapel, swimming pools, convenience store, hair salon and more
  • Access to our Wellness Center (a walk-in clinic staffed by a licensed nurse)
  • Resident activated emergency alert system

Providing these services means our residents no longer have to spend their time doing boring, time consuming chores. Instead, they can enjoy the activities they love, spend time with new and old friends, travel, learn a new hobby … or anything else they dream of doing.

Thriving means … peace of mind for the future.

As we get older, we (and our family members) want to know that caring assistance, high quality health care and a thriving lifestyle will be available no matter how health or care needs change. Most seniors (and their families) don’t want to be in a situation where a loved one has to suddenly move to a new community or facility due to an illness, chronic disease or an accident.

Enter yet another facet of “living well” at The Village at Gainesville. As a resident, you will have peace of mind knowing that compassionate and caring assistance will be available if you ever need it – and you don’t have to leave our community to receive it. We offer assisted living and memory care services in our community so you never have to leave the place you call home. You can remain in a comfortable location surrounded by the people you know and love.

What about if you need primary care services, rehabilitation or skilled nursing? That’s also available without you having to leave our grounds. We offer primary care services onsite at our North Florida Regional Medical Center’s Senior Healthcare Center at The Village. Unlike other communities in the area, we’re able to provide primary and specialized services for our residents thanks to our relationships with third-party providers, including geriatric primary care services, specialty physician services, rehabilitation and therapy groups, home health care providers and hospice providers.

“Thriving, ultimately, means giving our senior residents the resources, assistance and opportunities they need and want to live the best lifestyle possible,” says Wayne. “That’s different for every person, and at The Village, we love customizing our care and services to provide our residents with the exact lifestyle they deserve. We believe that your senior years should be some of your best ever, and we promise to diligently provide everything you need in order to make that happen.”
