Resident Testimonials:  

“We are very happy and content with all the support we receive from the staff at Westminster Village.  We participate in many of the wellness classes such as chair-chi, balance class, flexible fitness and sit & fit.  We really enjoy the individualized wellness training we receive in the Wellness Center as well.”  Frank & Linda S. 

“Within a month in the wellness program I noticed big changes. I achieved more range of motion in my shoulder and the chronic pain became much less severe. Perhaps my biggest achievement is that I am able now to walk with a cane when I choose to. After nearly four years of being unable to walk without the walker, I can now ambulate fairly easily with a cane. I never believed that I would ever be able to do so again. We are indeed blessed here at Westminster Village to have this program available for our well-being. ” John N.
