VILLAGE LIVING

Large variety of activities and adventures – within and beyond community – ensure never-ending robust options to make the most of any day

Retirement living doesn’t have to be … retiring.

The Village at Brookwood in Burlington, N.C. prides itself on planning a continuous stream of wide-ranging activities for its residents, both on the grounds of the community and well beyond.

“Our residents remain vital, engaged and energized,” says Betsy Huneycutt, director of Sales. “They want to make the most out of their retirement years, and our team is here to serve their goals.”

Concerts, field trips, theater outings, sports events – there’s constantly something for everyone, Huneycutt points out.

“On many days, you see The Village activity bus heading down the driveway, and your guess is as good as mine on where they’re headed. It could be anywhere!”

This month alone, the “life enrichment calendar” is bursting with options. Shopping trips, a visit to a vineyard, lunch excursion, a baseball game, a journey to a historic site in Kernersville, a dinner theatre outing and an exploration of the Greensboro Science Center are just some of the scheduled resident options scattered throughout June.

Huneycutt says that The Village’s location in Burlington – “right in the middle of the state” – creates tremendous opportunities for field trips, north, south, east and west. “It’s a simple hop to the Virginia state line, or a quick ride to either the Triad, featuring attractions in Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, or the Triangle, with Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Research Triangle Park. There are truly endless options.”

But you don’t have to leave The Village to be engaged and entertained.

“And if you’re not in the mood to leave the neighborhood, there’s plenty to choose from right within our community,” Huneycutt says. “We offer worship services, games, movies, arts and crafts, wine and cheese gatherings and on and on. Our fitness center constantly hosts group exercise classes, both in our workout areas as well as our indoor pool.”
