Lifestyle and Wellness
New residents receive warm welcomes from that first visit, and soon, friendly acquaintances start to develop into deep friendships. Covenant Village provides our residents with choices and conveniences that can surpass living at home, including a wide range of services, from weekly housekeeping, personal fitness coaching to wellness assessments.
Here at Covenant Village, neighbors and staff become like extended family. An extraordinary sense of community inspires our team to serve our residents with the resources and support necessary to live a longer, better life. We find that there is nothing more rewarding or invaluable to overall health and wellness than living in an environment created around supportive relationships.
The best living is full of purpose, with the freedom to pursue exciting opportunities and an active lifestyle. Covenant Village is a lively place where friends gather for a weekly Bridge game in the card room or set a standing date for a group exercise class. Laughter echoes from the bar and lounge as neighbors catch up on each other’s days and swap stories or exchange recipes.
Our community calendar reflects a wide range of interests, with programs and activities contributing to a family-friendly, engaging atmosphere. Children and grandchildren frequent our private dining room, which residents can reserve for special occasions. However, residents can enjoy precious “downtime” as well. Covenant Village respects the need for social engagement as well as rest and private reflection.
Covenant Village is an ecumenical, faith-based community in every sense. We have grown to serve maturing adults in our area thanks to the determination and collaboration of eleven area faith communities. We promise to provide a highly regarded and stable community where you can live as God intended. Here, you are welcomed, valued, and cared for as a beloved child of God.
Many of our residents continue to serve active roles in our local community’s places of worship. We also have an onsite Chaplin who helps guide our residents and their families through challenges and struggles and initiates joyous celebrations and expressions of gratitude for our many blessings. Covenant Village offers spiritual fellowship opportunities, including weekly Bible Study groups, devotionals, and chapel services.
Covenant Village’s wellness-centered approach to your health is based on eight dimensions – physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social, financial, environmental, and purpose. We support all aspects of your well-being, including a focus on exercise and physical movement, as well as nutrition.
Rich amenities and services help promote physical fitness. Our well-equipped fitness center, which includes a 65′ lap/exercise pool, a whirlpool, exercise room, and massage room, makes it easy to set and achieve your fitness goals. Our wellness program, Covenant Life, leverages thoughtful technology resources, including the Wellzesta software program, to personalize wellness coaching to help residents live their healthiest lives and enable friends and families to connect.
Our park-like campus encourages being outside and moving with walking trails and reinvigorated invigorating spaces.
Covenant Village prioritizes a healthy mind and a healthy body. A purpose-filled life energizes you as you grow and learn. Choose what interests you the most and invigorates your spirit. Our monthly calendar includes offsite outings, access to local and metropolitan cultural events, and specially designed programs to help you thrive intellectually and creatively.
Our residents maintain vital community connections by supporting and volunteering local organizations, nonprofits, and causes. These organizations welcome the experience and energy that our residents contribute,
Visit the theater to take in a nationally touring Broadway musical. Cheer on the local Honey Hunters at Gastonia’s exciting FUSE ballpark or minor league baseball Charlotte Knights at their beautiful uptown stadium, or gather with friends in the assembly room to hear a local musician or speaker. Sign up for gardening classes to develop your green thumb, learn origami, or work with pastels in an art class. Plus, enjoy day trips to pick-your-own produce farms or try new cuisines during mid-day dining excursions with “the lunch bunch.” There is something for everyone.
Whether you choose to host a private dinner for guests, experience daily meals with your neighbors, or simply stay in your residence to enjoy your favorite comfort food, Covenant Village has a dining option to satisfy every taste.
Our dining room is the perfect setting for residents who view mealtime as a social occasion. The Covenant Village culinary team goes above and beyond to develop nutritious and delicious menu items.
- Plentiful plant-based menu options are offered as well as traditional comfort foods.
- Fruitful breakfast parfaits, Waffle Wednesdays, and omelet stations ensure that every day begins with a fortifying start.
- Special treats such as Bananas Foster and ice cream sundaes encourage everyone to eat dessert first. And you won’t want to miss the rolled oysters served at special receptions.
Reserve a private dining room for entertaining friends and family on special occasions (our dining services staff will even assist with menu planning and catering). Many evenings a week, you can find a lively group of residents at our bar and lounge having a spirited discussion or playing a few rounds of trivia games over cocktails and snacks.
Healthy eating is enjoyable, and our dining services team works with you to find delicious options for various dietary needs.
*Apartment residents are provided three meals a day, and cottage residents are offered one meal a day in the shared Dining Room
