A Greenville senior living community has wrapped up a $1.5 million renovation project.
Haywood Estates, a Holiday by Atria independent living community, received upgrades in design and amenities to improve its common spaces, according to a news release.
One of the focuses of the renovation was to create an expanded fitness room to meet the needs of seniors working to maintain a more active lifestyle as they age. The game lounge, living room with library, atrium, and dining room also received extensive renovations. Other improvements included added audio-visual capabilities in all common areas, exterior enhancements and energy-efficient lighting, the release said.
“We are always delighted to welcome guests to Holiday Haywood Estates, but we are especially excited to show our surrounding community these recent improvements to our communal spaces,” Diana Sullivan, general manager of Haywood Estates, said in the news release. “Improving our dining room, fitness room, and multi-purpose rooms helps our residents thrive and continue to enjoy a vibrant lifestyle. Social engagement — whether that’s sharing a meal with friends, group fitness classes, or movie nights — is a critical component to our residents’ physical, cognitive and emotional wellbeing.”
Older adults living at senior living communities are shown to be less vulnerable to declining health outcomes, as found in a recent study from National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. The study highlights how social engagement, nutrition, access to fitness and other amenities are important factors for health outcomes of seniors, the release said.
Holiday by Atria communities offer services designed to simplify and enhance life for senior adults. Holiday by Atria is one of six distinct brands operated by Atria, including Coterie a luxury brand in a joint venture with related companies Atria Signature, Atria Senior Living, Atria Park, and Atria Retirement Canada.p
