Wellness Center at Cypress Glen
Caring for seniors means more than health services — it also means providing opportunities to live a healthier lifestyle every day. At Cypress Glen, we follow Eight Dimensions of Wellness to support residents’ holistic wellness. While our team works tirelessly to support residents with the best retirement community wellness resources, we aim to have them blend seamlessly into every day because we think improving your overall wellness should not feel like a chore.
Group and individual fitness programs are designed with seniors in mind. Aquatic exercise classes in our heated saltwater pool are great for people who need low-impact workouts or those who simply love the water. Residents can pop into classes as the mood strikes, or they can follow a strategic plan. Working with our Wellness Coordinator, residents can begin a program to reach their goals in small, deliberate steps. A Personal Trainer is available by appointment to help.
Another important aspect of physical health is proper nutrition. Our dining team works with a Nutrition Care Coordinator and accommodates residents’ dietary needs. With locally sourced, fresh ingredients, our talented chefs create delicious dishes that residents look forward to. Each of our dining venues adds more variety to keep each meal exciting.
A richer social life is one of the classic retirement community wellness benefits. With over 200 activities on the calendar each month and beautiful dining rooms open every night, residents find as many opportunities to socialize as they prefer. They can always enjoy private nights in or a quiet corner of the library, but when they want to share a meal or spend time with friends and neighbors, it is as simple as a walk down the hall.
Retirement is a fantastic time to learn and grow. Our Life Enrichment Director ensures there is always something on the calendar — whether it be a cultural performance, a musical concert, or a seminar from an expert speaker — to interest residents and expand their world view. And in between events, they can explore our extensive library with books, periodicals, and audiobooks.
Walking paths wind through towering trees and expansive lawns on our 95-acre campus. Residents can connect to nature in the beautiful North Carolina climate or take the time to meditate among the stunning scenery.

The Director of Social Work facilitates support groups for residents to aid in grief counseling and spouse and caregiver challenges, among other topics. And, we provide animal-assisted therapy for health services residents who could benefit from the unconditional affection of an animal.
The Cypress Glen Chaplain leads individual and group discussions and prayer support. At every level of living, we offer regular worship services for residents who choose to participate. The Spiritual Life Resident Committee and the Resident Council Executive Committee make wellness calls to residents in all levels of care.
It is important to feel a sense of purpose. At Cypress Glen, residents find opportunities to improve the world around them and serve others through resident clubs and committees, as well as volunteer opportunities.
Having expert health services right on campus provides peace of mind for residents and their loved ones. Residents also receive regular screenings to monitor and treat their everyday health before conditions become more serious.
Coordination by the Best
Our Wellness Coordinator works across many departments to create a holistic experience. And to help residents make their own informed choices, the Wellness Coordinator presents an optional monthly seminar on a different retirement community wellness topic followed by a question and answer session.
