There’s a lot to love about living Lakeside.

This beautiful Life Plan Community (CCRC) truly has something for everyone—from spacious, Independent Living cottages and apartments, to Assisted Living apartment homes, and a skilled nursing center offering short-term and long-term care.

Designed with you in mind.

The 24 acres of lakeside property located on the east campus of Springfield College offers quintessential New England charm with beautiful views everywhere you turn, paved and unpaved walking trails, and flexible meal plans that include a variety of fine dining venues, as well as Twain’s Café for lighter fare.

Enjoy the well-stocked library, art studio, billiards room, bocce court, and outdoor dining when weather permits.

Stay healthy and in shape in the fitness center where you can workout with a certified personal trainer and classes that meet varying needs and abilities including: tai chi, yoga, line dancing, aerobics, core, stretching, and now, Gentle Joints, modeled after the Arthritis Foundation’s evidence-based, group exercise program.

Wellness is a way of life.

Residents like the convenience of on-site health services that include a primary care physician, nurse practitioner, and two registered nurses offering short-term and long-term care. Also onsite—specialty services that include rehabilitation, psychology, podiatry, physiatry, foot nurse, and phlebotomy. Plus, medication deliveries are also available.

Whether you have your own vehicle or not, it’s nice to know you have access rides on those days you just don’t feel like driving!

Suited to your taste.

And if all of this is making you hungry, grab breakfast or a light lunch with friends at Twain’s Café, just off the lobby in the main building. For a more formal dining experience with a different menu, head over to the all new Dining Room where you can enjoy chef-prepared meals served to your table.
