Residents are able to live on their own independently, while benefiting from a community of close-knit seniors with similar interests and lifestyles. DPA designs spaces to encourage seniors to stay healthy and active such as Aquatic and Fitness Centers, Wellness Facilities, and outdoor exercise areas and paths.
