Senior Health and Wellness Program

Take charge of your well-being.

A study by the MacArthur Foundation showed that 70% of physical aging, and approximately 50% of mental aging, is determined by the lifestyle choices people make every day. The Choices program at Lake Forest Place is designed to put the power for making those decisions into your hands. By nurturing seven dimensions of wellness, you give yourself every opportunity to improve your quality of life.
