University Place is an extraordinary senior living community. It is a place made truly distinctive by its origins in the hearts, minds and experiences of the people of Franciscan Communities, who have dedicated much of their lives to serving seniors. It is a place whose affiliation with neighboring Purdue University offers a universe of opportunities to a new kind of senior who considers learning and exploring one of life's ongoing necessities.
Imagine beginning your day with a stroll on one of the extensive walking trails outside of University Place and ending your day sitting outside, enjoying a warm summer night and a bright moon.
Now imagine further all of that free time you have between morning and evening and think of the many ways you can spend your time learning new skills, further developing hobbies, improving your health, making new friends and discovering your spiritual side.
They say the Fountain of Youth was found in Florida, but we think it's in West Lafayette today. At University Place, opportunities for fun and relaxation are seemingly unlimited and many are provided through our life-enrichment department.
At University Place, we partner with our residents to create a program that represents their desires, goals and dreams. It's not so much University Place's life-enrichment program, but rather, it's the residents of University Place's life-enrichment program.
As part of your independent lifestyle at University Place you can choose from a variety of clubs, activities and events. All of our programs are designed to enrich the quality of your life.
Our residents enjoy physical activities such as fitness fun, line dancing and other exercises. We offer intellectual and educational opportunities, including computer training, bridge tournaments, guest speakers, art appreciation and book clubs. The community provides many recreational activities too. From surfing the Internet and walking on the outdoor pathways, to watching classic films during Friday Favorite Video, our residents find plenty of different ways to entertain themselves. With an onsite non-denominational meditation room, residents can enhance their spirituality daily and engage in study groups and other reflective opportunities sponsored by our pastoral care department. Our residents also enjoy taking breaks and relaxing with happy hours, resident barbecues, live music and other get-togethers.
Beyond the activities organized by life-enrichment, residents have access to wonderful sites outside of the community thanks to being a short car or bus ride away from everything Lafayette and West Lafayette have to offer.
Understanding that our residents have varying desires, as well as different skill and need levels, is the key reason why we schedule separate activities for independent living and assisted living, while at the same kindly welcoming all residents to participate in whatever activities they wish.
