CONNECT 55+ Program

CONNECT 55+: About Our Innovative Wellness Program


Calamar's CONNECT 55+ Program is a wellness program designed to empower everyone to live life to the fullest.


Wellness is a positive approach to living that emphasizes the whole person.   It is a state of being in which optimal balance is achieved between the mind and body. In order to achieve a state of wellness in our own lives, we must pay careful attention to each of the dimensions.   We may not all be free from obstacles and diseases, but we can all strive for improved wellness.


We are here to support and guide as well as provide healthy opportunities for our residents  that facilitate growth in the multiple dimensions of wellness:
