You’ll find a full calendar of lifestyle activities and events that means you can be as busy (or not busy!) as you wish. And why not grow healthier as you grow wiser? The Wellness Program at Thorne Crest has been 'specially designed by one of the country's leading senior fitness/wellness professionals and encompasses six dimensions of wellness that include not only the physical aspects of wellness but the spiritual and intellectual as well.
