When you’re young, you may find yourself cramming everything you can into each minute of your day. Yet, as you age and enter retirement, you get to enjoy one of life’s greatest gifts: a slower pace. And while your calendar might be clearer than it once was, this is actually an incredible thing. Why? It gives you a chance to try all the things you always thought about doing or wanted to do – without having to balance them with going to work, raising young children, and so on.
This is why, at The Palazzo, we place such a high value on the lifestyle we offer our community members. Whether we’re making accommodations to ensure a great visit with your grandkids or partnering with local organizations to offer a revolving lineup of musical, educational, recreational or other programming, we want you to find something you enjoy, and we want you to have access to it every day.
Many of our most memorable programs and gatherings take place on our recently renovated Main Street, the central hub of the community. The area features a large-scale Cinema Room for movie screenings, virtual museum tours, lectures and similar enrichment activities. It’s also the site of numerous special events, including one held recently where older adults from across the Valley came together in a successful attempt to break a bingo-related world record.
Among the other standouts at the impressive, expansive entertainment center is a new, state-of-the-art fitness center. From flamenco dancing lessons to chair yoga, Zumba, tai chi and water aerobics classes, the center offers a wide variety of activities aimed at older adults of all abilities and skill levels.
And while The Palazzo’s programming focuses on areas of interest to residents, it also has plenty to offer visitors and family members. There’s an all-ages playroom for visiting grandkids to enjoy. A temperature-controlled wine cellar, a billiard room, a heated pool, a spa and a café cater to residents and loved ones alike.
The Palazzo’s new onsite Italian restaurant, Valentino, serves as a great spot for a family dinner or a date night, while its expansive grounds and scenic surroundings offer an ideal backdrop for an open-air stroll afterward.
While The Palazzo prides itself on providing a high quality of life for all residents, we also recognize that you may have different interests and abilities than those of your neighbors. That’s why we also offer programming aimed specifically at our independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care residents.
In December, for example, we hosted everything from Beer & Bowling and Ice Cream and Board Game Socials to Hannukah crafts, Christmas cookie-decorating and Poker. It’s a crazy, jam-packed calendar, but you have the option of doing as much – or as little – as you like.
If recent years have taught us anything, it’s that there’s true power in connectivity. That’s why, whenever possible, we plan outings, gatherings and events that encourage in-person interactions. Yet, when circumstances beyond our control call for quarantining and similar actions, we adjust the plan. We enhance our in-room programming and then increase our in-person activities as rules and county guidelines permit. We prioritize health and safety, but we recognize the pivotal role face-to-face time plays, too.
For the first time in a long time, you may have free time. Our goal is to help you find enriching, fulfilling and rewarding ways to fill it.
