Guide to Retirement Living: Taylor Community

What is the most important thing to know about your community?                       

Taylor Community is the only premiere nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)/Lifeplan Community in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire, with locations in both Laconia and Wolfeboro. Establishing a plan for your future safety and care is essential, and coming to a community like Taylor ensures that you will have access to the very best care available, when and if you need that support in the future.

Taylor is also resident-centered, which means that our residents have a voice in their experience here. Residents not only have a strong presence on our Board of Trustees, but we have an active Resident Association with multiple committees to address myriad aspects of resident life. Our residents are engaged when it comes to planning for new and evolving amenities, services, and programming.

What is really most important to know about Taylor is that the answer to that question is going to be different for every individual; this is our residents’ home, and we strive to make each person’s experience exactly what they want it to be.

What trends are you seeing with seniors looking for retirement living, and how are you adapting to meet their expectations?

We are seeing a younger, more active population exploring retirement living options. These folks are generally looking for robust resident life programs, enhanced dining options and strong fitness and wellness opportunities. With our resident-centered approach and commitment to service excellence, we are continually adapting and shifting to meet those needs across all campuses.

Taylor has long been operating as a robust, full-service CCRC on our Laconia campus, and in recent years, we have completed construction of several beautiful new high-end homes, as well as an outdoor recreation pavilion on that campus.

We are now in the process of building a full-service program on our Wolfeboro campuses. Our newly opened Recreation and Aquatics Center features an indoor three lane lap pool, a fully equipped fitness center, space for exercise classes and more. We also have a new Pub & Bistro with expanded dinner options and our new library, both on our Sugar Hill Campus. We also recently purchased property on Lake Winnipesaukee, just across the street from our Back Bay campus, providing residents with direct and convenient waterfront access.

Most recently, we began construction on The Residence at Back Bay, which will be opening this fall with beautifully appointed apartments for Assisted Living, Memory Care and Nursing, as well as bright, sunny living areas and serene outdoor gardens. With the opening of this state-of- the-art facility, all of our residents will soon have the security and peace of mind of knowing that the full continuum of care will be available in their home community, whether that community is Laconia or Wolfeboro.
