Active Retirement – Always on the go!

Around here we always say “you can be as busy as you want to be.” Retirement can mean relaxation. It can mean adventure. Or, it can mean the perfect combination of both!

Fitness - Active RetirementAnywhere you go on our 140 acre campus you will find active retirees enjoying life to the fullest! On any given day, Pan Hall plays host to those who want to relax by the fireplace with a cup of coffee, read the newspaper, and of course converse with fellow residents. Other locations on campus, such as the Convalescent Center and the Patio Sale Barn, offer endless volunteer opportunities that our residents love to take advantage of. Our Aquatic and Fitness Center is hopping with those apt to stay physically fit and our Auditorium provides an endless supply of stimulating entertainment.

This is just a sample of what’s happening each day on our campus. Not to mention the myriad of off-campus opportunities offered to residents by our Lifestyle Enrichment Department.

In the past week alone, 275 Panorama residents participated in 9 different special activities. That’s 25% of our Independent Living population!

Residents visited the Washington Center for Performing Arts on Thursday for “Capitol Steps” while others saw “Oliver” at the Capital Playhouse on the same day.

Friday was the St. Patty’s Day dinner in the Chambers House Restaurant. 100 residents enjoyed an Irish feast and music by “Cricket on the Hearth,” a Celtic musical group.

Saturday was jam packed with the NY Metropolitan Opera, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Harmony Sweepstakes a cappella competition hosted by Masterworks, and a Zentangle Feathers Workshop on campus.

Residents finished off the busy weekend with another trip to the Washington Center for Performing Arts to see the Verdi’s “La Traviata” opera and a trip to Marymoor Park for the Cirque du Soleil presentation “Amaluna.”

We are fortunate for the plethora of opportunities offered through Panorama for residents to take their pick!
