When they’re not breaking world records or practicing conversational French, the residents of Atria Darien kick back, relax and savor a simplified lifestyle. Every day, they take advantage of their freedom from chores and home maintenance to connect with fascinating neighbors and pursue new experiences.
Home to artists, writers, teachers, and engineers, this newly renovated senior living community is a short walk from downtown Darien — and a long way from ordinary.
In fact, the residents aren’t just active, they’re fiercely competitive. In 2015, a group of eight began participating in an indoor rowing class. None had ever rowed before, but they soon developed a passion for the sport, setting higher and higher goals for themselves, and supporting and encouraging each other along the way. Last October, they all achieved personal bests. Two residents, aged 87 and 101, even set records — one U.S. and one world.
These residents expect more from their community — and from themselves. And Atria Darien delivers, through its Engage Life events program and its LEaF (Learning, Entertainment and Fun) Academy, which gives residents the added opportunity to propose and implement activities on their own. As a result, the seniors who call Atria Darien home choose from a robust calendar of classes, group outings and entertainment every month.
Residents also enjoy spacious apartments, fresh, chef-prepared meals, housekeeping and concierge services, scheduled transportation, and a 24-hour staff, among others. Schedule a visit today at AtriaDarien.com.
