When people think of senior living communities, they don’t automatically think of fine dining. Likewise, they may not believe that dining options at senior living communities are destination venues. At HarborChase Senior Living, we are committed to busting these stereotypes about senior living dining experiences and changing the game in the industry.
Senior living communities can often get a bad reputation, but HarborChase is redefining retirement living. We offer senior living communities throughout the United States, and one of our newest communities, HarborChase of Princeton, is breaking all stereotypes.
Happy New Year! It’s that time again to take stock of your life and find ways to live happier and healthier. The new year offers a chance for a fresh start, a new beginning, an opportunity to better yourself. Most commonly, people expect to do this with popular resolutions—lose weight, eat healthier, save money, travel, spend time with family.
Having a hobby is more than just finding an activity to fill your free time. Hobbies keep you mentally, physically, and socially active, can be great stress relievers, and allow you to explore new interests and passions.
HarborChase Senior Living is proud to highlight one of our HarborChase of Prince William Commons residents, Anna!

Even though as many as 20% of older adults experience anxiety or another type of mental health concern, it is largely stigmatized and avoided. Because of this stigmatization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that “depressive disorders are an under-recognized condition and often are untreated or under-treated among older adults.”
Last year, the holidays looked a little different than they have in the past. Families were having virtual Thanksgiving meals, outdoor gift exchanges, and intimate reunions through glass windows. Despite some concerns about traveling this year, many people are vaccinated and ready to hit the road (and skies) to spend the holidays with their loved ones.
