Outdoor Discussion

No matter how you like to spend your day, the Edwards Personal Care Community has a fun mix of activities and on-site facilities for residents to enjoy. Whether it's an individual pursuit or a group event run by our Resident Council, there's something here for everyone.

Many of our seniors take pleasure in either a spirited walk or a leisurely stroll though the grounds of our 10-acre park-like campus. The numerous walking paths serve as a great outlet for exercise, a serene spot for meditating or just enjoying the scenery. Residents can "watch the world go by" while relaxing on our conveniently located benches. You can enjoy our half acre pond or a game of shuffleboard. And when it's time to return indoors, you can take a seat in the glass-enclosed sunroom and have a wonderful vantage point to see the pond and natural beauty of the grounds.
