Our multifaceted Wellness Program is designed around the principle of successful aging as described by the MacArthur Foundation research. They found that as much as 70% of physical aging is related to lifestyle choices that include eating a healthy diet, getting enough physical exercise, and keeping one’s mind active and engaged.
At Trinity Terrace, wellness means supporting residents in all of these aspects:
- Eating right is easy because our culinary team prepares meals that delight the palate and provide good nutrition.
- Our Fitness Center and Indoor Pool, along with the many exercise classes offered weekly, promote good physical health.
- Residents stay informed through on-campus seminars related to general health, brain fitness, stress management, and more.
- Visiting musicians, performers, and artists provide personal enrichment.
Social engagement takes place throughout campus, all day long, each and every day, as residents interact with others while dining, exercising, and participating in hobby groups or recreational activities.
