Decidedly Different

Residents at Dunwoody Village create custom lifestyles

Visitors to Dunwoody Village frequently remark that it just “feels different” from other communities, and it doesn’t take long to understand why. The genuine friendliness, openness and inclusivity that are an intrinsic part of the Dunwoody culture are readily apparent from the moment people walk through the front door.

But Dunwoody Village doesn’t simply offer a friendly, inviting atmosphere. It offers a wide variety of activities and events that enable residents to create the lifestyle that most appeals to them, all within a continuing care retirement community that provides a sense of security for whatever the future holds.

Fitness programs. Residents enjoy classes like Tai Chi, Pilates and water aerobics, but also have plenty of opportunities to frame their own fitness routine. Leading a hike around Dunwoody’s 83 acres, swimming laps in the indoor pool, or arranging a game of pickleball are just some of the many forms of physical activity available to Dunwoody residents.

Lifelong learning. Through book discussion groups or a lecture series, residents can explore new interests. Residents often serve as both teacher and student: a trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art is led by a resident who has served as a docent for many years; another resident teaches crochet, not only to fellow residents, but also in Philadelphia’s Main Line communities. The floral committee welcomes new members anxious to learn new design skills.

Volunteer opportunities. With thirty committees within the Dunwoody Village Residents’ Association, there are plenty of ways for residents to use their gifts and talents throughout Dunwoody and beyond. Many residents continue to volunteer with community organizations. Others publish monthly newsletters, oversee the woodshop, or welcome new residents as part of the hospitality team.

Socialization. Some residents arrive already knowing friends or having connections in the Village, which fosters a sense of familiarity. Others find that Dunwoody offers a refreshing sense of change – with new friends who have an array of diverse backgrounds and experiences that make the daily social exchange richly rewarding. By chatting with a neighbor over iced tea on the patio or joining a book club, residents can easily find their niche.

Peace of mind.  Dunwoody Village’s continuum of care and longstanding reputation for quality healthcare offers assurance that, no matter what the future holds, a resident’s needs will be met. Dunwoody’s care center includes short-term rehab, personal care, memory care, and skilled nursing.

A strong sense of community. A plethora of programs and activities. A five-star rated care center. All these things are what makes Dunwoody Village a Decidedly Different® choice.
