The Leisure Care Difference

Today's older adults aren't wrapping up their life's journey, they're seeking a new one. And Leisure Care is here to inspire them to embrace joy and purpose in their lives. For nearly 50 years, we've been reimagining and reinventing senior living, making sure older adults have the most fulfilling, rewarding, and productive opportunities possible.

From our hospitality-based care to our signature programming, we take a beyond-the-body approach to well-being that goes beyond the basics because we know you're anything but. We're paying attention, providing new and innovative ways to help seniors rediscover, reinvigorate and occasionally even reinvent themselves.
