What Is Life Like at a Senior Living Community?

Think of moving to a senior living community as the start of a wonderful new chapter in retirement, full of meaningful connections and opportunities to explore your passions. Imagine you or your loved one waking up in a spacious senior apartment and meeting your neighbors for coffee before heading off to a yoga class. Or maybe you’ll take your dog for a morning walk on an outdoor trail before spending the afternoon reading the latest bestseller.

No matter how you spend your time at a Franciscan Ministries community, the philosophy of living joyfully is built into every activity. At every one of our communities, we believe joyful living is the foundation of life. It’s all about giving residents more time to do what they love by providing personalized support.

Discover What It’s Like at a Franciscan Ministries Community

All Franciscan Ministries communities give each resident the opportunity to make friends, follow their passions, and enjoy a more active lifestyle. Our senior living communities have a variety of events and activities on the calendar, so you’ll always find something to enjoy. Here’s a look at what a typical day as a senior living resident looks like:


You wake up in your senior apartment before heading off to the dining room to meet friends and neighbors for a delicious breakfast prepared by the community chef. Since one of our team members handles the chores and home maintenance, you’ll have more time to pursue your favorite hobbies.


It’s lunchtime! This means you get to enjoy another meal that has been handcrafted by one of the community chefs. After enjoying delicious and nutritious food, you’ll be able to explore the local community with one of our scheduled trips. Our communities focus on helping residents boost their wellness with a variety of activities. For example, you can stimulate your brain with a puzzle or take in an afternoon service at our chapel.


Head back to the dining room for dinner, and remember to treat yourself to dessert. We hope you saved room for popcorn since you’ll be spending part of the night enjoying a movie. Whether it’s a current blockbuster or a classic, you’ll feel a sense of community as you share the experience with friends and neighbors. After an active day, it’s time for bed. As you get comfortable, you can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
