Through thoughtful design, our communities integrate everything seniors need, from cognitive programming to our signature 24/7 health and wellness support. The Baptist Health collaboration takes that to the next level at our Coral Gables community, as the Live Healthy center will integrate clinical support into seniors’ daily lives.”
