So Much to Do – It’s Hard To Choose

Our innovative approach to wellbeing was developed in collaboration with the Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness. We believe residents thrive when they make their own choices – so we provide lots of programs and events designed to engage them on a physical, spiritual and emotional level—and families are welcome to join in. It’s all about living life on your terms.
