Our Residents Understand the Importance of Staying Active!

Staying active—mentally, socially, and physically—is critical to quality of life. That’s why we are committed to providing extensive recreational, social, and educational activities programs… more than other independent senior communities.

We offer regularly scheduled trips to shows and events at The Palace Theatre, Proctor’s, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and Tanglewood, to name a few. Our on-site activities and clubs cover the full spectrum of resident interests— from Bridge Club, Garden Club, Book Club, Theatre Club, and Travel Club to our wine and cheese events and musical and theater performances. Many of our residents stay involved in pursuits and passions they enjoyed long before moving to Ávila—from sports to volunteerism. Here’s just a sampling of all we do here at Ávila!

Fitness and Wellness Programs

Our programs are taught by nationally recognized and award-winning fitness professionals and are designed to strengthen and enhance mind, body and spirit of active seniors of all fitness levels. Ávila residents can choose from more than 25 fitness classes each week, including chair Yoga and chair Pilates, strength training, balance and flex training, water aerobics, and aquatic biking and more. In addition, we regularly offer nutrition and wellness programming focused on everything from fall prevention and brain health to healthy eating and cooking.
