What Makes You Unique?
Each of our residents has unique life experiences, preferences and routines. Our personalized services make our residents feel at home by attending to those personal preferences. We dwell on the details--whether a resident has a favorite lotion, needs help with pet care, or loves shopping trips to the mall. Our staff makes sure each resident receives the attention and service they deserve.Learn More About Our Personalized Service
While many of our residents enjoy whipping up a meal in their own apartment, others like to eat and chat with friends. With our restaurant-style dining, the choice is the resident's to make. Meal times are flexible and dining selections are abundant.
We know it's the little things that give life its flavor. Whether it’s a mid-day cup of coffee or your favorite evening drink, we’re here to help. It’s kind of like having your favorite restaurant right here in your new home.
Our highly-trained chefs work with fresh local ingredients to make healthy, nourishing and tasty meals and snacks. In addition to seasonal and anytime meals, we provide dining options that cater to those with conditions like heart disease or diabetes.
With rotating menus and our friendly staff, our restaurants are always serving up something great. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner, healthy choices are plentiful and we make a point to offer something that appeals to every palate.
Whether a resident is craving that special dish from their favorite restaurant or wants to order a pizza for visiting grand kids, we're here to help. Additionally, should you or your family member have dietary restrictions, we'll be glad to accommodate them.

The Amazing Benefits of Music for Seniors
Music is deeply tied to our memories and emotions. In an instant, a song can bring us back to a specific time in our lives. Or, it can bring us a rush of joy and a lift in mood. Music is powerful and therapeutic, which is why music is such an important part of all our Blue Harbor programming! In this edition of the True Blue blog, learn all about the benefits of music for seniors!
How Seniors Can Benefit from Volunteering
As we reach retirement age, we're often looking for different ways to stay active and involved in our communities. We have more time on our hands and are searching for ways to add new meaning and joy into our lives. Volunteering and giving back is a fantastic way to do just that! Learn more on this edition of the Blue Harbor blog.
Movers and Shakers: Benefits of Exercise for Seniors
Here at Blue Harbor Senior Living, we design our activities program to nurture the mind, body, and soul. Accessible, daily movement is an important part of our programming. From chair yoga to tai chi to walking groups to dance classes, we offer regularly scheduled exercise classes.
Do Social Connections Make Us Healthier?
When you think about health and aging, what do you think of? Many of us think about staying physically active, or about eating wholesome foods. You may also think about different ways to stay sharp, such as trying out new hobbies or playing brain games. However, amidst all the different ways to age well, there's an unsung hero: friendships and social connections.
Some seniors have been diagnosed with memory disorders like Alzheimer's, but severe symptoms might not yet be present. Our unique Bridges Program helps residents acclimate to the community and focus on the activities they can do. As symptoms progress, we'll tailor the activities so their transition is as smooth and comfortable as possible.
This innovative program promotes engagement with a small group of friends in shared activities—like reminiscing, cooking, music appreciation, celebrations, pet therapy and more. Bridges provides a gentle transition into our memory care program: Illuminations.

Hear from Our Residents
Life at 90
The people at the Courtyards are very nice from top to bottom. I have a lot of fun with the variety of activities. I turned 90 years old here and I had an amazing birthday party right here in the community.
The right fit
I love the whole community. It's beautifully decorated and my apartment is just right for me. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly.
I love the garden, trees and landscaping of the whole community. It's very attractive. I love that I can mingle and meet people my age.
Finding a new happiness
After the death of my wife Lila, I asked my heavenly father for help in existing without her. He amazingly gave me my dog Cricket and from our home led us to the Courtyards at River Park. I live comfortably, and the staff have made the move and daily life as pleasant as I could have ever imagined.
This is a wonderful place, where the staff can't do enough to be sure you are happy!
Choosing Memory Care for Mom
I didn't want my mom to feel like she was going into a nursing home. The staff here is incredibly devoted, and I felt like I wasn't giving my mom a lesser life, I was giving her a better one. She feels cared for and that's what's important.
