Signature Programs

Innovative Activities To Uplift Spirits
& Promote Well-Being
Keeping the body and mind engaged is just as important to staying healthy as your annual physical. Simply because you no longer live at home shouldn’t mean you have to stop enjoying the exciting activities you’re passionate about – or learning new ones.
Our signature programs at Willowbend are progressive, always-evolving, and based on the interests of today’s thriving seniors. They are never about filling time, but tapping into residents’ passions and creativity through robust activities, such as cooking classes, fishing trips, and live concerts on-site by local musicians. Coffee socials and outdoor family barbeques, rooted in local traditions, are also a regular part of our repertoire. Our programs are both engaging and diverse, encouraging a higher quality of life and a stronger willingness to get involved and socialize within the Willowbend community.
