There are many reasons why people choose to live at Coburg Village – bright spacious apartments and cottages; a monthly calendar filled with countless social, wellness, educational, and entertainment programs; our array of services; and the delicious dining, just to name a few. Once they move in, most will agree that one of the greatest reasons to live at Coburg Village is our sense of community. Our active Residents’ Association is one of the reasons for that feeling of community.

Shenendehowa High School junior, Casey Gao, reached out to Coburg Village offering to share her artistic talents. It was decided that our Fitness Center would be the perfect spot for a mural. Casey's mural, which features bright hibiscus flowers and hummingbirds, is her original design. She started the project by sketching out various concepts at home. She wanted to create something bold and colorful, including local flowers and birds. In nature, the hummingbirds would all be just a little smaller than the flower. Casey added some visual interest painting the birds in various proportions.

Coburg Village resident, Doris Carlson, shares her experience about making the move and living at Coburg Village.

Resident, Frank K., shares his thoughts about life at Coburg Village after his first three months of living at the independent living, retirement community.

Coburg Village's Recreational Writers committee is open to all residents who enjoy writing. The group meets the second Wednesday of the month in the Coburg Village card room at 2 pm.

Stories are selected to appear in the Coburg Scribe a biannual publication of the Coburg Recreational Writers.

Good friends are good for your health. They can help you celebrate in good times and offer support in bad times. Friends prevent isolation and loneliness. Studies show adults with strong social connections have a reduced risk of many significant health problems, including depression, high blood pressure and obesity. In addition, adults who have meaningful relationships and social support are likely to live longer than their peers with fewer connections.

Meet Earl St. Onge, at age 102, this inspirational WWII Veteran and musician is still delighting listeners with his music.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, swimming is an excellent way to get regular aerobic physical activity. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity can reduce the risk of chronic illnesses.

At Coburg Village our residents can enjoy the many wellness benefits associated with water exercise in our sparkling, heated saltwater pool and whirlpool spa. Our pool is four feet deep across, so residents can swim or walk laps across its entire length. Our residents rave about our energizing water aerobics class which meets in our pool twice a week. It is sure to get you moving and is a terrific way to meet new friends.
