Why did Orchard Cove invite Massachusetts Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren to meet with our community this Thursday, August 30?

We are a group of retired seniors who have a lively interest in the functioning of our government.  Because we want to be educated voters, we invited candidate Warren to share her views on many issues of great importance to the members of our community: maintaining a bipartisan balance of power in Washington, D.C; ending unrestricted campaign financing; tax fairness; consumer advocacy including student loans; a woman’s right to contraception as well as equal pay for equal work; and mortgage debt relief.

While many retirement communities only provide regular exercise classes and fitness equipment, the Vitalize360 program at Orchard Cove goes further by providing individualized fitness programs for its residents. This groundbreaking approach—featured in a recent issue of the New York Times—takes the guesswork out of senior health and fitness and provides many benefits.

Aerial senior living tour

When I first came to work at NewBridge on the Charles, it was a construction site, evolving every day. I just couldn’t imagine how we would meet the challenges of creating a state-of-the-art senior living option as I walked through the unfinished buildings in a hard hat.
