Some Christmas Gifts Require You to Look Down!

The present is here
It is always here–now.
I close my eyes
and be the one with the present.
The present—a gift.
I breathe in the air around me
I breathe out.
My breath joins other breaths.
I ponder.
My eyes are wide open.
I see this glorious creation.
Here! NOW!
THE PRESENT.
THE GIFT.

-The Gift by La Posada resident Norma Strait

Resident Reflections…A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY

A SELF-CONTAINED COMMUNITY
is where I am fortunate to live
the last segment of my life—
a community of seven hundred residents
and five hundred employees, like a little town
on this one hundred fifty acres of property,
with all the food and shelter services provided,
three libraries, an observatory, a little store,
along with online shopping for personal needs,
and if I want to go outside my little town
to shop or see doctors or the larger library
I can ride the bus or the van provided
for those purposes.
I can walk or ride on the tram around
the grounds of my little town
for they are some of the most compelling features,
containing pecan trees and green grass
and multi-colored flowers,
walking trails for visiting meditation and poetry
and butterfly gardens, and even a coffee shop
for meeting friends from the larger communities,
ramadas and benches for sitting to rest,
and changing views from mountains to a river,
usually a dry river bed where one could study earth science
or wait for the excitement of water running in rainy weather.
And then the levels of care available if and when I need them—
I am grateful.

The Connect: Green Valley app is a convenient source of information and solutions for people seeking life-enriching community services. This is one stop shopping, helping people connect with area health, wellness, and support service providers. This app is FREE and updated frequently by Green Valley community service providers.

Connect: Green Valley is an app (interactive application), designed to streamline your search for adult services in Green Valley. Initially funded by a generous grant from the Freeport – McMoRan Community Investment Foundation, Posada Life set out to create a portable and convenient “one stop” for locating and exploring adult services in Green Valley and our surrounding area.  Posada Life designed the application to be user-friendly and operate across multiple devices.

This application was designed based on three pillars: Learn, Locate and Listen.

Learning: Our education section, powered by our Inspired Living Institute, provides the user with targeted information on a variety of topics, all designed to educate the user and provide a solid foundation of knowledge.

Locate: Using the mapping feature, the user can locate services in the desired area, contact those providers and begin to build a plan of action.

Listen: Users may also send providers correspondence and feedback based on services provided.

Let La Posada help you take the mystery out of retirement!

For some, retirement is filled with uncertainty.  For others, retirement is the time to live well, reinvent oneself, and create new memories through new friendships, travels, and “dream jobs” (volunteering)!

Retirement is the time to choose what you want to do and how you wish to live everyday. Where you choose to live in retirement needs to meet your intellectual, social, and physical desires. Where you choose to retire needs to create wonderful memories.

Since 1987, La Posada at Park Centre offers 62+ retirees a self-directed lifestyle.  Our campus is the social hub of Green Valley while offering plentiful wellness activities with fine dining options:  gourmet, vegan and vegetarian meal choices.
