HEALTH AND WELLNESS

 

The key to healthy aging and quality of life is wellness in all forms – physical, intellectual, social, vocational, emotional and spiritual. That’s why every activity, program and event at Grace Ridge enhances at least one aspect of your overall well-being, so you can truly enjoy an active, fulfilled retirement lifestyle.

Our residents participate in year-round wellness activities that lead to better senior health – through on-site activity programs and our affiliation with Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge. Plus, you’ll enjoy complimentary memberships to Phifer Wellness Center and Mimosa Hills Golf & Country Club.

Yearlong Wellness

Keeping residents healthy and independent remains our top priority at Grace Ridge. To meet that goal, we host annual health screenings, provide nutritional counseling and offer routine clinical services – from flu shots to blood pressure checks – for convenience and added peace of mind.

Fitness for All Ages

Fitness at both Grace Ridge and nearby Phifer Wellness Center can keep anybody strong and flexible. In-house wellness and fitness programs include yoga and Ageless Grace – exercises based on everyday movements and designed for all ages and abilities. Phifer Wellness Center, the largest facility in Burke County, features a 25-yard heated pool, racquetball courts, massage therapy, sauna and whirlpool to relax after an invigorating workout. At Mimosa Golf and Country Club, you’ll find an immaculate golf course, tennis courts and fine dining options.

Nature's Playground

There’s also ample opportunities to step outdoors for fresh air and invigorating activities: trails leading to stunning bluffs and waterfalls, clear lakes for canoeing, greenways, and mountain overlooks.

Just steps from our door, you’ll find Catawba Meadows Park, complete with a municipal greenway that meanders along the picturesque Catawba River. In addition to special seasonal events, the park houses a 17-hole disc golf course, sand volleyball courts, softball and baseball fields and picnic shelters.
