Promoting physical and social engagement continues with our new two-phase plan to provide our residents, as well as their families and friends more opportunities to enjoy the outdoors together.
Boredom and loneliness are two of the principal emotional enemies of seniors. We believe no resident at St. John’s should ever be lonely or bored.
Phase 1: Work is underway for our outdoor exercise and putting green/bocce ball area.
Being outside and socializing together has many positive benefits for everyone. This first phase of the project provides even more opportunities for both. With putting contests, community events and more planned for 2018, we envision a healthy spirit of community and camaraderie at St. John’s. Your donation today can help make this a reality.
Phase 2: The design and construction of a large, open-air pavilion in the green lawn area by our PCU building.
Estimated between 600 and 750 square feet, it will provide ample room for upwards of 30 people to enjoy a variety of activities and programs together. New walkways will meander to the pavilion where our residents can relax, read, socialize, or entertain with their families. We anticipate this to become a new hub of outdoor social activity on campus.
Campus comfort: Continuous campus improvements are always underway.
We are always seeking ways to enhance the enjoyment and independence of daily life for our residents. Projects such as energy efficient comfort systems and water-wise landscaping improvements are being considered.
