Programs and Activities
Live Now, Live Well™
Life at River Ridge at Avon is always eventful. Through our signature Live Now, Live Well program we take time to learn what residents already like to do and what they'd like to try next. Then, we design a robust calendar of more than 150 engaging opportunities to learn, socialize, exercise, create and explore every month—from book discussions, gardening clubs, exercise classes and games to group outings, volunteer opportunities and art workshops. We also encourage our residents to stay active and involved by leading classes and events related to their expertise and lifelong passions. For a more detailed listing of what's going on, view a sample calendar.
