Why Choose a Close-Knit Retirement Living Community

Choosing a retirement living community takes a lot of thought, planning, and patience. Beyond a community that offers the right level of care, amenities and activities that align with your interests, and accommodations that cater to your lifestyle, you want to find a community that makes you feel at home.

Close-knit retirement communities help residents foster meaningful friendships, strike a balance between urban and natural settings, and expand their efforts to serve and connect. As a life plan community, Uplands Village is a tight-knit community in Pleasant Hill, Tennessee, and we believe this benefits our residents and enhances their lives!

What Does a Tight-Knit Community Look Like?

We know there is no definitive way to describe “tight-knit;” it’s something you just have to experience. At Uplands Village, tight-knit is our residents forming long-lasting friendships through shared activities. It’s residents making contributions of talent and time to the Cumberland County community at large and other members of our Uplands family. And it’s our board of directors who work closely with Upland Village’s executive staff to deliver our mission of being a caring, inclusive senior living community.

In any other retirement living community, you may find friendships and happy hours, but in a tight-knit community like Uplands Village, you will find individuals who are bound together by the common goal of finding ways to improve our community, our neighborhoods, and beyond.

Discover Meaningful Connections

Socialization is an integral part of leading a fulfilling, healthy life. From promoting physical activity and boosting self-esteem to delaying cognitive decline and improving longevity, several benefits of maintaining an active social life contribute to healthy aging.

In a tight-knit retirement living community, staying connected and engaged with friends and peers is easy and convenient. The limitations that affect our social life as we age, such as changes to our mobility and lack of access to reliable transportation, become less prominent since our friends and peers are right on campus with us, and there are caring team members ready to assist around the clock.

Meeting up with a friend for a meal or joining a group exercise class is all part of the everyday lifestyle in a tight-knit senior living community like Uplands Village.
