The beauty of 33 acres on the shores of Scott Lake lends itself to numerous outdoor activities. Lourdes has a pon- toon boat on which residents can take rides or bring a pole for fishing. There also is a lakeside dock for fishing, and a nearby gazebo provides an excellent vantage point overlooking the lake. Wooded areas feature paths for walking and biking where the trees are pretty in spring, summer and fall – even in winter with snow covering the branches. And there is always a chance a walker might see a deer.

Of course, Lourdes also features sev- eral indoor activities: painting, jewelry making, crafting, cooking and baking, vocal and chime choirs, music and art therapy, computer lessons, entertain- ment, games such as Wii Bowling, fam- ily events, fun times with elementary and high school students and themed meals.

Each home has its own kitchen and culinary staff dedicated to providing a variety of great tasting foods. Chicken enchiladas, kabobs and pasties are among resident favorites, and fresh soup is prepared daily.

At the center of life at Lourdes, is a foundation built on the Word of God. Sister Teresita Lipar presides over the pastoral staff, all of whom are trained


to meet the spiritual needs of residents, family and visitors. Pastoral ministries include mass and other chapel services, sacraments, prayer for healing and com- fort, Bible study groups and spiritual pil- grimages.

Lourdes Senior Community is home to more than 250 residents. Sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, it has been serving seniors since 1948 with

C Service

four core values, Dignity, Service, Compassion and Spirituality, regardless of race, color, creed of religion. The Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center has been named one of the nation’s best by U.S. News and World Report and overall community selected Best of the Best for senior living eight years in a row by readers of the Oakland Press.
