MEADOWOOD, a true community

Busy! That’s how to describe the typical day of Dian Nolan’s life at Meadowood. Dian moved to Meadowood four years ago and hasn’t slowed down! Always an active person, Dian starts her day early, often playing tennis, volunteering, making ceramics, beading, having fun in aerobics classes, enjoying wellness walks at local parks and usually the day ends with square dancing or bocce!

Not everyone is as busy as Dian, and that’s ok. You can do as little or as much as you want. A few months ago we discussed wellness, and how that is different for each individual. In fact, our Fitness Director, Jim Mangol, can be heard speaking to residents about fitness and wellness their way. It’s not a one-size-fits all program.

Being a resident at a community like Meadowood offers all of these opportunities, you just need to open your door to participate. Think about your life in your current home. Can you take a walk over and meet friends for bocce? – Or walk over to the auditorium and watch a live band?

The focus of our summer newsletter is community. The definition of community is: 1. A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common 2. A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals. We think both of these definitions sum up life at Meadowood. Come for a visit and we think you will agree.
