Lifestyle

Lifestyle: the ability to arrange the way you live in the style that suits you. At Montgomery Place, a panoply of services and amenities make it easy to do just that.

But the most important resource is the community of neighbors and friends that define our culture. It’s a diverse tapestry of individuals from down the street and across the oceans, of many backgrounds and ethnicities, and each weaving a story well worth the telling. Their interests inform each week’s activities — reading plays or current events, gardening or musical recitals, the practice of other languages or the discipline of Tai Chi — because our residents themselves organize these events.

Adding your own thread to this tapestry makes us all that much richer.
