Fitness and Wellness
For most seniors, the hardest part of aging is maintaining a healthy lifestyle as it provides significant challenges. With New Year's right around the corner, kick starting a healthy lifestyle is on everyone's mind but it is especially important for aging adults so they know how to take good care of their bodies. At Glen Arden, Orange County's premiere Continuing Care Retirement Community, we offer unparalleled access to facilities and experts that are needed to start and maintain a healthy lifestyle including a wellness regiment and fitness program. Our mission is to continually introduce new and healthy styles of living while helping residents maintain healthy physical abilities. At our fitness center, you will find plenty of variety and stimulating activities to keep you healthy and active.
Art and Music
Retirement is the perfect time to try something new and to unveil you're creative side.
At Glen Arden, Orange County's premiere Continuing Care Retirement Community, we offer numerous opportunities to immerse yourself in art and music.
Want to try your hand at painting? The Sugar Loaf studio offers northern exposure meaning anytime of day resident artists can work at their easels to paint or at the long table to draw. Residents also create Japanese Floral Art Arrangements (Ikenobo Ikebana) here, as a master in this art form lives at Glen Arden.
There is also an Arts & Crafts room comprised of two rooms with large windows, craft tables, a sewing center and even a kitchen to spread out all sorts of projects. Residents meet every Saturday to make centerpieces for the Dining Room, lap blankets for patients in our Health Care Center, work on their knitting or crochet projects, make jewelry and of course, work on scrapbooks - which make great gifts for the grandchildren!
The Glen Arden residents are music lovers!
Music and singing can be heard coming from the Rhinebeck Room where performers entertain. Some entertainers have become well-known and loved. They are asked to come back every year! From show-tunes to an artist playing the accordion, there's a musical performance to suit every taste.
We are Best Friend Friendly
At Glen Arden, we understand that pets hold special places in our hearts and play important roles in your lives. They give us companionship and unconditional love, and we couldn’t think of living without them. That’s why your furry, feathered – and even scaly – family members are as welcome here as you are.
For the comfort and security of all residents, we do request that canines be under twenty-five (25) pounds, and that felines be cared for as “indoor” cats. Reptiles, birds and fish are also permitted in your residence. You are free to walk your four-legged friends on the grounds, and you may even find that many of your neighbors enjoy interacting with them, too.
So, whether your beloved pet drinks from a bowl or lives in one, has claws or paws, you can bring them with you to Glen Arden.
