With the Komen Race for the Cure Event approaching, the team behind the luxury lifestyle of Devonshire at PGA National is setting out to remind seniors that while aging is inevitable, the loss of energy and vitality is not. With the risk of breast and other cancers increasing as we age, Devonshire is determined to help as many seniors as possible to improve their quality of life - a move that could help them extend it as well.
Having already solidified its reputation as the poshest in a sea of posh, high end communities for seniors in South Florida - no small feat - this luxury Life Care Retirement Community in Palm Beach Gardens is encouraging seniors to pursue the Devonshire lifestyle not just for its luxurious offerings, but for the many ways that Devonshire can actually help them live happier and healthier lives. Executive Director Mary Jo Pompeo: " At Devonshire, we understand that it isn’t the length of your life alone that determines your happiness; it’s also the quality. For seniors, the most important factors in determining quality of life are being surrounded by friends, enjoying the best possible health, and feeling secure and well cared for in their environment. Devonshire gives seniors all of those things, as well as a luxurious, maintenance free, worry free lifestyle."
Pompeo paints a picture of the social lifestyle at Devonshire that will no doubt be extremely attractive to seniors living alone - group travel (including local excursions like the theater and shopping, as well as long distance travel), cocktail parties, live entertainment, their own private movie theater and full membership privileges at PGA National Resort & Spa. As for wellness, Devonshire has its own state of the art fitness center with a staff of personal trainers and a schedule full of classes, like senior yoga, and aqua aerobics, giving seniors ample resources to help them protect their health and vitality. They also boast not just one, but five unique gourmet restaurants, all offering fresh, healthy options and catering to residents' unique dietary needs. As for security and its impact on happiness and health as we age, Pompeo has an answer for that, too. A registered nurse is on call 24 hours a day, and a daily check in system is in place, along with emergency call buttons in all bathrooms and bedrooms, and an on-site wellness center. And of course, there is the Devonshire promise of Lifecare - Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation services included, ready to be called in to action, if and when they are needed.
Says Pompeo, "Yes, Devonshire is a luxury retirement community. But Devonshire also offers services that can help seniors live a happier, healthier lives. The message that is being sent out is that at Devonshire, we don't just want people to live a long life- we want it to be a live a life worth living."
