Senior Wellness and Activities at American Orchards


Wellness is a term that is used widely these days in senior living and with good reason. Research shows that physical, intellectual, social, vocational, emotional and spiritual activity – wellness – is the key to residents maintaining their health, mental skills, and their quality of life. At American Orchards, our signature wellness program, Soul Purpose, embraces each of these critical areas. We strive to create an inspiring, motivating, and supportive environment with plenty of senior activities where our residents can truly thrive in both body and mind.
