At Coburg Village our residents can enjoy the many wellness benefits associated with water exercise in our sparkling, heated saltwater pool and whirlpool spa.

It is sure to get you moving and is a terrific way to meet new friends.

Falls can happen at unexpected times, no matter how well you are maintaining your health. Older adults are more likely to be injured following a fall.

You are never too old to learn something new. This may sound cliché, but if you continue to use your brain, the odds are good you will maintain your ability to think, reason and make smart decisions.

Hanukkah, or Chanukah, is a Jewish festival that lasts for eight days and commemorates a historical event that took place in Jerusalem in the second century BCE (before the common era) when King Antiochus outlawed Jewish practices, and his army defiled the Jewish holy temple in the city. Hanukkah is a “festival” rather than a religious holiday.

In December 2020, Coburg Village lost a treasured member of our community, Pastor Arthur Downing.  Pastor Downing served as part-time pastor at Coburg Village from 2000 until 2020. He was there for anyone who needed him. He was filled with compassion and grace and served as an incredible source of comfort to our residents, their families, and our staff.

On Saturday, November 13th, Coburg Village held a memorial service celebrating Pastor Downing’s life.

Veterans Day is a day set aside to commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of all United States veterans. But do you know the history behind this patriotic holiday?

The Veterans Program, which is open to residents, includes poems, a performance by Coburg’s choraliers, presentations about the Purple Heart and military service, and patriotic music; ending with the sounding of Taps.

Frances “Fradel” Cohen had always been the family historian. In 2006, she and her husband, Bill, moved to Coburg Village. Shortly after, she joined Coburg’s monthly writers’ group.

Frances enlisted the help of her daughter, Marilyn Cohen Shapiro, an author, columnist, and blogger. Marilyn is also a frequent contributor to the Jewish World.
