Like a Cruise Ship: Quality of Life at Country Meadows Village

If you’ve ever taken a cruise, then you know how fun it can be. In fact, it can be downright addicting. So, we ask the question, “Why should you have to give it up?” At Country Meadows Village, we are a cruise ship on land: with delicious, organic food offered in our open-eating hours dining rooms, and countless activities like meditation, watercolor class, gameshows, yoga, casino trips, brain-health stimulation, happy hour, shuffleboard, concerts; the list goes on. But unlike a cruise, your pets stay with you and your family comes to visit! In fact, we frequently hear from family members just how much they enjoy being able to share in all the activities and experiences with their loved one.

We stay current to the times (currently, […]

If you have a cold, you should follow these tips to help prevent spreading it to other people: 1. Stay at […]
