What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

Like poet Mary Oliver, EastView invites you to be intentional in the living of your life. Her challenging question offers each of us the opportunity to respond with two words.

“Be vital.”

Come to EastView and do just that. These are your years, ones where you set your own path for daily fulfillment. Maybe these questions will help guide how you advance your one wild and precious life.

Where will your gained wisdom from living take you?

What’s still on your bucket list?

What dormant passion is seeking its first breath?

What of life’s mysteries do you still hope to solve?

Where do you want to invest your time and talent to make a difference?

Amidst the comfort and security of daily living at EastView, our Residents engage in these and many other life-inspiring questions and quests. Were you to join us here, where might your path lead you?

Below is a glimpse of some offerings over the last year. Come join us and inspire more…
