Community-Centered Living 

The SLC is committed to the concept of community-centered living, which regards elders as integral members of the community. We encourage everyone to continue making human connections with people of all ages, both within our residential community and beyond. In doing so, they are able to continue sharing their unique gifts with the world. 
 

Community-centered living breaks down the walls of separation that threaten to isolate our elders from their neighbors and friends. It allows those who are limited physically or mentally to stay naturally connected to society, while residing in a safe, welcoming environment. 
 

We take a proactive approach in creating many different opportunities for people to come together through shared interest, choice, or lifestyle. More than 25 nonprofit organizations utilize the SLC’s spaces for regular meetings and events. Over 2,000 visitors connect here each month. Our in-house cultural center also hosts events and performances open to the public. Community-centered living at the SLC allows elders to remain active members of their community in authentic, meaningful ways.
