Seniors Are Enjoyably Busy at Keystone Villa

Posted: April, 2013 | By: Lindsay Dierolf

Retirement communities are no longer the “rest home”-type places they used to be. In recent years, they have become hubs of activity for seniors. One such community in Berks County is Keystone Villa. With facilities in Douglassville, built in 2005, and Fleetwood, built in 2010, they offer a great variety of popular amenities. Both sites offer Independent Living and Personal Care. The Douglassville location also offers Memory Care services. There are no buy-in fees for the residents. The month to month leases include such amenities as meals, housekeeping, laundry facilities, activities, and transportation to appointments & social events. In addition to those basics, they also offer onsite rehabilitation centers, an onsite health care center, and a lab. A hair salon/barber is provided and residents can exercise in the fitness center. Residents can read or search the web in the library, which is equipped with a computer lab. Both locations provide attractive outdoor recreation areas.

Independent living offers a choice of studio, and one or two bedroom apartments with a full kitchen, and an optional patio area. Independent Living residents are permitted to have small pets.
An experienced & well trained staff and the latest in technology ensure that residents’ needs are met accurately and efficiently.

Amy Purcell, stated “There is no shortage of things to do, our residents enjoy an active lifestyle. “The residents are offered scheduled activities, daily and special events such as holiday events and music or health seminars. The Fleetwood location is currently offering a Berks Jazz Fest series on specific dates through May.

A special program at the Douglassville location is “Body Zone,” a series of health and wellness classes including yoga, tai chi, pain management, and stress reduction designed to promote physical and cognitive health.
