We Learn Here

We Learn Here

Learning and growing in new ways is what exceptional senior living is all about, and it's rare to find a retirement community that can match the scope of RVM's offerings. Studies show that the brain stays young and flexible when we continue to learn, whether it is taking a class or playing a new game. And when interesting pursuits and enthusiastic people surround you, it's easy to get involved and stay involved. That is the key to the success of our lifestyle at RVM. Residents can attend cultural events and educational seminars right here on campus. They can pursue the arts, learn new hobbies, and experience activities of almost every kind. They also volunteer to share their skills and areas of expertise, "paying it forward" to other residents and the community at large.

Off-campus offerings are just as numerous and diverse. The Rogue Valley has a myriad of cultural events and historical sites to explore, and there are two colleges and various other civic and community venues that offer classes nearby. Best of all, Oregon passed a law in 2009 that allows seniors age 65+ to audit higher learning courses without paying tuition!

Here are some of the local ways that we learn here:

  • Southern Oregon University: SOU offers a range of courses in Ashland and at the RCC/SOU Higher Learning Center in downtown Medford, just a short drive from RVM. You can audit courses, take an online class, attend community seminars, and get involved in OLLI (see below).
  • Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at SOU (OLLI). With 80+ classes in Ashland and Medford each term, this member-run program allows you to explore intellectual interests with your peers ($100 annual fee).
  • Rogue Community College: Residents have the opportunity to audit available courses or attend Continuing Education programs in Medford.
  • Siskiyou Center: Immerse yourself in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) at educational getaways that include five nights of lodging at SOU's Cox Hall, tickets to three OSF plays, various meals, and lectures by theatre professionals and Shakespearean scholars.
  • Medford Parks and Recreation: The city's quarterly Community Connection guide offers opportunities to enroll in many local Adult Enrichment Classes.

Resident Bob Abler, Founder
Manor Mentors and Financial Aid Program

One of the most common questions RVM residents ask is "what can I do to help?" It is this question and his passion to assist local teens that led Bob Abler to start the Manor Mentors and Financial Aid Program.

Bob says, "When my wife and I first came to the Manor six years ago, I was amazed at the amount of talent and professionalism I saw in my fellow residents. Then it occurred to me that we're all going to leave this Earth without passing this along to the youths who may need it. So I went to South Medford High School and asked if they had a mentoring program, and they did. It's called ASPIRE: Access to Student Assistance Programs in Reach of Everyone, an Oregon-wide program that functions in our local high schools. As I became involved with the program, I was saddened to learn that there were hundreds of teen boys with lower grade point averages who never thought of applying for a mentor."

Knowing that the RVM Foundation's Fairy Godmother Program was already in full swing supporting young women's educational pursuits, Bob was inspired to create the Manor Mentors and Financial Aid Program for young men. With the support of ASPIRE and Alesia Davenport, director of the RVM Foundation, his vision has become a reality. Click here to read the full article.
