At the Commons, you will keep on doing the things you like to do.

We plan our activities and programs around our residents’ interests and passions. If there is something you enjoy, we probably offer it; if we do not, just ask. The best thing about our programming is that, while there is plenty to do, you can always do as much—or as little—as you want. It is up to you.

So many activities and programs, you will not have time to explore them all.

Our programming includes so many engaging opportunities to learn, socialize, exercise, create and explore. Our activities calendar is resident-driven and comprises lectures, exercise classes, games, group outings, community committees, religious services, art workshops and more.
