Daily Scheduled Events & Activities

A full calendar every day of the month, because life should be lived to the fullest

Experience a community that provides over 200 events every month.  If there’s an unofficial motto at Balfour, it’s “Never Stop Growing.” Daily life-enriching activities are an important pillar in our Health and Wellness programming.


In order to protect the health of our residents and to align with state health recommendations, we have needed to curtail many of our group activities.  We are still offering wellness activities but on a more personalized yet socially distant basis.  Once the threat of COVID-19 has passed we will add back our link to Life Enrichment daily activities.
