Many residents privately do exercises in their own rooms. With the introduction of cable TV, a number of our residents have elected to participate with supervised televised exercise programs. Weather permitting, many of the residents take extensive walks throughout the spacious grounds.
Supervised, freshly prepared, nutritionally weel-balanced meals, including Armenian cuisine, are served three times a day, with two snacks served in the afternoon and evening. There is also a stock of snacks 24-hours a day.
