Health and Wellness at Highland Springs

Quality Care for Seniors

Staying physically, mentally, and socially active is the key to living a full, happy life. At Highland Springs, we help you keep your mind, body, and spirit in peak condition with these healthy resources:

Stay Sharp

  • Keep your mind active with an educational class. Highland Springs has partnered with UTD, Collin, and SMU to bring a host of intriguing talks to campus. You can also travel to Collin College for a Senior Active in Learning (SAIL) class. Ask for details when you visit our community.
  • Visit the games room. Play Texas Hold ‘Em, bridge, or a stimulating board game with your neighbors. There are also jigsaw puzzles set up all over campus. Stop and see if you can find a piece that fits!
  • Give your hand-eye coordination a workout. Join the Wii bowling team or challenge your friends to a game of billiards. There’s also a baby grand piano in the living room if you happen to play.
  • Take advantage of Memory Health and Memory Fitness programs designed to keep you mentally sharp so you can stay independent.

Stay Active

  • The all-season pool is a great place to swim laps, take a low impact water aerobics class, or play some water volleyball.
  • The Highland Springs fitness center is outfitted with senior-friendly exercise equipment. Our personal trainer can help you with a workout routine, or enroll you in a fitness class.
  • Highland Springs has many well-lit, well-paved walking paths. You can safely power walk, jog, or pedal your way to better health.
  • Climate-controlled walkways connect most campus buildings. Even during storms and heat waves you can enjoy a daily walk around the community.
  • The on-site medical center is staffed by full-time physicians who specialize in senior care. We’ll help you create a personalized wellness plan to maintain your health and independence.
  • We offer a full range of outpatient rehabilitation services to support your physical, speech, and occupational therapy needs.

Stay Engaged

  • Broaden your social circle by meeting new people and sharing your story. Our on-site restaurants have an open seating policy, so you can share a meal with a different group of neighbors whenever you like.
  • Residents of all religions are welcome at the Highland Springs worship center. There are prayer groups and other spiritually-focused activities that will help you deepen and sustain your faith.
