Best Senior Living Facilities
Inside the safety and protection of the Silvergate Fallbrook retirement community, seniors are finding creative ways to have fun and be active despite the new normal of the outside world. At Silvergate, residents are focused on staying healthy, spending time safely with other residents, and enjoying each day fully by taking part in regular physical activity throughout the week.
“I love the activities here at Silvergate,” said Joe Hammer, a decade-long resident at Silvergate Fallbrook who takes full advantage of the community’s activities as they are announced and offered. “I’ve been so active here. When you’re at home by yourself, you just don’t want to get ready and go out and go do things. At Silvergate, it’s easy to get involved and mix and mingle with your friends. With all the activities here, you want to do more.”
With a dedicated Activities Director planning creative and fun events daily, there are always opportunities for residents to get moving and be active. Silvergate’s staff continually plans and leads a variety of fitness classes and physical activities to help residents strengthen their bodies, improve their cognitive abilities, and maintain a greater level of independence for a longer period of time.
“We’re not letting the pandemic hamper our ability to offer fun and fulfilling activities to our residents,” said Carie Hensley, long-time Activities Director for Silvergate Fallbrook. “We offer so much more than just socially distanced card games and puzzles. We want our residents to enjoy activities that keep them physically active and mentally agile. We try to switch up our fitness classes regularly to give residents new activities to try and enjoy.”
Wide Variety of Physical Activities Offered at Silvergate Fallbrook
Each month, Silvergate’s fitness classes and wellness activities focus on cardiovascular, muscular conditioning, flexibility and balance to help improve overall physical well-being. The opportunities to participate in physical activities change regularly with new offerings that currently include:
- Sit & Be Fit Classes

- Silvergate Walking Club
“The activities here are fabulous,” said Jean Bryson, a new resident at Silvergate who has lived in Fallbrook for 26 years. “I’m a very active person. I can’t sit still. I walk every day, three times a day. When I started walking, I met a lot of lovely ladies here and I said, ‘come walk with me’ and they did! Now we have a Walking Club every night after dinner until it gets dark. We walk for at least 30 minutes every night together, and we love the exercise.”
“While movement plays an important role in any healthy lifestyle, those over the age of 70 experience greater wellness by embracing a well-rounded daily routine that includes physical activity, proper nutrition, socialization, and vigorous mental stimulation. We offer all of that here at Silvergate,” said Patricia Martinez, Executive Director for the senior living community.
