Senior Living Communities Worth Celebrating in Central Florida

The demand for quality senior living communities is growing exponentially. Beyond the expectations of security and care, seniors today search for communities customized for their independent lifestyle. They want better choices for dining, special events, and luxurious amenities. They also want well-appointed apartments and welcoming indoor and outdoor living spaces that complement their personal lifestyle without forgoing their freedom – and rightfully so.

HarborChase senior living communities in Wildwood, The Villages, and Gainesville are luxury Assisted Living and Memory Care communities designed with exceptional hospitality and service at the core of everything they offer. Managed by Harbor Retirement Associates, generous amenities include full-time, onsite salons, HarborFit centers designed to accommodate all levels of mobility and professional exercise classes, beautiful outdoor living spaces, and dedicated Life Enrichment spaces like Virtual Bowling Alleys, Club Rooms, and Art Studios that guarantee events are always happening. 

From elegant décor and open floor plans at HarborChase of Villages Crossing to the traditional Florida designs of HarborChase of Wildwood and HarborChase of Gainesville, these communities stay true to Central Florida’s historic area while giving residents and families the environment they need to transition to senior living. Meticulous attention to details support Harbor Retirement Associates’ 20-year commitment to the creation and refinement of successful senior living communities in which we ourselves envision living.

With five uniquely planned restaurants, ranging from casual fare to fine dining, residents and guests can choose to dine any time of day. Dining options within spaces that provide communal and private opportunities are imperative to the HarborChase promise of celebrating senior living every day.

Signatures: The perfect combination of contemporary dining and ambiance, Signatures is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With warm and masterfully lighted interiors, it’s easy to see why the restaurant is popular for both special events and daily dining. Signatures Too in the Memory Care neighborhood is equally vibrant. 

The Grill Room: Open to the public and residents every Friday and Saturday evening for one special seating, this fine dining restaurant is elegantly appointed for gourmet dinners and wine pairings. By reservation only, dinner includes a five-course, prix fixe menu featuring Land, Sea, and Air options. 

Zest: A sophisticated private dining room ideal for intimate dinners, cooking classes, wine tastings, and special celebrations. Reservations required. Open to residents and guests.

The Chefs Studio: Located in Signatures and adjacent to Zest, the wood-fired hearth oven and open preparation area allows residents and guests to experience interactive cooking classes and opportunities to watch the Executive Chef in action. Culinary events happen throughout the year and are open to the public, residents, and families.

Fusion Lounge: With its open floor plan and beautiful bar, happy hours happen daily beginning at 3PM and include handcrafted cocktails, chef-selected appetizers, live music, and the occasional game of Smartini. 

Counter-Offer: A casual cafe located in the heart of each HarborChase community and adjacent to the main entrance, residents, professionals and guests can order grab-and-go artisan sandwiches, salads, and pastries from 9AM to 3PM.

With all the freedom and amenities of a luxury resort, retirees who choose a senior living community like HarborChase of Gainesville, Wildwood and Villages Crossing, also get the reassurance that – should they need a higher level of care down the road – they need not look beyond their own front door.
