Senior Wellness is our Passion
The Civitas Speaker Series
Senior wellness is a journey, not a destination. The Passion Program is a comprehensive continuum of care that includes My Activities, My Food, My Passion Pathway, and My Wellness. The programs help residents live healthier by providing activity programming, medication management, culinary experiences, and more.

The Civitas Speaker Series offers an expansive range of senior health and wellness topics, from diet and nutrition to exercise and mental health.
