Life-Long Learning at the Village at Southlake Retirement Community
Author Julia H. Gulliver once said, “Let us never be betrayed into saying we have finished our education because that would mean we had stopped growing.” These are profound words that have great meaning. The Village at Southlake, an independent retirement community located at 123 Gibson Road in Lexington, created its Life-Long Learning Series with this thought in mind. Regardless of age, the opportunity to learn new things and to broaden one’s horizons is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
In retirement, engaging the mind and challenging the intellect supports a more vital presence and – simply put – it’s just plain fun. The Village at Southlake believes that now is the time. Their Life-Long Learning Series brings unique speakers from around the area, offering direct access to interesting takes on a variety of topics ranging from the serious to laugh-out-loud stories of a humorist.
By bringing continuing education into the retirement setting, The Village at Southlake’s goal is to redefine the “old school” identity of retirement living. Not satisfied to just think outside the box, they decided to throw the box away.
The Village at Southlake knows that there is more to retirement living than bingo and scenic rides. Too much of what is available to seniors today focuses on a perceived notion of what they can’t do. Although unintentional, the reality shows this to be true. The challenge to those who chose to live at The Village at Southlake is to be engaged in their lives, to be adventurous, and to rethink what retirement living can be.
Every day brings new ways to enhance how people age, ways to minimize the impacts of aging on the body, and how to decrease the risks of cognitive impairment by exercising the brain. When something so simple can contribute so much to a healthier retirement, the choice is simple.
Retirement living can be different, and The Village at Southlake can show you how. For more information about the variety of classes in the Life-Long Learning Series or The Village at Southlake Retirement Community, call (803) 200-2865 or visit www.villageatsouthlake.com today.
