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.

This is the best place for me. The staff take the best care of me. This is exactly where I should be. - U.S. News and World Report Survey 2024
It is affordable, and it was the only place I needed to look. It had everything that I needed. I was very happy with what Fairwinds had to offer. The move was so very smooth and easy. No difficulty at all. Very impressive and still is. - U.S. News and World Report Survey 2024
Everything isn't just routine. Much routine is necessary, but if you have a suggestion for an activity you can count on it being implemented or tried. I've never had a bad encounter with management in my 2+ years residency. Maintenance is exceptional and Paul and Dennis are both top notch members of management. - U.S. News and World Report Survey 2024
