Diversions galore, from games to book clubs and trips.

A vital component of the Whitney Place experience is our full calendar of enriching social, educational and recreational programs, ranging from music and art workshops, to group excursions for a harbor cruise, the symphony, or other cultural pursuits. Our programs are intended to stimulate, reward and enhance lives in a relaxed atmosphere. You are always free to participate in as many – or as few – activities as you please.

The activities and programs filling your days are designed to bring greater happiness and fulfillment to life. Our programs are designed to maximize all six vital aspects of a person’s well-being:

Physical • Occupational• Social • Intellectual • Emotional • Spiritual

Participation in meaningful pursuits has been shown to buffer depression, as does exercise, which also improves mobility and overall health. Engaging activities offer social stimulation, help vent frustration, and lessen feelings of loss and loneliness.

In addition to our full calendar of activities we have our signature Whitney Workshops. These programs are designed to further education, promote socialization and provide opportunities for you to relax, stir your imagination, increase your self-awareness, rouse your senses and make new friends.
