Living at the Lakes

As in many areas of life at Twin Lakes, the vast diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and interests of our residents is a key factor in the comprehensive array of programs we offer. Our wide range of amenities and services creates a community where people of all types thrive.  Folks often say we have it all; everything they want or need for the independent life they want to lead.

Our modern facilities afford attractive community spaces for a full-range of activities, dining, and entertainment options. And, in some cases, no environment is better than the great outdoors where our gorgeous 225 acre campus provides the perfect setting for picnics, walks, fishing in one of our lakes, or just enjoying time with family and friends. Resident’s social and activity calendars are as busy or laid back as they want them to be. No matter what stage of life you’re in, Twin Lakes provides the setting for you to live your days enjoying what matters to you.

Life Long Learning
for Seniors

At Twin Lakes Community, LIVE, LEARN, and GROW is a lifestyle, not a tagline. From the arts to world affairs, our residents are engaged and passionate in the pursuit of expanding their knowledge and interests through our wide-ranging lifelong learning program.

Our strong affiliation with nationally acclaimed Elon University provides a wide array of entertaining, intellectual, and cultural events. Residents of Twin Lakes frequently attend musical performances, theatrical productions, and presentations by world-renowned speakers. Elon University’s lifelong learning program is well-attended by our residents and offers classes on a variety of topics from arts and literature, to history, politics and the sciences.

Many of our residents are season ticket holders to the Guilford College Bryan Series. Featured speakers have included heads of state, Nobel Prize Laureates, and Pulitzer Prize, Tony, Grammy, and Emmy winners. On-site offerings are many, including Friday Series and Saturday Morning Forums featuring professors and other professionals, Great Decisions series, Poets Lariats, Shakespeare classes, TLC Book Club, Literary Review, and writing classes and workshops. Managed by resident volunteers, Twin Lakes library offers books, magazines, and DVDs.

Synergy Home

Synergy: the interaction of two or more organizations or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate efforts. Twin Lakes has comprehensively captured this definition of synergy through a concept developed as part of our strategic initiative that focuses on technology. Appropriately named the Synergy Home, this specially renovated villa is the result of the combined expertise and collaboration of architects, builders, interior designers, technology innovators, and Twin Lakes staff. It is intended to be a showplace for a variety of design elements, technology, and tools to help older adults remain at home independently, safer and longer. Our goal is to stay on the cutting edge of design so we can provide resources to enable older adults not only to age in place but to thrive in place. The home incorporates the latest technology in home automation, smart appliances, cabinet systems, and a variety of other accessibility features. These products are designed to assist with vision or hearing loss, physical difficulties with ambulation, health monitoring, medication management, and an increased sense of independence.

The Synergy Home and its project leader, Moneta Springs Memory Care Administrator Tara Patton, were awarded the Excellence in Innovation Award by Leading Age North Carolina. The nomination criteria for this award states “this award honors programs and/or best practices implemented by a member community that enhances mission, improve service, inspire dedication, and/or demonstrate willingness to take risk (and even fail) in the pursuit of expanded possibilities for aging.” Leading Age North Carolina is the state association of not-for-profit providers dedicated to providing quality care, housing, health, community and related services to the elderly. This is the second time in three years that Twin Lakes has won Leading Age NC’s innovation award; we are proud to be at the front edge of innovation in senior living services.
