At Fairview Lifestyle Village, we wholeheartedly embrace a set of values that we believe are instrumental in enhancing the well-being of our cherished residents. Each month, we shine a spotlight on one of these values, and for September, we are diving into the incredible world of vitality and how it can truly transform our aging journey.
Vitality Is Not Just For The Young!
It is said that “youth is wasted on the young?” Many of us do not appreciate our vitality until it begins to wane. This article explains how living in a vibrant community can help you thrive – staying active, sharp, and socially engaged well into your senior years! But first, let’s clarify what we mean by ‘vitality’.
Vitality stems from the Latin word ‘vita,’ meaning life. But it’s not just about feeling physically energized; it encompasses your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Physically, it’s about feeling vibrant, capable, and healthy. Mentally, it brings a sense of purpose and clarity.
Here at Fairview Lifestyle Village, we firmly believe that vitality is the secret ingredient to a life that’s fulfilling and rewarding. In fact, it’s one of the five key strengths that have the highest correlation with happiness and well-being. The other four strengths are curiosity, optimism, gratitude, and love – truly a recipe for happiness!
The Key Is To Live In A Vibrant Community!
As we journey through the different stages of life, we understand that maintaining an active lifestyle can be challenging. That’s why we offer a variety of interest groups tailored to individual preferences and abilities. Our ultimate goal is to create a vibrant community where all our residents can thrive.

“There’s so much you can do in our village. A lot of people arrange groups for things like bowling, croquet, cards, rummikub, art, and sewing. Plus, there’s a keep-fit class. I go to the gym every morning.”
– Beth – 95 year old resident
“The resident’s committee oversees the activities. I think we are unique in that way. Other villages employ staff who organise everything, which is more restrictive. But here, we make our own days, so there’s a sense of purpose and pride in the fact that it’s ours.

Have You Lost Your Mojo?
As we age, it’s easy to fall into a rut and not participate in activities as much. This can affect your mental and emotional health. Some seniors limit their pursuits to the basics because getting out can be challenging. Hobbies and activities can also be impacted by budgetary concerns.
We know it can be tempting to stick to the basics, and coming into a community like ours can help you regain your zest for life. Our community has everything you need to reignite your passion for life and make each day an unforgettable one!
Here you can participate in a variety of activities and enjoy all the facilities at no extra cost. With no financial constraints, you can dive into a life full of excitement without worrying about budget constraints.
Positive Energy – ‘It Just Feels Right’
But it’s not just about what we offer or how easy it is to join in the fun. It’s about the amazing power of togetherness that we embrace. Here, you’ll discover a positive atmosphere that empowers you to live your best life.
“This is a happy village and it’s a homely village. It’s not clinical, it’s a community.”
“I call it my Fairview Family”
“This village is quite unique. We explored other villages but didn’t get the vibe. They weren’t friendly atmospheres. It felt as if you were living in a corridor.”
Staying Active, Fit and Healthy
Being active has so many benefits! It keeps your blood pressure in check, helps you maintain a healthy weight, and reduces the risk of serious conditions like diabetes, cancer, and dementia. Let’s not forget that being active also brings vitality into your life. And living in an environment that makes it easy and enjoyable to exercise is a game-changer.
In Fairview Lifestyle Village, staying active isn’t a chore, it’s a way of life. You’ll never be short of fitness options with amenities like a pool, spa, gym, and landscaped gardens. What’s even better? There are dozens of resident-led activities to choose from, and a community of friends to cheer you on.
In conclusion, vitality is a crucial component in living a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. By embracing vitality and living with purpose, older adults can enhance their physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing, leading to longevity and overall happiness.
Our vibrant community takes pride in offering activities that keep residents vital and engaged, promoting a life that’s rich and fulfilling.
