Older adults age 62 years and above can enjoy a healthy, stress-free lifestyle in a community featuring quality housing that is truly affordable. Franciscan Vistas Ewa is a model, close-knit independent living community for seniors that makes health and well-being top priorities. Six two-story buildings, each with 25 living units, are steps away from the community center and other amenities available to all residents. Buildings encircle a garden courtyard where neighbors can meet in a safe, secure environment. Amenities available to residents include cultural, social and recreational activities, a fitness center, gathering lawn, learning and activity center with Internet, swimming pool, community center with kitchen, and a hair salon.
Volunteers are needed to participate in learning/social activities with the residents (i.e., sewing, playing board games, and water aerobics). Pet visitation volunteers are also welcome. Volunteers are oriented and trained upon acceptance into the program.
