Senior Health And Wellness

Holistic Wellness is Priceless

Stretch with the sunrise on your outdoor terrace. The feel of the warm water surrounding you as you finish your morning laps. A fresh, chef-prepared meal enjoyed on the patio with friends. Engaging in all of these experiences is part and parcel to investing in your holistic health. Studies show that holistic wellness is key to healthy aging, which is why every aspect of life at Querencia at Barton Creek has been designed to ensure that residents here live fully and well.

The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order.

- Henry Ward Beecher, Speaker and Social Reformer
Physical Wellness

Each wellness journey is unique. That’s why our wellness programs are tailored to your specific needs and interests and managed by experts committed to helping you live your best life. Staying physically active can reduce stress and improve cognitive function, leading to a better quality of life. So take a plunge in the infinity pool, start your morning with a brisk walk on the two-mile nature trail, enjoy a weekly yoga class, or consult with a nutritionist to create a meal plan to fuel your adventures. 

Mental Wellness

Community living enhances mental health in numerous ways. One of these ways is by reducing everyday stressors that affect mental health. It’s also easier to connect with others here, which is key to reducing feelings of loneliness, depression, and isolation. Enjoying a new dish with a friend at the Limestone Grill, going on a group trip to explore the 2nd Street District, or attending a performance in the auditorium are just a few ways you can meet and mingle with others here.  

Spiritual Wellness

We all aspire to be part of something greater than ourselves, and we achieve this in many ways, such as connecting with others in one’s faith community in the chapel, giving back as part of a volunteer effort, or simply spending time in quiet contemplation while walking the dog each morning. Whatever brings you feelings of peace and connection, you can find an opportunity here to engage in it.

I had no idea how inspirational it would be to be around people who were even older than I am … funny and fun, agile, and very full of life.
