You’re in good company.
A lifestyle without limits: At Kirkwood Orange, life sparkles with new friends, engaging activities and peace of mind for the future.
At Kirkwood Orange, we’re nostalgic for the good old days and it shows. Our Country Kitchen feels like a small town coffee shop where friends and neighbors can pull up a chair and catch up. Our cozy living room brims with hospitality. There’s a piano in the corner just looking for a song to play, and a romantic fireplace ready to pull people close together on chilly nights. We even have a 1950s-style ice cream parlor, where you can whip up an ice cream float whenever the mood strikes. Our expansive patio captures a backyard barbecue feeling on sunny days. In short, Kirkwood Orange remembers. We remember what community is supposed to feel like, and it shows.
There’s so much more to explore at Kirkwood Orange:
A SYMPHONY OF EXPERIENCE
Our proprietary SYMPHONY program is the heartbeat of Kirkwood Orange, delivering a rhythmic flow of positive experiences. Our holistic approach to community engagement supports all of life: physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual. When taken together, it not only contributes to individual happiness and wellness, but also creates meaningful bonds and caring connections between our staff, family members and the larger community.
We believe that staying true to wellness goals is easier when you’re part of an encouraging community that embraces healthy living. To that purpose, Kirkwood Orange offers IN•Tune Fitness, a proprietary wellness program developed by Cadence Living. Exercise types based on resident interest, such as Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, Dance, Balance, Tai Chi, Cardio Fit, and Strength Training. We’re also big believers in using the brain’s natural neuroplasticity to enhance the quality of life. By choosing to stay physically active, mentally engaged, eating right, and developing meaningful connections and experiences, we can improve our body, mind and mood.
ENCORE Culinary Services at Kirkwood Orange is an engagement of the senses. We offer all-day dining services in a casual, welcoming atmosphere. Because we know good health starts with healthy food, Cadence recipes are crafted with fresh ingredients. Menus are influenced by resident preferences and their personal feedback to the ENCORE dining team. Mealtimes are fun, social and entertaining—great times with interesting friends in a lively venue. In fact, our residents invite their friends and family members to join them for a dinner out—right where they live! But most importantly, ENCORE can accommodate your special dietary needs, including food allergies and sensitivities. Just let us know, and we’ll work together to create suitable alternatives for you.
SESSIONS Life Enrichment
Studies show that physical activity, mental stimulation and social connection can significantly slow functional decline as we age. This is why SESSIONS Life Enrichment Program supports the totality of life with an engaging activities calendar designed to elevate the happiness and wellbeing of our residents. SESSIONS activities include plenty of special celebrations, exercise groups, movie nights in our own theatre, community book clubs, sing-alongs, lectures and excursions to cultural events.
ARIA ARTS PROGRAM
Creativity and self-expression are timeless experiences. Whether you are an expert or a beginner, Cadence’s Aria Arts Program offers a wide variety of classes and artistic encounters across different mediums and popular culture.
Assistance within a community like ours can open up new possibilities, which may not be possible for those living in isolation without a supportive, caring community of peers by their side. By taking care of many household chores such as housekeeping, laundry, meals and transportation, residents are free to pursue other activities and interests, including wellness, intellectual and artistic pursuits, and new friendships. Our hospitality-centered approach to community life means we work with residents to coordinate outside medical appointments, while conveniently providing essential services, such as haircuts, manicures, pedicures and massage appointments right where they live.
As Plato said, “Music gives wings to the mind.” Residents, friends, family and the local community are invited to join the Cadence Choir. From beginners to professionals, the Cadence Choir is a joy for all who participate and for all who listen.
HOLISTIC COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
At Kirkwood Orange, we believe each of our communities should become a meaningful hub of connection to the outside world. Our commitment to lifelong learning means opening up our intellectual and entertainment programming to include neighborhood book clubs, lecture series, arts and crafts workshops, meditation classes, music-based activities and live performances. We engage with community life through social outings to local restaurants, shows, museums, cultural attractions, volunteer organizations and travel clubs. Residents tell us what they’re interested in learning, doing and experiencing, and we make it happen. Through creative expression, play and stimulating activities, we weave together a fabric of experiences to enliven both the community around us, and the lives of residents we serve.
