Socializing 2

What is independent retirement living? At The Atrium, retirement is a meeting of the minds—active, engaged seniors with wonderful experiences and ideas they are eager to share. Our holistic focus on wellness includes sharing interests, attending events, expanding knowledge and skills and participating in meaningful activities. Contact us today to schedule a tour.

Community Groups and Activities
Our seniors run book groups and storytelling groups, play bridge and blackjack, take creative writing workshops, hold current events discussions, teach computer classes, screen films and present travelogues.

Train Your BrainGuest Speakers and Lectures
The Atrium’s Community Education Series features writers, historians, artists, musicians and professionals. Each apartment home in our independent senior living community includes a front-row seat to members-only performances of plays or concerts, behind-the-scenes insight into art exhibits or historical events, and much more.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Southern Maine
Generously funded by The Bernard Osher Foundation, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Southern Maine offers fascinating courses designed for seniors who want to learn simply for the joy of learning and personal fulfillment. Our seniors enroll in courses on philosophy, sociology, history, literature and languages – and we provide the transportation.

Exploring Portland, Maine’s Cultural Offerings

With convenient transportation options and companion services available to all our seniors, taking advantage of all Portland, Maine has to offer is both easy and fun.

Bridge: Come Play With Us! Member Les Brewer coordinates the standing bridge game at The Atrium - three or four tables of players each Thursday evening. "It keeps the mid occupied and it's very social," Les explains.

Les grew up watching his grandparents play. In college, bridge was a popular early-evening activity in his fraternity, and while stationed in Paris during WWII, he played almost every night. "It kept us sane," he remembers.

Sixty-five years later, Les wants everyone to enjoy his favorite game. "If you haven't played, we'll teach you - there's always room for more!" he says.
