Staff report

Residents of St. Andrews Estates, a retirement community in Boca Raton, now have a new place to hang out.

A nearly $2 million Life Enrichment Center was recently completed and is now open to residents.

The wellness center provides therapy, a nurse practitioner and fitness resources – all in one place. This additional space is an investment into the community’s wellness culture benefitting both residents and employees.

“The new center positions St. Andrews Estates to attract the next generation of seniors looking for ways to maintain their health and live well into their later years,” St. Andrews Estates Executive Director Susan George said.

More than 200 residents and city leaders were on hand to see the debut. Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer, City Councilman Andy Thomson and members of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce celebrated with residents and staff who toured the expansion and learned more about the services now offered.

The center will also offer free health screenings to help predict those more at risk for falls, frailty and decline years before any symptoms appear.

“There will be more opportunities in the coming weeks as therapists will be on hand for free wellness checks,” said Joya Marotta, Campus Director of St. Andrews Estates, “It’s part of our new T.H.R.I.V.E. (Therapy Helping Residents with Independence and Vitality Effectively) program, an innovative approach to maintain strength, balance and prevent falls.”
