Why Thrive

The joy of independence

It can be harder to do the activities we enjoy as we age due to physical or other limitations. Can’t drive anymore? No problem. Regain your independence and participate in social activities from the comfort of your home in a fully immersive environment designed for older adults. Go bowling, golfing, take an art class, or attend the theater. Stay active and engaged even if it’s hard for your to get around physically.

Age in place without loneliness

Medical studies have shown loneliness and social isolation can lead to severe health conditions, including dementia, depression, and premature death. With Thrive, you can get out, participate in activities, and interact with real people. It’s like having a Community Center in your home!

Transcend distance and socialize with your loved ones

Connect with the people who matter the most: children, grandchildren, siblings, and old friends. Spend time with them physically, doing activities like attending a play, playing games, or just visiting. Thrive removes the physical distance between you and your loved ones so you can be with them more often.
