Where Lifestyle & Longevity Meet.

Instead of viewing aging through the traditional lens of lifespans, we subscribe to the Stanford Center of Longevity’s findings that today’s modern elders want to change the conversation to health spans. We believe longevity and lifestyle must coexist synergistically, each enhancing and improving the other for long-term wellness.

To that purpose, Charles E. Smith Life Communities invites you to immerse yourself in a vibrant community where a love for fine art, music, intellectual exploration, culture and history thrives. Surrounding yourself with fellow enthusiasts fosters a stimulating environment that nourishes your mind, heart and soul. Engaging in cultural experiences, sharing insights, and creating meaningful connections ignite a sense of fulfillment and well-being.

Studies show that such interactions contribute to cognitive vitality, emotional richness and a deeper appreciation of the world we live in. Join us to embrace a lifestyle where creativity and curiosity flourish, enhancing your overall health and happiness through a shared passion for the arts and intellectual pursuits.

What is important to you is important to us.

Our West Campus offers three living options, each with its own social and cultural ecosystem to provide life-enriching experiences. So whether you choose independent living, assisted living or memory care, you’ll find the residential choice best suited to you.

Staying healthy, well-balanced, mentally sharp and thoughtfully engaged are important. At CESLC, our residents influence the lifestyle options offered based on their preferences. Resident input is highly valued in program development.
